Avid fans of horror films, beware!
An exorcist priest from the Philippines said patronizing horror films or those that feature magic and witchcraft is “dangerous.” Father Ronnie E. Ablong of the Diocese of Dumaguete said this could lead to possible demonic possession.
In a Facebook post, the priest shared that he has been exorcising a young woman who was possessed by several demonic entities. Fr. Ablong also said that he already cast out almost 40 demons, including those with familiar names — Valak from the movie The Nun, Sylvia Ganush from the movie Drag Me to Hell, and Annabelle from the movie, Annabelle.
“I have been exorcising a young woman for many weeks now. Thirty-nine demons have already been cast out. Five of these demons come from the movies the demoniac had watched. The names of the demons are either the primary or secondary characters of these movies,” the priest wrote.
“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),” he added.
Fr. Ablong then issued this warning:”Please do not mention or pronounce their names because doing so will empower them or you will be harassed.”
The priest said the exorcism is still ongoing and that he just wants to warn the public that’s why he made the post.
“I’m making this post to warn everyone of the certain danger of patronizing horror films or films that deal with magic and witchcraft,” Fr. Ablong said.
To put everyone’s mind at ease and not to cause public panic, he explained that no one is possessed overnight.
“Possession is the result of opening a lot of doors to the devil,” he said. “These doors include occultism (divination, necromancy, magic, sorcery/witchcraft, etc.) and living a habitual life of mortal sin.”
