NYPD’s Real-Life Occult Squad Inspires Cinedigm


Indie-streamer Cinedigm will bring a new scripted audio series, Demon Squad, to horror fans in the fall of 2023. The weekly, 12-episode series is based on the true story of the NYPD’s occult task force.

Demon Squad is set in 1973 New York City, where a team of misfit cops is formed to handle supposed supernatural cases in a PR stunt, but the team actually starts solving real supernatural crimes.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Tony to bring these amazing but absolutely true supernatural cases to life via the newest fiction series being added to our growing podcast network,” said Tom Owen, Managing Director, Bloody Disgusting/Cinedigm. “Horror and true crime are two genres that we – like the fans of these genres– are passionate about, and Demon Squad has elements of both, making it the best of both worlds. We can’t wait to explore these cases through premium, audio storytelling.”


  1. Cool, I think. I don’t know if the solving of the issues uses the occult. I hope not. If it’s the cop and the plain-clothed priest, it won’t, because there was a movie made about them. There were no laser-like guns or traps an add the Ghostbusters movie characters were not assembled by anyone.
