My Encounter with Evil (2022) s01e03 Episode Script

Episode 3

Possessions are very rare cases.
It's not as easy as passing
by a cemetery and getting possessed.
[tense music playing]
[woman grunts hoarsely]
[Cristian] She must have had
a spiritual weakness
that allowed a negative energy
to affect her.
[speaks in Latin]
And if the person has spiritual, mental,
or emotional weaknesses in life,
then they are giving permission
for that energy
to take control of their mind and body.
[speaking in Latin]
The war between good and evil
is a reality.
We are in a constant war.
[dramatic opening theme music plays]
[Cristian] I fight against evil.
It's part of my spiritual work.
Some say we are warriors of the light.
The idea is
to expel and banish all negative energies
that affect people in their life.
One of the most shocking cases
was one of the first ones I saw,
because it had many physical signs.
The moment I put
an exorcised denarius on her wrist,
she started screaming
and saying that it was burning her.
And when I removed it,
I saw her skin was burned and scarred.
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed by thy name.
Logically, this alarmed me,
and it was
an unequivocal sign of possession.
There was another case in which the entity
wanted to harm a woman's children.
[man] Come on. Here she is.
Yes, here she is. Honey
[man] Honey, calm down.
Calm down. Calm down.
Calm down. Calm down!
[laughs, groans]
- [man] Please, calm down. Calm down.
- [screaming]
In the scripture, the Lord tells us
that the battle
is not against people of this world
but against powers, dominions
and spiritual principalities.
[woman speaks indistinctly
in distorted voice]
[eerie music playing]
I love Ismael very much. I respect him.
But I feel like he wasn't for her.
How dare you? Why?
Nobody ever took the time
to sit down and talk about this with us.
And simply ask us, "What's going on?"
[gurgles, sighs]
Everyone judged and criticized us,
called us crazy.
Have you ever considered the possibility
that the one who is possessed is you?
We're not crazy.
My name is Rubén Flores.
Radio host, from San Luis Potosí.
I met Sully, Jessy's mom,
ten years ago, on channel 7,
where I hosted a show.
My first impression of Sully
was that she was an easy-going person
and very unique.
Actually, you also might start to
have problems with your current partner.
Because you've been having
this issue for a long time.
I met Jessy when she was 15 years old.
Jessy always seemed
an intelligent and cheerful girl.
One day I came back from work.
Sully sent me a message
saying that Jessy was not okay.
That's what she said.
At that point, I thought she was just ill.
[woman on TV] As you fought
- You must help her.
- What do you think I'm doing?
I'm saying that maybe
you have to do it another way.
Something's blocking her healing.
I need your help.
- I'll help you.
- I need to do something about her.
[on TV] She was thrown into the abyss
with a hungry lion.
Hey! Hey, turn it down!
[on TV] This primitive and murderous enemy
of man has taken
What's wrong with you? Turn it down!
Turn it down, please!
[turns off TV]
- [slap thuds]
- [screams] Jessy!
- [both grunting]
- [Rubén] Jessy!
[eerie string music playing]
- [both grunting]
- Jessy!
Jessy's strength was
She was stronger than me.
I couldn't hold her.
Her voice, her look, it wasn't her.
[eerie music building]
Hate you! Hate you!
She grabbed me by the neck and said
[Jessy groans angrily]
[Sully choking]
You don't get it. You understand nothing.
We asked We asked the name
of what was inside Jessy.
It told us.
I don't remember the name,
and I don't even want to remember.
I am Asmodeus.
I'm not alone.
- [gasping]
- [Rubén and Jessy struggling]
It said, "I am Asmodeus."
[gasping, shuddering]
Everyone thought
my mom was making me act this way.
Everyone said it was because
she wasn't letting me be an adolescent.
They said, "Leave her alone!"
Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop, I know.
[dog barking]
[Jessy screaming]
Stop, stop, stop.
If I had a daughter and saw all that,
I'd also try to help her
the way that my mom helped me.
- [dog barking]
- [Jessy screaming]
[Sully] Easy, easy.
[Jessy screams]
Sometimes we watch horror movies
with green vomit and stuff like that,
but reality is way more frightening
than the movies.
When this happens,
when Jessica begins attacking me,
and begins hurting me,
I felt that it was already out of control.
I couldn't help her anymore.
At that moment,
I asked for help to get her released.
I found someone
who had the power to do that.
My name is Ariel. I was part
of the charismatic Catholic group.
That's how I met Jessica.
What brought me to Jesus Army
was the idea of salvation.
The idea of feeling at peace.
Jessy joined us
and was a bit invisible at first.
She didn't participate much.
I feel like she had
a taste for loneliness.
I remember the day they arrived very well.
[doorbell rings]
[Jessy breathing heavily]
- [priest 1] How are you, ma'am?
- Welcome.
- [priest 1] Thank you.
- [priest 2] How are you?
- Mom.
- [ominous music playing]
- What are you doing, Mom?
- [Sully] It's for your own good.
[Jessy] Mom! Mom! Mom!
