For those horror loving freaks we love so much who don’t usually hunker down for a night of normal prime time TV, here is your heads up. This Thursday, January 17th at 9pm et/pt on CBS (check local listings for exactly where to park your eyeballs, CSI features a rebroadcast of “Go To Hell”, an episode where the usual trail of carnage may point to demonic intervention! CBS offered a list of things you didn’t know about this episode, for the CSI heads in the house. Here are the highlights for the creepily inclined…
1. Parts of the text for Harold Perrineau’s exorcism rites performed in
the motel room are taken from actual, recorded exorcism rituals from the 1930’s.
2. The image of the preacher, filmed upside-down and dripping blood
upward, was originally conceived as the opening shot of the episode.
Writers worked on a version of the story where CSI investigators found a dead body on the ceiling. The story evolved, but the original image remained in the show.
3. An alternate ending was proposed but never shot: having the “possessed” girl kill the preacher. Similarities to the 1973 film The Exorcist led producers to choose the ending currently seen.
4. The bee in the opening teaser sequence is entirely computer-generated, as are the swarming hive of bees Grissom discovers in the attic, and the bees seen in Grissom’s portable hive.
I guess the supernatural isn’t just a subject for Baywatch Nights
