Anneliese Michel is the woman whom inspired the plots of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Requiem and Anneliese: The Exorcist Tapes, and they are all based on a true story (somewhat). Anneliese was a Catholic supposedly possessed by demons. She consequently underwent an exorcism, a practice casting out demons from a person whom is believed to be possessed. But was she really possessed? Today, many think that Anneliese Michel was not possessed by demons, rather she "possessed" mental disorders. Furthermore, the exorcism was bathed in negligence, abuse and religious extremism.

Have you ever wished to have had a twin? If so, wish granted. Some people believe in paranormal doubles called doppelgängers, German for "double walker". These doubles possess a bad seed; however. And this seed can easily grow into a bad apple that spoils the bunch, a.k.a. you. Doppelgängers represent misfortune and evil, so when you see yours, run. There are multiple cases of doppelgängers, most bizarre, recorded throughout history, and some of them may just shock you.
