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.
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. ).
