The Mysterious Exorcism of Robbie Mannheim

What lurks behind the thin veneer of what we know as reality? Are there powerful entities that harbor the potent desire to inhabit our bodies and our minds?

2015: Arkansas Republican Who Gave Girls to Rapist ‘Regularly’ Performed Exorcisms on Unruly Preschoolers

A former teacher of Justin Harris’ school spoke about bizarre rituals performed on students. The Arkansas Republican who gave his adopted daughters to a man who raped one of them was apparently in the habit of attempting to cast “demons” out of the children in his federally-funded pre-kindergarten.

2011: The Ammons Family Poltergeist

Sometime in November of 2011, Latoya Ammons and her children moved into the small, unassumingly quaint house that sat on Carolina Street in Gary, Indiana. Within a short period of having moved in, Latoya began to feel that something strange was also in the house with them. Clunking footsteps around her house at nights. A shadowy figure pacing around their living room and ghastly swarms of flies that appeared in the dead of winter. There were also reports of mysterious and sudden bouts of rage that seemed to momentarily take control of her children, making them hurt each other. All of these unexplained occurrences brought an unknown terror to the single mother of three. However, when one of her children levitated off the bed in front of their eyes, the Ammon family knew that what they were dealing with was way beyond their control and frightfully real. The story […] Read More

Need something to get her to notice you when flowers don’t work? Want to drive out an evil spirit or domineering boss? Suffering from black jaundice?

The text is written on parchment and bound in a folded format known as a codex. The first part of the text consists of prayers to well-known religious names like Jesus and David as well as to […] Read More
