Taboos and Subcultures: Devils and Demons
Devils and Demons
Season 9  |  Episode 3  |  SBS Viceland  |  July 24, 2020

Many cultures around the world believe evil can manifest in demonic spirits that enter a person's body. For some who believe, the only solution is an exorcism. In Phoenix, Arizona, a battle for the souls of those said to be possessed is being waged, not by priests, but by five teenage girls. In the Potosi silver mines of Bolivia, miners believe the best way to survive the extreme working conditions is to cut a deal with the devil. In Colombia, a man's life is crumbling away. Believing he is tortured by demons, he feels he has only two options: suicide or an exorcism. But this exorcism isn't sanctioned by the church. It's a bizarre and elaborate ritual that has to be seen to be believed. In Florida, an ex-sex worker and drug addict has become the leader of an evangelical ministry that promises salvation through deliverance from demonic possession.
