Since priests and demons frighten me, my colleague Peg Aloi,
who in addition to being a fine critic and writer is also a practicing Wiccan,
agreed to conduct this interview with the exorcist who inspired the new film
"The Rite," which opens Friday.
Here's Peg's story:
Father Gary Thomas is the subject of Matt Baglio's book "The Rite: The
Making of a Modern Exorcist" (Doubleday Religion),
which was the inspiration for Mikael Hafstrom's film "The Rite," opening in
theatres January 28, 2011.
