In this, the fourth and final part of our demonic possession week extravaganza, I'll be asking the fundamental question: does this stuff only happen at the movies, or is there anything actually to it?

I'll be sharing my report from the Seriously Possessed conference, organised by ASSAP (The Association for the Scientific Study of Anomolous Phenomenon) where I heard views from skeptics, psychologists, sociologists, historians, spirit mediums and occultists. The episode also includes some helpful interviews I recorded with attendees of the conference.

Hang on...you mean there's more than four possession movies out there? Yup..there's a LOT more and here's another two of them.

I'll be looking at the recent Scott Derrickson movie DELIVER US FROM EVIL (2014) about a New York police sergeant trying to police Satan and his minions - imagine the paperwork!

Then we'll look at the blaxploitation movie ABBY (1974) Known as The Black Exorcist this fun and intriguing horror stars William Marshall (yeah, I know...Blacula 'vs' Nigerian devil Gods - how cool is that?).

We continue our look at the whacked out, creepy world of demonic possession. Tonight I'll be discussing what I reckon is a pretty darn freaky possession movie: BEYOND THE DOOR from 1974. Seen by many as a cruddy Exorcist rip off, I found it to be inventive and yes, even a little bit scary.

Then we enter the little known world of Jewish Exorcism as I review the 2012 moth-bourne spirit movie: THE POSSESSION. Shalom!

Shark Week? Pah!...how about blinkin' demonic possession week!

Join me over the next four nights for a four part series reviewing no less than six demonic possession movies. Then in part four I'll be discussing the real life implications of demonic possession and exploring opinion from psychologists, occultist, sociologists and, well...me.

Part One:
Tonight I'll be asking if the devil might lack ambition in THE EXORCIST (1973), and I'll also analyse the Turkish version, called SEYTAN (1974)

Join me as we spend five days in Dracula country, trekking off to Romania in search of Vampires. Includes discussion of Bram Stoker, Bran Castle, Medieval Torture and Romanian Folklore.

Music used in this episode includes:
'The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane' by Christian Gaubert.
'Dark Shadows' by Bob Cobert.
'Music for Strings and Percussion and Celesta Sz. 106 Adagio' by Bela Bartok.

All other music composed and recorded by Peter Laws.

Sound effects:
'Airplane Taking off at Beirut Airport' by Ramston.
'Airplane Cabin 01 090320' by LG*
'Stereo Jet Landing Sample 2' by bigpickle51
'Water Drops in a Bathtub' by Doxent

*Note: I recorded the entire spiel for the section on Bram Stoker on the plane but then when I went to edit it, I noticed the sound of the cabin was waaaay too loud and I could barely hear it. So I re-recorded the same words but felt I wanted to re-create the original recording. Just a little audio magic there, see?

Hey! You're still here...good. That means we can talk more about the great film Day of the Dead, reflecting on some of it's challenging themes. In this episode I explore the character of Sarah, who is the lone woman in a world of zombies and men. Awkward! Then, we reflect on what Romero, zombies and Trappist monk Thomas Merton might have in common, and no it's just not 'little hair'.

*Some tracks incorporate some of the melodies from the awesome Day of the Dead soundtrack - available at lalalandrecords.com and composed by the mighty John Harrison.

Sound effects used in this episode include

The dead have truly inherited the earth! Which means us humans aren't welcome up there anymore. Instead we have to plod around in a big old underground cave having shouty arguments and working out why Zombies aren't into Stephen King...Yes, tonight its the first in a two part episode, looking at George A Romero's under-appreciated gem: Day of the Dead.
