I happen to be a very strong believer in spirits, ghosts, heaven, hell, demons and strongly believe in the fact that they influence life in a lotta ways. although im supposed to be a man of science and supposed to always look at the scientific aproach towards anything....i still strongly believe in the above mentioned "things".
There are firm reasons for my belief which i don really wish to share. some of u ppl might know what im talkin about but i have enough of personal reasons to believe in the existence in the paranormal world. a loved one will never leave u forever even after his or her death and u can be absolutely sure he or her is always there. i also feel disturbed spirits can never rest until whatever they wanted is totally accomplished.
I went for this movie today...The Exorcism of Emily Rose
. Most of u guys would have probably seen "The Exorcist" or probably "Exorcist-The Beginning". Although this movie was mostly the same thing. i.e:the devil possessing a girl and a preis tries to drive it away and stuff......There was one particular line that flashed before and after the movie that made me quite curious.
"BASED ON A TRUE STORY"
Walkin outta the theatre...i was actually wonderin how the whole thing could actually happen to a young girl in real life. Thats when i decided to study a bit on the facts. Thats when i discovered, Anneliese Michel
. The young girl from Bavaria, Germany.
She was a normal girl who led a normal life until one day when she was 16. She felt there were forces acting on her...that didn't let her call for help and paralysed her. She was considered Epileptic
and was admitted to a hospital. The "attacks" didn't stop. She began seeing Demonic Faces in her daily prayers and was slowly being taken over. since none of the medical attention she was getting seemed to help, her parents decided to perform an exorcism on her. By this time, anneliese started eating spiders and coal since the demons didn't let her eat normal food. after all this, the church finally agreed to conduct the exorcism on her. During these exorcisms, she revealed that it wasn't one, but six demons were inside her. Lucifer, Nero, Cain, Judas, Legion and Belial. All the exorcisms were audio taped and they also recorded the demons arguing with eah other as to who would stay in her body and who wouldn't.Anneliese talked about wanting to die in order to save the souls of others. She stopped eating, rejected all medical help, and relied solely upon the priests to deliver her from the demons she believed were attacking her. Her knees ruptured after about 600 exorcisms due to the genuflections she had to do(kneeling down on the floor in prayer). She suffered from malnutrition and didn't even have strength to walk but during the exorcisms, she would sometimes need to be tied up i
n chains as there were sudden bursts of violence leading to her destroying pictures of christ and crucifixes in the house. She eventually died out of starvation during one of the exorcisms.
All this makes one helluva fiction story. but it ain't one. Believe it or not...it happened. It happened way before any of us were even born which is why nobody even knows about it. Whether or not she was possessed by demons is open to debate, but nothing can diminish the tragedy of her passing.Her grave became, and remains, a place of pilgrimage and religious importance to those who believe that the brave girl lost her life fighting the forces of darkness.
While The Exorcism of Emily Rose bears the legend "based on a true story," respect must be given to the actual people and events on which the story is taken. Audiences should not forget, while they are being entertained, that no matter what their beliefs, Anneliese Michel, the real "Emily Rose," was no fictional character.A request. please click on the Anneliese Michel link and read the whole story.
