A producer has held a mass exorcism at a London cinema, claiming his film was being haunted by evil spirits.

Filmmaker Bill Bungay blamed several strange occurrences connected with his film When the Lights Went Out on "the effects of a demonic possession".

Two showings of the horror film at the Soho Screening Rooms were hit by blackouts, with Bungay deciding to hold an exorcism to cleanse the cinema.

Using the help of 100 male and female religious friends, he felt that exorcism needed to be held as it could not have been a "coincidence".

Bungay's film is based on the supposed haunting of a Yorkshire home that belonged to director Pat Holden's aunt Jean Pritchard in the 1970s.

The producer said: "It was one thing to put the first power failure down to a bit of bad luck.

"But to move cinemas and have exactly the same thing happen 20 minutes into the movie when the evil presence is first felt was beyond coincidence, and has caused much concern for the production."

However, cinema projectionist Paul Speed stated that the incidents were likely more technical than paranormal.

"In Soho, we get outages when there is a big demand for power for heating when the temperature drops," he said.
