Documented Cases of Demonic Possession

5 Extremely Creepy Cases Of Demonic Possession

Starting off this series with documented cases of demonic possession was probably not the most tepid way to go but people just seem to love this stuff ( and by people I mostly mean ME! ).

I think people have been living in the Hollywood zone for far too long now – they have ingested so many exorcism based movies they actually forget that ALL of these movies are based on some sort of truth!

Since at least the third century, the Latin Church has formally ordained men to the minor order of exorcist. These exorcists usually performed their ceremonies on adults and infants just before they were due to be exorcised.

This religious law stood right up until 1972 when the minor orders were reformed. This meant that men preparing to be ordained as Catholic priests or deacons would no longer receive the minor order of exorcist.

From this point it has been left up to local Bishops to contact the Vatican directly to establish a ministry of exorcist.

This Documentary

I found this documentary on YouTube the other day on a channel named Top5s – at the time of writing this they had 874,017 subscribers ( not bad at all! ).

It covers five of the most ‘covered’ demonic possessions on record and I have to admit – they’ve done a pretty good job on all angles ( in my humble opinion ). Here’s the short blurb they have included in their YouTube video description:

“From the real inspiration behind the Exorcist movie, to the terrifying story of Anneliese Michel who was said to be possessed by 6 demons, Cain, Nero, Judas Iscariot, Valentin Fleischmann, Adolf Hitler and Lucifer here are 5 of the scariest cases of Demonic Possession ever documented.”

Not much of a description I know but these guys let the videos do the talking instead of aiming for YouTube SEO – the way it should be really!

I also like the fact that this bunch appear to come from my neck of the woods ( well they’re English by the sound of it and I’m Welsh! ).

Anyway, I’ve rambled on for long enough – click the video above and see what you think. Remember – if you enjoy the video, scoot over to YouTube and show the love ( Subscribe, hit the ‘thumbs up’ button, comment etc. ).

  1. Great little video! Scary…shouldn’t be watching at work! It was engaging and the visuals added but didn’t distract me from what the narrator was saying. I’ve always been interested in these kinds of stories and it was nice to get a good breakdown of the popular ones! You’re right; with all the movies based on these stories we start to dilute the truth! Thanks for posting; what made you so interested in this paranormal world?

    1. Well I suppose I’m just a bit of a geek at heart Kenzie – I always see some sort of conspiracy…even if there isn’t one present LOL!

  2. Creepy stuff…….. and I definitely have always believed that people can be possessed by demons because evil does exist and spirits of both good and evil do indeed inhabit the earth. Just my opinion of course, but why else are humans sooo prone to acts of pure evil if something isn’t pulling their strings…? The guy’s voice in the video could have been a little more ‘Vincent Price’ (I’m a dramatist) but it was definitely well worth watching. Nice, well done 🙂

    1. Yeah his voice wasn’t exactly a great fit was it Jyl? Cool video though – I’ve got a lot of time for this one! 🙂

  3. Hey, Chris Thanks for the wonderful video!
    I have to deal with my own demon when I was growing through my youth to an teenager. When i was younger I always had dreams of demon heads chasing me around while I was running in my sleep.When I got older. When I decided to accept jesus christ into my heart as a teenager and to be annointed by the holy spirit. The demon was yelling to me get them the fuck away and was using my physical body to fight them. After being annointed by the holy spirit I felt as if a great weight had been lifted from me physically and spirutually.

    Yours Truly,

    1. Wow that’s quite a childhood Carlton! Thanks for sharing that with us – really intense account. Great to hear you are doing better now!

  4. Such creepy stuff! Great video. I grew up with this stuff. There was a couple by the name of Ed and Lorraine Warren from Monroe, CT (the town right next door to me). They investigated all of this stuff and then they would put on shows for the public showing pictures and videos and telling their stories.

    Great stuff! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Dani!

      Yeah we’ve got a couple of articles on this site about Ed & Lorraine – use the search bar on the top right of the site to check ’em out! 🙂
