Trance is a sleeplike state marked by reduced sensitivity to stimuli, loss or alteration of knowledge, and automatic motor activity. Trances are often induced by external sources such as music, singing, and direct suggestion from another person. Trances may provide a sense of protection, wisdom, and greatness. For the group, it can induce a sense of togetherness and unity. Meditation is a quiet and relaxed state of tranquility in which a person achieves an integration of thoughts, perceptions, and attitudes. Usually, this state is attained with the cooperation of a special principle or belief.

Hypnosis is a process of alteration of a person’s consciousness, characterized by willingness to cooperate with a person who conduct hypnosis, heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction. Coma is a state of deep unconsciousness, usually the result of injury, disease, or poison, in which an individual is incapable of sensing or responding to external stimuli and internal needs.

The original story was allegedly “Based on a True Story!” It is a fair question to ask for some historical accuracy when a film (or book) is touted as having been based on real events. After all, if the story is too fictionalized, why bother to go with the “ripped-from-the- headlines” angle, except for marketing purposes? The “real story” behind The Exorcist is a long and complicated one, but I’ll give the short version and direct readers to all the gory (and not-so-gory) details for further reading. There are a number of “this is the REAL story” accounts out there; most of them are simply rehashed and poorly researched books and