- [Jessy screams]
- [Sully breathing heavily]
The exercises and prayers
that are part of the liberation
were taught to us by the fathers.
They also taught us how to perform it,
start to finish.
- [tense music playing]
- [priest 1] Ma'am.
Ma'am, come here.
- [boy] I want to thank you.
- [boys] I want to thank you.
- [boy] Thank you for saving me.
- [boys] Thank you for saving me.
[boy] I want to thank you.
He asked me to make them dinner.
I was like, "Hey, are you here
to see my daughter or have dinner?"
- [boy] I want to thank you.
- [boys] I want to thank you.
- [boy] Thank you for saving me.
- [boys] Thank you for saving me.
We started with the liberation.
We gathered around.
With Jessy in the middle.
[Jessy] "Thank you for saving me"?
"With open arms, my Lord."
[breathing heavily]
- [boy] Our Father, who art in heaven.
- Shut up!
- Shut up!
- [boys] Our Father, who art in heaven.
Stop! Stop!
Some guys began to pray.
Trying to help.
Some were praying with the rosary.
[Jessy laughs]
I was dead inside,
and you breathed into me.
It's useless, useless. Shut up!
[boy] With open arms With open arms
[boys] Thank you for saving me.
[Jessy shrieking]
- [boys] Our father, who art in heaven
- [Jessy] Shut up!
- hallowed be they name.
- [Jessy] Leave me alone!
She was screaming,
mocking, being aggressive.
- [boys] I want to thank you!
- [Jessy] Shut up!
[tense music playing]
[boys] Thank you for saving me, Lord.
[eerie music playing]
[ghostly voice in Spanish]
I was dead inside,
and you breathed into me.
That's when I started
going to these places,
the rooms, to this mansion.
The smell of sulfur
There are several rooms
with barely any light.
You can hear things coming from the rooms.
And in those rooms, if you killed someone,
your hell will be repeating that,
again and again.
[people screaming]
That's what you could hear,
heartbreaking cries and screams.
[people sobbing]
[dramatic sting]
[eerie music playing]
[Jessy] Let me go! No! Let me go!
Perhaps hell is
not like what everyone thinks.
- [Sully gasps]
- [dramatic sting]
At some point, it was shocking.
And suddenly, Jessy was okay.
She went from moving and fighting
to being completely calm.
- You waited for me.
- You waited for me.
- But I ran away.
- But I ran away.
- Because I was scared
- Because I was scared
that you betrayed me.
There's when one of our crew
started feeling unwell.
The entity was no longer with Jessy.
It was in this other guy,
a member of our crew.
It spun out of control.
We didn't know what to do,
how to react to that.
[Sully sobbing]
Jessy looked me in the eye.
And she said,
"Make it stop."
[gentle piano music playing]
"I don't want this anymore."
"You should leave me alone."
It was very painful for me.
Then she passed out.
I think we live in
a society where we've been taught
that things are always either good or bad.
That there's something
we should be afraid of.
If you don't behave well,
bad guys will come for you.
If you're not a good person,
then you're gonna go to hell.
I personally think that
we live with our own demons.
We are our own demons.
Asmodeus is a very ancient demon.
He is one of hell's court princes.
He is a demon that has
several demons who serve him.
And he has an organization
in which he shows up
for various rituals and satanic pacts.
I want to thank you for saving me, Lord.
He likes to corrupt humanity
in different areas.
- [Jessy] I hate you!
- [gasps]
He's very attached
to the pleasures of the flesh
and basic pleasures.
The people who have been possessed by him
are physically consumed.
Because he's like a parasite.
He feeds on their energy
until they're destroyed.
[eerie music playing]
[man] This is where I get really scared.
Because the fabric of fiction is torn.
The words that scare us,
"based on true events,"
are actually present here.
[woman] There will be people who believe
and those who won't.
There will be those
who see Satan as a metaphor.
But I'm here to talk about the real Satan.
Not as a metaphor, but as something real.
[sinister sting]
In his diary,
Father Basilio documented
everything that happened
according to my uncle, his friends
[screams in Spanish] Help me!
and what my mom told him.
My sister is possessed.
[grunting loudly]
Father Basilio is an exorcist priest
named by the Holy See,
which is the Vatican.
Father decided to do
liberation prayers with her,
which are small exorcist prayers.
What's happening to me, Óscar?
What do you remember?
It's not clear, like a fog.
You were in the hospital.
Do you remember?
But I don't know why.
is inside you.
You stopped being yourself.
For some reason, you were vulnerable and
you let it in.
The enemy.
It can't be.
It can't be, Óscar.
The devil is inside you, Concepción.
He wants to take over.
He's winning now.
We have to expel him.
Don't be afraid.
We'll do whatever it takes to do this.
Father went inside with me.
He told me that I probably
had a burden from a demon.
He said to me, "Be calm."
"We'll be here for you."
"Stay calm."
[Concepción groans]
[breathing rapidly]
[groaning angrily]
[breathing rapidly]
[groans in pain]
[grunts, sighs]
He explained that my mother
began to have different behaviors.
