This documentary explores Nazi Espionage, Witchcraft and the Supernatural in an attempt to finally piece together this sinister jigsaw puzzle once and for all.

8:30pm: The Exorcist
This tale of an exorcism is based loosely on actual events. When young Regan (Linda Blair) starts acting odd — levitating, speaking in tongues — her worried mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks medical help, only to hit a dead end. A local priest (Jason Miller), however, thinks the girl may be seized by the devil. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert (Max von Sydow) to help with the difficult job.
