{MANIC MONDAY} Vintage “20/20” – “The Exorcism” circa 1991. REAL LIFE EXORCISM.

We wanted to start right out with the juice on this one, and take us straight into Part 2 of this disturbing segment from 20/20 back over 20 years ago. “The Exorcism” was the very first time the controversial rites of exorcism had ever been documented and aired on network television causing quite the stir.

20 years later the footage is as raw and disturbing as ever. Definitely beats the crap out of the Horror they try to feed you today. This kind of evil only exists in the twisted realms of our own reality.

Forget what you’ve seen – real life is always better {scarier}.

Question is: What do you believe?

Could the young 16 year old girl seriously be possessed by evil souls living deep in her body, or is this a battle of her rebellious teenage subconscious? This timeless battle between science and religion is carefully crafted by ABC correspondent Tom Jarriell with vintage appearances by the show’s anchors Hugh Downs, and the always stylin’ Barbara Walters.

Thanks to videoholics90s for the fantastically freaky clip! We’ll need to get our head back on straight after that, is for sure! Link from Youtube for the rest. Hope you enjoy!

 

Until we meet again,

Don’t be Deceived! Devils Wake, Walk, and Bite (too) !!! {Open 24 Hours}

Was this man genuinely exorcising wayward evil spirits from this young woman in the Philippines, or is this an elaborate missionary hoax? This photograph was taken from a souvenir pictorial to the film “Bitten by Devils” produced by the ordained Evangelist minister, Lester Sumrall.

Lester was born in New Orleans on February 5, 1913, and after winning a battle with tuberculosis, he was sure of his true calling. Sumrall was continuing in the traditions of his mentors Smith Wigglesworth, and Alfred Howard Carter– both prominent pioneering heroes of the Pentecostal faith who served as mentor to the young Southerner with loads of charisma.

The boy knew how to talk, and was well versed in the Gospels. He embodied a passion unseen by most people. But above all, Lester had a sense of style. His New Orleans upbringing would teach him to add a little flair, and embrace the power of tailoring, and the finest suits. Throw in some slick hair, and you’re bound to create a following. And indeed, he would.

In the 1950s, Sumrall had travelled to the Philippines to search for demons trapped in the body of a young woman. Lucky enough, they would find a “comely Visayan maiden whose experiences in prison triggered medico-religious investigations and front-page news.”

As you can see from the list of books above, Lester’s fascination with the dark side would be a priority for most of his life. Whether true or false, many of Sumrall’s stories are terrifying to this day.  “The Invisible Boy” tells of a young Filipino boy tormented by ‘alien entities’.

Cornelio and a friend were walking home one afternoon cutting across a large open space. Suddenly Cornelio stopped. His eyes were bulging out of their sockets. He was pointing ahead. He said: ‘See the girl in a long white dress? She is beautiful. She is calling me’. Cornelio left his friend and walked forward. Suddenly his friend saw Cornelio disappear from sight.

Creepy stuff, alright.

It makes you wonder why someone (an ordained minister) would make something like this up. There is a long history of church inaccuracies when it comes to the documentation of fact from fiction, so naturally we resist. But in all actuality, perhaps the young boy from New Orleans really was on to something.

Lester Sumrall would take his mission one step further forming The Lester Sumrall Evangelical Association {LeSEA} in 1957.  By 1968 LeSEA would launch WHME-TV, followed by WHMB-TV serving the Southern United States as the first 24-hour Christian television station. With all his showbiz charm and charisma, it is not surprising.

However, the question remains… Do You believe in The Devil? or Demons? Spirits? Ghosts? Were the stories he wrote about and portrayed in films actually real? Can they attack and make us disappear into thin air? Lester Sumrall sure thought so, and made an entire life exploring the unknown.

Don’t be deceived! Perhaps this calls for some reading of our good friend Ralph Hart. Or should I say, Reverend. Seems like he has some advice on the subject. All you need to do is ask yourself one thing:

Library books are fun. Found this one tucked away in that dusty corner. Why would that be?

Hope you enjoyed!

Satanic Possession in Archie Comics – Sabrina the Teenage Exorcist!

We are always in a nostalgic mood when it comes to our evening reading. Infact, we love delving into a quant story from Riverdale!  Homeland of our favourite group of teenagers, the Archie’s and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, along with Josie and the Pussycat and so many other fictitious characters.  Now …what would it take to bring us a story of true captivity.. and wonder?? Perhaps it would add some excitement with the addition of The Devil.
Well perhaps is no true reason as to why, but why on earth would a children’s publishing company come up with a plot line involving satanic possession?? Naturally, the Exorcist made QUITE the splash upon it’s release at the time.  We reckon the Comic publishing company only meant to make thing’s a little more exciting.  And we say.. it worked!  With plot-lines normally consisting of ‘what to wear to the beach’ or ‘who wants to meet for a sundae’, we here at The Eye of Faith are very entertained by a tale of an Evil Cameo Pendant which carries a Evil Curse.  Big Up’ to one of our FAVOURITE retro sources online RetroSpace for posting this amazing story.

We have to admit our genuine amusement as we read this comic.  We hope you guys get a kick too!! Even if this was all done to get some of the Exorcist’s hype, we say kudo’s… kudo’s to teaching kids the importance of the Bible and expelling any evil within.

Demonic Flight Attendant caught on Video.


Incase you haven’t seen it yet, we have the clip! On a plane leaving Dallas heading toward Chicago, just after it took off, a Flight attendant got hold of the plans public address system and began to ‘rant’. With talks of crashing, 911, and any airplane issue you could think of, it took some time before passengers on the plane were FREAKED enough to restrain the woman. But not before she would let out what can only be described as a Demonic Voice.

What happened to this woman? Was she angry with the pilot… did someone say something to her to piss her off?  Was she really possessed?? So many questions remain, but one thing is clear… this is not normal!  The plane was turned around and the flight attendant was taken to a hospital.  Perhaps for a exorcism.

“Get off the plaaaaaaaaaaane!”
