The Last Exorcism Blu-ray and DVD Possessed?

Earlier today we announced the DVD and Blu-ray release of Daniel Stamm’s The Last Exorcism (review here), and while the movie itself is certainly spooky enough, apparently the making of the special features on the disc itself is even scarier.

According to producer Eli Roth on Twitter:

“There were no supernatural incidents making #LastExorcism, yet 3 people quit working on the DVD because demons attempted contact.

We have a real possession victim in our special features, the problem is people working on it will no longer touch the footage. I’m serious.

People will think it’s a publicity stunt but we are actually having difficulty finding people who will finish the DVD. No one will risk it.

The DVD comes out Jan 4th in the U.S. so we have time to get it done. But once people learn why the others have quit they say no thanks.

I learned this last week when I did my commentary. I thought Lionsgate was kidding, but they weren’t. You cant make this stuff up.

Lionsgate is including TWO protection prayers on the #LastExorcism DVD at the recommendation of the exorcist on our commentary.”

Apparently people were quitting work on the home video package, not because they were scared to work on it, but because strange things kept happening to them. Weird indeed.

      A possessed DVD… really… Look, if the Devil is real and looking to do people real harm, why does it require a DVD to work it’s Satanic powers through? If you want to do real harm, why not ‘possess’ people and harm people through something more accessible – more universal – like sex for instance?

      WOULD YOU LIKE A BLOWING JOB? No thanks, I’m still recovering from the blowing job that was The Last Exorcism.
