Was the Exorcism of Emily Rose (Anneliese Michel) Real?





Was the Exorcism of Emily Rose (Anneliese Michel) Real? In Ghostly’s twenty-seventh episode, Pat and Rebecca continue their exploration of exorcisms by taking a closer look at the real story behind the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose. The movie is based on the real life of Anneliese Michel and her claim of being possessed. Her death after receiving the rite of exorcism led to criminal charges for her parents and the priests involved. Was Anneliese (aka Emily Rose) really possessed by demons?

What is the History of this Exorcism?





Listen to Pat give the history of the real story behind the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose. A young woman named Anneliese Michael experienced symptoms of what doctors said was epilepsy but what she and her parents came to believe was a possession by multiple demons. They found priests willing to perform exorcisms, 67 of them in all. When Anneliese died in 1976, the priests and the parents were charged with negligent homicide.

What Spooky Stories of Exorcism are told?





Rebecca adds to the story by going into the claim that Anneliese saw the Blessed Mary, who asked her to choose if she wanted to suffer and die to serve as a call to those who have fallen in their faith or to have the demons removed through an exorcism and she could live out her life. What did she choose? Also learn about the trial and whether the priests and parents were convicted of her death.









Debate





We are saving the debate for
Exorcisms until the final episode of the month, so there will not be a poll for
this episode yet. But keep talking and thinking if you believe in possession
and exorcisms. Was it right that her parents were charged? What about the priests?

So stoked for this episode. I remember finding this movie when I was in high school and thinking that the 'based on a true story' bit was one of those VERY lose, VERY fictionalized, interpretation types. Terrifying movie, and sad story.
