The family is forced to take action when they witness the child being attacked by an unseen force. It's soon clear that the "beast" is trying to take over the boy's soul.

  • frightening demon

    When I saw the demon at the well and when that dude was driving his car he was distinctly demon-like and I almost screamed in terror. That gave nightmares for 2 weeks.
  • In 1980, Arne Johnson had been staying with his fiancee, whose younger brother supposedly had been possessed by demons and whose family called in the famed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Johnson taunted and was possessed by demons from the boy.moreless

    FYI...On November 24, 1981 Arne Johnson was charged for first degree manslaughter of his landlord Alan Bono. His defense lawyer tried to argue in court that he was possessed, but the judge ruled that no such defense existed, and Johnson served 5 years of a 10 to 20 year sentence. Carl Glatzel Jr (Johynson's brother) has stated that the possession story was a hoax concocted by Ed and Lorraine Warren to exploit the family and his brother's mental illness, and that the book the Warren's wrote presents him as the villain because he disbelieved in the supernatural claims. He sued the Warrens, but i don't know the results.moreless
  • A boy is possessed by an evil demon.

    A boy suddenly is possessed by an evil demon that is determined to take his soul. Okay, this is what I don't understand. Why haven't the parents moved out of this evil house? I'd be gone in a nano second. The Church is brought in to help the family and most importantly the boy. The epi takes some strange turns as the demon slash old man do not want to leave especially without their spoils, the boy's soul. The Priest does an excellent job at the exorcism and I didn't sleep without my Cross in my hand for a week after this show. After something like that the parents should move and put the child in therapy! It was truly a spine chilling, freak me out story. One of the scariest to date.moreless
  • A real scary one. Poor kid.

    Boy you feel sorry for that little boy. The old man/beast keeps possessing him and making him do things that he would never do to his family. The storyline was amazing though. You really got into it. It had a lot of drama especially at the end where that kid nearly died when he was going through the exorcism. He's such a sweet kid too. He's the kind of kid that every family wants. I do wonder why the beast came out of the well in the first place. What was the purpose behind that? I hope that family is doing well especially the kid. He deserves a good life after what happened.moreless
