Numerous accounts and mentions of demonic possession can be found across cultures and religions, with the Bible mentioning demonic possession over thirty times; but is there any real truth to the stories or are they merely just that - stories?
While stories of possession and the exorcism of those demons may be the basis of many great horror movies, off screen, the practice of performing an exorcism has seen a surge over the last century, in part due to the media attention to the subject. Possession is often discredited in the medical community and labelled as a mental disorder, but demonomania has been listed as a real medical and psychiatric diagnosis where the patient believes themselves to be possessed by a demon or demons. More recently, the strange case of a patient named Julia has been diagnosed as being possessed by a demon by American psychiatrist Dr. Richard E. Gallagher, the first such case to ever be recognized in the medical community.
Whether demonic possession is in fact real or merely a mislabelled disorder, read on to find out about some of the most terrifying stories involving individuals who have been believed to be and have displayed classic signs of being possessed by demons. Maybe these stories will convince you.
