Exorcist theme park in Iraq?

‘Exorcist’ lets U.S. soldiers put new spin on time in Iraq:

Last month, Capt. Nik Guran of the 2-320 Field Artillery Regiment, a “major unit” of the 101st Airborne Division stationed in the small Iraqi town of Hatra, inserted a copy of The Exorcist in a portable DVD player. As the film began, Guran had the weird realization he was sitting at the location where director William Friedkin shot the opening sequence of his 1973 horror classic. “And then the Army hatched this idea,” Friedkin continued, “to turn the whole area into a tourist attraction and call it ‘The Exorcist Experience.’”
