Girl Teen Exorcist Force, GO!

This is apparently a real thing in the world. Jerry Coyne wrote about it, but it took some convincing to get me to believe it.

Reverend Bob Larson, who is infamous for performing exorcisms, has decided to become a franchise of sorts. According to the Daily Mail, Larson has “100 teams of trained exorcists working all over the world,” but those pesky demons are still getting out of hand.

One on Larson’s crack exorcist squads consists of five teenage girls, one of which is Larson’s daughter. This is weird enough that it earned the full treatment from NMA News, the Taiwanese animated news service.

    A old, male Christian preacher finding excuses to hang around teenage girls flicking holy-water on their tee-shirts and dribbling candle-wax on them… There’s nothing at all creepy about that, right?



  • Michael Mock

    You know, if that were an anime series (or even a movie), I’d almost certainly watch it…

    In real life, it’s vastly more disturbing.

  • Reginald Selkirk

    This has potential for a Saturday morning cartoon.
    And I would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for those pesky kids!

  • messiestobjects

    Looks like a Buffy rip-off, to me.

  • FO

    Wow! Are they color-coded Power Ranger-style?

  • Francesco

    i thougth it was a new anime trailer…

  • Yoav

    At first I thought the girl on the right was holding her iPhone. Casting out demons, there’s an app for that.

    • UrsaMinor

      Oh, but casting in demons is much more fun.

  • vasaroti

    What’s with the friendly bluebirds? Are they familiars?
    Having been to Taiwan, I regret to say that there are plenty of people who believe in both indigenous and imported Christian superstitions.

  • Schaden Freud

    Isn’t applying the franchise concept to your spiritual philosophy tacitly admitting what a money-grabbing con it really is?

  • Ebon Badger

    Awwwwww :( I got all excited then! I would totally watch Girl Teen Exorcist Force, it’s got “so bad it’s hilarious” written all over it, but it’s just some batshit old man sending out teams to harass people.

    I wrote an article on Hubpages called “The boy who lived as a chicken.” He was put with chickens until he was 8, with no human interaction, presumably because of superstitions that he was possessed. Language pathways didn’t develop in his brain. Acts like a chicken and severely autistic child (but not autistic). People try to cast demons out of him. So sad.

    I grew up in pentecostal church & my family believes in all this bullshit.

    Hey, guys, pause the video at 0:16. There’s a killer bunny.

    • vorjack

      I saw that and thought, “hey, it’s Bunicula!”

      • UrsaMinor

        Glad I’m not the only one who thought that.

    • Paul

      Well, you do need divine help to get rid of those, specifically of the holy hand grenade type.

      • LRA

        That thou may blowest thine enemy to smithereens… in thy mercy.

    Buffy meets Charlie’s Angels. In a bad way.

    i have been one of those “debunkers” who have been “hot on his trail for some 20 years”… in fact i, as Wraith Ugly, was antagonising bob larson 30 years ago… he’s more real than i wanted to deal with, which is why i “committed suicide” on his radio program…
