A new series appeared in the USA this past September. It’s called “Evil” and it deals with the investigations into demon possession and miracles. There are three main characters:

David Acosta who is an assessor working for the Catholic Church. He is not a priest but is studying for the priesthood.

Kristen Bouchard, a forensic psychiatrist with four young daughters.

Ben Shakir, the technology expert.

Together they investigate possible cases of demonic possession and claims of the miraculous.

Another character, Leland Townsend, is played by Michael Emerson who was in “Lost” and “Person of Interest”. The nature of his character is mysterious, other than being completely evil.

So what is an assessor? When someone seeks an exorcism in the Catholic Church, their case must first be investigated to determine if actual possession is involved? This is done to determine if the person is genuinely possessed or if there is some kind of mental illness. This is the job of the assessor. He and, in this case, his team determine what is going on. He does not perform the exorcism. That is done by specially trained priests. In this series he also has the job of investigating miracles but, in reality, this would not be the case. That would be handled by others.

Of the three people on the team, only the assessor believes in the existence of demons. The other two completely reject the possibility which makes them more useful to the assessor.

The show is very scary but well done. If you are prone to nightmares I would think twice about watching it. However, if you like scary movies, I highly recommend it.
