There's a lot of evil in Arizona. Now the state has its own exorcism squad of teen girls who boast they've successfully cast out demons. "We're just normal girls who do something extraordinary for God," one of the trio, 17-year-old Brynne Larson, tells ABC News. "After seeing an actual exorcism, led by us, you will walk away with no doubt whatsoever." Brynne, who has a Karate black belt along with her two co-warriors, 20-year-old Savannah and Tess, 17, is the leader of the group, and is known as the "enforcer." There is a "war going on every day, being waged against us," Brynne said. "Satan hates us."

Brynne learned her trade from her pop, the Rev. Bob Larson of Phoenix, who claims he has performed more than 10,000 exorcisms in the last 30 years. Larson believes 50% of the population is affected by demons in one way or another, and the girl squad is the best defense against them. The trio summons demons, then casts them out of humans armed with holy water, Bibles and crucifixes. Brynne knows a demon when she sees one. "When you look at that person, you can just see the evil looking back," she says. Another pastor says it's more likely mental illness. Rev. Larson is currently entertaining offers for a reality TV program. (More exorcism stories.)
