Episode Eighteen: The Exorcist and Constantine

Welcome to the Halloween episode of Checking the Gate, where we examine the religious veracity of the classic horror movie “The Exorcist” and the more recent (and not so classic) “Constantine.”  We look at the fictions put forth in these movies, the former based on a novel and the latter based on graphic novels, to see if they line up with reality.  We have a lot of laughs along the way!
