You may have heard of the film, The Exorcism of Emily Rose. It follows the story of a young girl who is seemingly possessed by the devil. Well, did you know the movie was based on a real person? Meet Anneliese Michel, and the woman who had real-life exorcisms:

Annelise was born in 1952 in Germany and was raised a strict Catholic. She was described as nice and very likable by those who knew her.
When Anneliese was 16, she experienced her first “episode,” in which she lost consciousness. Later that same night, she felt like something was pressing down on her, holding her down. Following that, she had another episode and was taken to two doctors who believed her episodes may be related to seizures.
Over the next three years, she would have similar episodes, despite her brain scans coming back normal.
