The Exorcism of Anna Ecklund

Synopsis: In this terrifying true story, something beyond comprehension is happening to housewife Anna Ecklund. Once a mild mannered churchgoer, she is now prone to bouts of violent rage with a particular anger toward religious imagery. Desperate to find a cure for Anna's disturbing behavior, her husband calls on doctors and psychiatrists to provide a diagnosis. But when no rational explanation can be found, local priest Father Riesinger teams up with Vatican investigator Father Lamont to evaluate the case. Realising that Anna is inhabited by a malevolent entity, the priests take her to a nearby Convent to perform an Exorcism. But all hell breaks loose and a brutal battle between good and evil begins.

Lord Jesus Christ,

you said unto your apostles,

"I leave you in peace.

My peace I give to you. "

Look not upon your sins

but on the faith of your church,

and grant us the peace and unity

of your kingdom,

where you live forever and ever.

- The peace of the Lord be with you always.

- And also with you.

This is the Lamb of God

who takes away the sins of the world.

Happy are they

who are called to his supper.

Hello, Jacob.


Thank you for coming.

Hey, I haven't seen you in church

just recently. How are you?

Not good, Father. Not good.

Hm. You're very pale. Are you ill?

I'm not the one who's sick, Father.

It's Anna.

Richard, is there something troubling you?

No, no. I'm prepared for the next trip.

Very well.

You're leaving tomorrow. That will be all.


- Oh, Richard, Richard.

- Ah, wonderful to see you, Theo.

And you. Come, sit down.

- It's been a while.

- Mm, yes, it has.

I see you've started early.

Oh, well... my faith is strong,

my will is weak.

So, what's the background to the case?

A woman, Anna Ecklund,

she has been exorcised previously.

- Really?

- Yes.

That's why I contacted the Vatican

to ask for your assistance.

You see, it's said that...

when the demon returns,

its strength is seven-fold.

Were you involved in the first exorcism?

Oh, yes. I... I've known Anna

since she was a child.

She came

from a good church-going family.

But, at age 14, she showed

symptoms of possession.

- The symptoms have returned.

- How old is she now?


Something on your mind?

Perhaps we should

just discuss business, Theo. I...

I don't want to burden you

with my personal issues.

Don't be silly.

Richard, it's me.

I think I've lost my faith.

I think all priests have doubts

at... at some point.

I was in Ireland recently

on an assignment...

and the locals, that day...

they responded so positively

to a statue weeping tears of blood.

And all I wanted to do...

I just wanted to be one

of those people, you know.

Floating on that cloud of absolute faith.

But instead, I just barged

my way through the crowd,

determined to prove

that the statue was not divine.

But you're an investigator. It's your duty

to consider all possibilities.

What I saw, Theo...

Those tears were real.


Doesn't that reinforce your faith?

No. It just- It just brought it all

back home to me. I...

I've strayed from God.

Do you, uh...

Do you want to take this case or not?

I'm too weak.


You're much stronger

than you think you are.

I have to be honest, Richard.

Knowing what you're gonna have

to face while you're here...

you're gonna need all the strength

that you can muster.

Why did you bring her to a convent?

What better place to fight evil

than in a house of God?

When Anna first arrived,

we would bring her food

that had been blessed,

and she would react very violently.

When we stopped blessing

the food, she ate it.

I see. Is there any way Anna

could have known of this practice?

We never did it in front of her.

There's no way she'd have known

the food had been blessed.

But it's a fairly safe assumption,

given where we are,

don't you think, Theo?


Here we are.

Do you mind if I speak with her alone?

Well, uh... of course.

We'll wait out here.

Thank you.

- Anna?

- The slut is in here with us.

- "Us"?

- Yes. For we are many.

Have you been reading the Bible, Anna?

Perhaps you should read your bible.


Why is that?

- You speak Latin?

- I speak for many.


Satan is now among us.

Repeat that.

Temptation can always be repeated.
