Some movie buffs who enjoyed shrieking to “The Exorcism of Emilie Rose” are probably unaware that the 2005 horror film was actually inspired by the real-life demonic possession of a German girl named Anneliese Michel.
Anneliese, who underwent clandestine Catholic exorcism rites in 1975, died a year after due to severe dehydration and starvation. At that time, it was Germany’s first official and public case of exorcism in about 50 years, and the only known case to have actual audio recordings.
Warning: This article contains the real pictures and actual audio recording taken during Anneliese’s exorcism. These may be too frightening and disturbing for some readers.
Anneliese was born on September 21, 1952.
She was described as a happy, kind, polite, intelligent, and compassionate young lady.
She was very knowledgeable about the Catholic faith and was deeply religious.
Annaliese with her siblings and parents, Anna and Josef Michel.
But in 1969, at the age of 17, her quiet and peaceful life changed as she started to experience constant epileptic seizures and convulsions. She was diagnosed with severe psychosis and temporal lobe epilepsy. Anneliese received medical treatment at a psychiatric hospital, but this only exacerbated her depression even more.
Three years after, Anneliese began to display an intolerance to religious articles.
According to reports, she also began to hallucinate…
And claimed to see demons and hear voices that condemn her to hell.
No medical treatment seemed to help and she even became suicidal.
This made her family believe that she may be possessed by demons.
Anneliese’s parents, Josef and Anna Michel, sought the help of priests and requested for a Catholic exorcism, but the priests declined and recommended for the continuation of her medical treatment.
Until Fr. Ernst Alt and Arnold Renz decided to help the family.
In 1975, they asked Bishop Josef Stangl for permission to perform clandestine exorcism on the young lady.
The exorcism lasted for 10 months.
During Anneliese’s “episodes”, her voice and face would change into something demonic. She’d tear her clothes apart, lick her own urine, and eat coal. Reports claim that the demons who possessed her would identify themselves as Cain, Judas Iscariot, Nero, Hitler, and Lucifer himself.
Anneliese later talked about dying as a martyr and refused to eat.
After 67 exorcisms, Anneliese Michel died due to severe dehydration and starvation on the 1st of July, 1976– she was 23-years-old.
The priests claimed that the exorcism was a success…
…and that she was freed from the demons who possessed her just before she passed away.
However, her parents and the priests were apprehended by authorities and were charged with negligent homicide. They paid a fine and were sentenced to serve six months in jail, but it was reduced to three years of probation.

Anneliese Michel’s case has been referred to as an example of negligence, abuse, religious hysteria, and misidentified psychological disorder. But the priests, their bishop, her family, and some close friends believe she was indeed possessed.

The lion will always be the king of the jungle and anyone who shall walk his path should bow before him. This was the conventional protocol but these herd of buffalos obviously begged to disagree.

Mom Was Filming Her Child, Then This Creepy Creature Suddenly Appears!
She decided to film her child when the kid started acting strange. Then she saw this!
Nothing seems impossible in this day and age anymore. There are several bizarre occurrences that have caused pandemonium over the internet only to be debunked by experts who say it's nothing more than great visual effects. UFOs; creepy, mythical creatures; vicious monsters in the jungle--who can blame others for dismissing the fact that these could be real? There are numerous apps that can help us create these things even by just using our phones, right?
But whether the creature in the video below is real or not, one thing I can say for sure is that it's really creepy!
The video was recorded last January 2011 by a woman named Silvia. She lives in Santa Fe, Argentina with her family. Apparently, they have been noticing some strange behaviors from then 2-year-old Benjamin, Silvia's son. The little boy seemed to have been talking and playing with someone...or something in his room and in several corners of their house. However, thinking that it was just normal for kids his age to display such behaviors, they dismissed it. But on that particular day, the kid seemed a bit nervous. To better understand why the boy was acting strange, she decided to film the kid using her cell phone's camera, and wait and see if something would eventually turn up.
Netizens Express Disgust As Woman Was Found Pooping In A Public Place In Hong Kong
This photo showing a woman squatting and pooping in a public place in Hong Kong has earned online ire.
There are some events in this world that are just plain bizarre that we can't even decipher the real reason why it happened. "To each his own," said the popular saying - this means that each individual has his/ her own quirks and oddities that some people may not understand. This includes thumb sucking even past the infant stage, having very unique bedtime routines, etc.
But in this web post we saw, we can't help but cringe upon seeing this photo of a woman in a public place in Hong Kong. She was seen squatting in the middle of Tai Wai's Lung Hang Estate seemingly doing a number two. The caption of the original photo posted online read, "Be careful of stepping on landmines.”
