Mexican exorcists are in demand
Exorcists in Mexico say the number of people seeking their help has doubled and even tripled recently.
In Mexico City, a steady procession of anguished souls pass through the doors of Catholic parishes to seek out the eight priests appointed by the archbishop to do battle with Satan.
Experts believe the increase is due to the release of a new version of the 1973 movie The Exorcist; as well as reports that Pope John Paul II himself tried to exorcise the devil from a young woman in Rome in September. And a highly publicised case of a botched, unauthorised exorcism in Puebla state, in which several women were seriously injured, has revived interest in exorcism.
