Exactly, most of the occurrences of "paranormal events" are only reported as such because the person was out looking for one.
Yeah i suppose you are right. Any little detail that happens you'll think was a reaction to the 'board' and, it would be exaggerated in a empty house, in the middle of nowhere. So, i suppose it all just is an exaggeration of the truth, tied in with the category of "paranormal."
Me and few mates on mine next saturday are going to a "haunted house" in Toowoomba here, a few months back the dad killed his two children, his wife, and then ultimately himself. Everything is boarded up, but it wouldn't be hard to get it.
Trying to find a shop that sells Ouija boards, or i could make one. Seeing as my mates are "spiritually curious" i suppose you could say.
Just curious, has anyone used one, and had sucess before?
People who don't know me or necessarily like me will more than likely give me hate mail *laughs* but if you knew me well enough you'd know i'm hear to voice my opinions, not to care about what your opinion of me is.
Nice to see some familiar people i used to talk quite a lot too.
Here we go, it came up on this separate link while i was looking up the movie:
The real Ed Gein did wear a human's scalp and face. The real Ed Gein did this however, to help quell his desire to be a woman, not because of a skin disease as with Leatherface in the film. Also included in his uniform, Ed Gein wore a vest of skin complete with breasts and female genitalia strapped above his own
Did the real Ed Gein use a chainsaw to kill his victims? No, both of Ed Gein's identified victims, Mary Hogan and Bernice Worden, were shot with a pistol. In November of 1957, police found Bernice Worden hanging from the rafters in a shed behind Gein's house. Her body had been gutted like that of a deer, and the head had been removed. Ed Gein was also the suspect in several other missing persons. The element of the chainsaw that was added for the film's story once again emphasizes the loose connection of the film to Gein. -carpenoctem.tv
Who exactly was Ed Gein and why did he commit such atrocities? Eddie Gein was the son of Augusta and George Gein. Augusta was a deeply religious woman, who preached the Bible to Eddie and his brother Henry on a daily basis. She warned them about the dangers of loose women, in an effort to keep them from being cast down to hell. She was a strict, hard woman, who never wavered from her own beliefs, which she ingrained into the family. Eddie's father, George, was an alcoholic, and Augusta viewed him as being worthless. She began a grocery business in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and when she had saved enough money she moved the family away from the sin of the city to a farm in Plainfield, Wisconsin. Eddie grew up shy and was ignored by the other kids at school, who saw him as quiet and feminine. If he did try to make friends, his mother scolded him. As a result Eddie turned inward and began to reside in the dark corners of his mind.
He worshipped his mother, and grew upset when his brother Henry criticized her. On May 16, 1944, while fighting a brush fire near the farm, Eddie and Henry split up and went in different directions. After the fire had been extinguished, Eddie grew concerned because his brother had not returned. When police arrived Eddie lead them directly to his "missing" brother Henry, who was lying dead in an area untouched by the fire with bruises on his head. The shy and seemingly harmless Eddie was quickly dismissed as a suspect, and the coroner listed asphyxiation as the cause of death. -crimelibrary.com
I'm not quite certain that there is some kind of supernatural force, but I think there is something that we have no control over, considering all the evidence for it (if you're in Australia, do the Port Arthur Ghost Tour in Tasmania, it's well worth it). Going by what I've heard and seen, I would say that there was definitely something weird going on with her, whether it was possession or such, I'm not quite sure, but definitely something weird.
Damn you make good thread Tieheria.
Aww thank you. Im from Norway and live in Australia too :O
Most of you have more than likely seen the movie 'Exorcism of Emily Rose" well it was based on a true story:
Who she was:
In 1968, when she was 17 and still in high school, Anneliese began to suffer from convulsions. Court findings have her experiencing her first epileptic attack in 1969. It was then that a neurologist at the Psychiatric Clinic Wurzburg diagnosed her with Grand Mal epilepsy. Soon, Anneliese started experiencing devilish hallucinations while praying. She also began to hear voices, which told her that she was damned. The court determined that by 1973 Anneliese was suffering from depression and considering suicide. In 1975, convinced that she was possessed, her parents gave up on the doctors from the psychiatric clinic. They chose to rely solely on the exorcisms for healing (washingtonpost.com). Anneliese's symptoms have since been compared with those of schizophrenia, and they may have responded to treatment (telegraph.co.uk).
Some things she did:
Anneliese carried out a number of highly disturbing actions. She licked her own urine off the floor. She ate flies, spiders, and coal. She bit off the head of a dead bird. In one instance, she crawled under a table and barked like a dog for two days. She could often be heard screaming through the walls for hours. Tearing off her clothes and urinating on the floor became a regular occurrence. -moviesonline.ca
How she died:
Yes. Anneliese (pictured right) endured 67 rites of exorcism over a period of 10 months. Over time, the ligaments in her knees ruptured due to the 600 genuflections that she performed obsessively during each exorcism session. A genuflection is an act of reverence consisting of falling onto one or both knees (called a "double genuflection"). On June 30, 1976, during her last rite of exorcism before her death, too weak and emaciated to perform the genuflections on her own, Anneliese's parents stood and helped carry her through the motions. -moviesonline.ca
UGers....... Do you believe she was possessed? If not, explaination?
