SHOCK DOCS – SCREAM: THE TRUE STORY

TWO-HOUR SPECIAL – Begins Streaming Friday, January 14 on discovery+

“Scream” may be one of the most successful horror movie franchises of all time, but the real fright lies in its terrifyingly true roots – the horrific story of serial killer Danny Rolling, aka the Gainesville Ripper. Now, just in time for the release of the newest “Scream” movie, SCREAM: THE TRUE STORY, the latest installment in the Shock Docs series, delves into the real-life horror of a murderer who believed he was a possessed by a demon and whose gruesome crime spree inspired the blockbuster film. Through a groundbreaking paranormal investigation, archival media and expert interviews, the docu-special – featuring paranormal investigator Steve Shippy and psychic medium Cindy Kaza – takes a closer look at the alleged diabolical forces involved and whether Rolling’s spirit still lurks in the shadows. As Shippy and Kaza conduct the first-ever paranormal investigation of the Florida campsite from which Rolling stalked his victims, as well as inside his childhood home in Louisiana, they are confronted by powerful malevolent energy – could it be the demonic force that possessed Rolling, or is it the spirit of Rolling himself? Fearing for everyone’s safety, they call in a demonologist to conduct an exorcism and help battle off the evil forces.
