The Exorcist Files
At her wits end, Jenny Owens doesn’t know where to turn. Her twenty-two-year-old daughter Allison has moved back home with a two-year-old daughter of her own. Jenny, who loves her daughter and granddaughter deeply, does her best to support, encourage, and help, but the situation is getting out of hand. Allison is acting more like a rebellious teenager than a responsible mom.
After numerous attempts to reach her daughter, Jenny makes one last desperate move to connect; she calls The Billy McBride Show, tabloid TV at its worst. The topic: “Families Out of Control.” Billy McBride is a no-nonsense, no-holds-barred TV host. Jenny believes that maybe he can help her get through to Allison. But Billy has issues of his own, and TV ratings not counseling are his main concern. He’s done the same basic routine hundreds of times: tease the topic, badger the guests, shock the viewing audience.
When the show explodes with Allison’s nationally-televised suicide attempt, McBride’s ratings skyrocket, and despite himself, Billy finds that this desperate girl and her mother have touched something deep inside his own heart. Maybe he really can do something to help. But nothing could have prepared him for the evil that he would encounter…
