Ivy League Exorcist

From WGNO News:

A new comedy short film, “Ivy League Exorcist: The Bobby Jindal Story” is rasing eyebrows. California filmmakers, Cult Jam Productions recently premiered the film at Comic Con, and now the video is on You Tube.

The film is poking fun at Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s so-called experience with an exorcism on one of his college friends, Susan while at Brown University. Inspiration for the flick, which cost $300 to make came after filmmakers read an article, “Beating A Demon: Physical Dimensions of Spiritual Warfare” written in 1994 by Gov. Jindal for the New Oxford Review. The article described his friend’s exorcism, and how he protected her with holy water and crucifixes.

From The Advocate:

Although he usually issues at least a prepared statement in response to an interview request, Jindal refused to do so when asked Friday about the film.

The governor’s spokesman, Kyle Plotkin, wrote: “That movie is insane. It’s just plain absurd.”

The film’s writer and producer, Troy Davis, of Los Angeles, said he created the video because he was flabbergasted when he read the New Oxford Journal article earlier this year. He said the experience that Jindal described was bizarre and demented.

“I wanted to throw it back to people and say, ‘Hey, make up your own minds,’ ” Davis said in an interview.
