If you’ve seen Scott Derrickson’s 2005 film The Exorcism Of Emily Rose, then you’re already vaguely familiar with the story of Anneliese Michel. But instead of being a work of horror fiction, Michel’s story is very real and very terrifying.

Watch Dread: The Unsolved’s Look At The Exorcism Of Anneliese Michel:

At the age of 22, she underwent 67 exorcisms under the supervision of her parents and a Catholic priest. The results were tragic, ending with her death due to malnutrition. She was previously diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy and had been treated for depression in a psychiatric facility.

Was she really possessed? Or was this a case of negligent homicide at the hands of her parents and the Church? Let us know on Twitter @DreadUnsolved or on Instagram @DreadTheUnsolved. I’m also on Facebook. You can your thoughts to TheUnsolved@DreadCentral.com.
