Disturbing footage has emerged online showing the moment that a "possessed" young woman appears to smile sinisterly after she is told she is dead during a bizarre exorcism session.
The "possessed" woman is shown at the beginning of the video holding a conversation in the Spanish language with a woman dressed in a white robe and wearing a long necklace.
The woman in white appears to be acting as a priestess or exorcist of a religious or spiritual cult, and the young woman is consulting her for solution to a spiritual problem.The young woman tells the exorcist that she is not "feeling the same." She tells the priestess repeatedly that she is "not the same," and asks, "Do you know why?"
The exorcist tells her she isn't feeling the same "because you are dead, because you are dead."
"And the baby," the exorcist adds.
"What baby?" the "possessed" woman asks.
The exorcist points at her belly, saying, "You are pregnant."
She says she does not know that she is pregnant.
The conversation continues in Spanish and the film cuts to a moment the priestess or exorcist appears to be saying prayers or incantations with her palm raised in the direction of the young woman.
The "possessed" woman twists her face and cries repeatedly, "he hears me, he hears me..."
The priestess responds, "He hears you, look at who you are..."
The video cuts once again to a scene in which the "possessed" woman is standing between two men in black shirts.
She then throws her body back on the bed behind her and appears to experience a violent fit. She thrashes about on the bed, with her legs flailing wildly. The men struggle to restrain her. The hold her down and struggle with her flailing limbs.
Prayers or incantations are chanted with candles burning around the bed.
The "possessed" woman bares her teeth in a chilling, evil-looking smile as the men struggle to restrain her. They hold her down on the bed as she struggles and shouts in apparent agony.
The men continue to hold her down on the bed as a prayer ritual is performed. The prayer appears to have a calming effect.
After expending a lot of energy, she calms down at last, and towards the end of the video, she is shown holding her throat, exhausted and visibly shaken.
The disturbing exorcism video comes after shocking footage emerged online last month showing what was claimed as a case of "mass demonic possession" at a school in Peru.
The footage (see video below) showed several children supposedly "possessed by the devil" convulsing and screaming.
Peruvian media reports said about 100 students, aged between 11 and 14, at the Elsa Perea Flores School in Tarapoto, northern Peru, were affected by an "epidemic of demon possession."Many of the victims said they saw visions of a "man in black" chasing them and trying to strangle them to death.
"It's disturbing for me to think about it," one of the schoolchildren said. "It's as if someone kept on chasing me from behind. It was a tall man all dressed in black and with a big beard and it felt like he was trying to strangle me. My friends say I was screaming desperately, but I don't remember much."
Another said she felt like she was held in strong hands and strangled. Her classmates, who assisted her during the attack, said she screamed repeatedly, saying, "Take it out."
"Several children from different classrooms fainted at the same time," another victim said. "I got nauseous and started vomiting. I heard voices. A man in black chased me and wanted to touch me."
Panicked parents rushed to the school and took their children to the hospital.
Experts dismissed claims that the children were "demon possessed." They said the incident was a case of "contagious mass hysteria."
But they were unable to explain what caused it.
"We don't understand how this has kept going on," a doctor told reporters. "We know it started on 29th April and now it is still happening. Now there are almost 80 pupils [affected]."
Some locals began spreading rumors that the incident was linked to the fact that the school was constructed over a graveyard that contained bodies of victims of torture and murder.
According to the rumors, construction workers had reported discovering a mass grave containing remains of people who were tortured and murdered by a local mafia.
"It is known that years ago there were many victims of terrorism here," a paranormal investigator told reporters. "When this school was built, some say bones and dead bodies were found."
