Summary
The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, are torn apart when 14-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia. To her parents’ despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie’s descent into madness. when the family reluctantly turns to a local Catholic priest for help, he suggests an exorcism. He also contacts a production company that is eager to document the Barretts’ plight. With John, Marjorie’s father, out of work and medical bills looming, the family agrees to be filmed, and soon find themselves the stars of a hit reality show. When events in the Barrett household explode in tragedy, the show and the shocking incidents it captures become the stuff of urban legend. Fifteen years later, a writer interviews Marjorie’s younger sister, Merry. As she recalls those long ago events that took place when she was just eight years old, long-buried secrets and painful memories that clash with what was broadcast on television begin to surface—and a mind-bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed
