Professional Exorcist: Horror Movies Can Give You Demons

Next time you’re watching your favorite horror movie on Netflix, you might want to check for demonic possession afterwards.

According to Father Ronnie E. Ablong of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dumaguete in the Philippines, he’s had to remove at least 39 demons so far (and counting) from a young woman after she watched a number of popular horror films. He outlined it all in a Facebook post on March 1, 2021:

“First, VALAK, from the movie THE NUN (2018). Second, ESME (CULLEN), from the movie TWILIGHT (2008). Third, SYLVIA GANUSH, from the movie DRAG ME TO HELL(2009). Fourth, DIANA WALTER, from the movie LIGHTS OUT (2016). And fifth, ANNABELLE, from the movie, ANNABELLE (2019).

Warning: PLEASE do not mention or pronounce their names because doing so will empower them or you will be harassed.”

Ablong said the exorcism is “ongoing,” but felt the need to warn others of the “certain danger” posed by horror movies, or other movies that deal “with magic and witchcraft.” He also said the names of the demons possessing the young woman were “either the primary or secondary characters” of the movies she watched.

Imagine going to see Twilight and leaving the theater with a case of demonic possession. As if it weren’t bad enough.

I’ve only sat through one of those, and the only thing I remember is that all the werewolf characters were shirtless. And that just reminded me of Shirts from The Sasquatch Gang.

It’s a bit goofy, but if you liked Napoleon Dynamite, check it out. Carl Weathers plays a Bigfoot hunter, and I’m about 90% sure it won’t give you demons.
