Anneliese Michel (1952-1976) was a German Catholic woman who was said to be possessed by demons and subsequently underwent an exorcism. The case has been labelled by some as a misidentification of mental illness, negligence, abuse, and religious hysteria. The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Requiem, and Anneliese Michel: The Exorcist Tapes, are loosely based on Michel's story.
Sad... Anneliese Michel (September 21, 1952 – July 1, 1976) was a German Catholic girl who was “possessed by demons” and subsequently underwent an exorcism. Following the last exorcism and after warning her mother that she could take no more, Anneliese died in her sleep.