She had always been a kind person.
And during these episodes,
my mother had changes in her physiognomy.
She started acting weird.
Her eyes changed.
When I was getting some sleep,
I said, "Father,
there's someone sitting next to me."
"There's another person."
[ethereal music playing]
[music fades]
I saw him.
He asked, "Who's the person next to you?"
I said, "He's dressed in white
and wearing sandals."
It was an angel.
The devil can take many forms.
[ominous music playing]
He might try to fool you.
Father immediately took
the crucifix and the rosary.
[priest reciting in Latin]
[Concepción] Father, please.
[grunting angrily]
- [groaning]
- [priest continues reciting]
[eerie music building]
[Concepción screams]
The demons disguise themselves as saints,
even the scripture says so.
The angels of darkness can
disguise themselves as angels of light.
I've seen possessed people
have visions of God,
of Jesus, of the virgin,
even angels.
Very dark entities that try to seduce you.
It's something that can happen.
Father Basilio saw
that my mother was possessed.
When he prayed in Latin
he realized that my mom had a demon.
The strength to fight the enemy
comes from praying.
[speaking in Latin]
[tense music playing]
[Óscar shuddering]
[continues speaking in Latin]
I can't.
I can't keep seeing her like this.
We have to get her out of here.
There's no time to waste.
[gasps, shudders]
We must go on.
Telling this story is very difficult.
It really was a horrible experience.
It's possible that women are more
susceptible to these kinds of experiences
in which a demon is possessing them,
or they find themselves taken over.
The reason for this
may be due to the fact that women
have always been more exposed
to all kinds of violence.
Especially in very early stages
of our lives.
It may be women
who are exposed to sexual violence,
or perhaps even domestic violence,
and feel as if
they have no control in their own lives.
This is because of the cultural roles
that we follow.
In demonic possessions,
we begin a process
where the family intervenes.
We start with several treatments,
where we defend, we cleanse,
and we strengthen
the spirit of the person.
[priest reciting in Latin]
This is so we can begin the exorcism.
[Florencia] Did you move the chair?
[somber music playing]
The girls no longer
lived in that apartment.
Florencia stayed there
for about 15 more days.
Antonio called, he was very supportive,
and he helped us
in the process of leaving.
I told Florencia not to leave that easily.
I told her to get some grain salt
to put in the corners of all the doors.
We are going to do an occult ritual
to block this being.
Because it is bonding with Emma.
When you finally remove the stuff
[Florencia] Yes.
leave your cell phone
so I can see the room.
I'll perform a ritual.
Spirit who wanders in this place and time,
I demand silence and rest in this place.
Stay in peace.
[Antonio speaking in Latin]
[continues speaking in Latin]
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed by thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
on Earth as it is in heaven.
It smelled as if
something was rotting in there.
You have disturbed these people
who leave because of your behavior.
[Antonia speaking in Latin]
This paranormal situation affected us.
Especially because Pablo
was always in a bad mood at night.
I started to feel tired.
As if something was taking my energy.
We had small fights
that became big for no reason.
We ended up really angry at each other.
The moment I couldn't take it anymore
was when we were both attacked
at the same time.
Did you move the chair?
- We can't go on like this.
- Just wait.
We just did the ritual. It's fine.
- It won't let us go on.
- What?
- What else can we do?
- I want to leave.
Again with that.
"I want to leave. I want to go."
Where are we going?
I want to leave this house
with my mother and my girls.
"My girls"?
You're tired of me?
You're pregnant with my child!
Do you think this is a fucking game?
Sounds like a game to you.
Don't you get it?
- Don't you realize what's going on here?
- Of course I do.
- [slams]
- [dramatic sting]
[Florencia breathing heavily]
[eerie music playing]
No, no, wait, wait. Don't go! Wait.
[fire crackling]
[people wailing, groaning]
[people screaming]
[unsettling music playing]
[Florencia breathing heavily]
Suddenly, I was bleeding.
I went to the hospital.
They said my colon was swollen.
The baby was in danger.
And they were like,
"We don't hear the baby's heartbeat."
"But your cervix is closed,
so let's be safe."
They gave me pills.
The Baku demon
likes sacrifices.
And he asks for many sacrifices.
When people don't give him sacrifices,
they have to pay with their body,
with their blood, with their energy,
in order to feed this demon.
I don't remember the exact moment.
I was alone.
- [lock clicks]
- [TV playing faintly]
[woman on TV] Just as you fought
the leader of the proud angels
Lucifer and his apostate host,
who had no power to resist you,
and there was no longer
a place for them in heaven.
That cruel ancient serpent,
called the devil or Satan
who seduces the whole world,
was thrown into the abyss
together with his angels.
Look, this primitive
and murderous enemy
of man has gained strength.
- [glass shatters]
- [ominous music playing]
[in Spanish] My girl!
[in English] This is when Father said
that it had to be a big exorcism,
following the Roman rituals exactly.
[ominous music playing]
Let's go now.
[Concepción] No.
I don't want to.
No, I don't want to. Óscar, please.
- I don't wanna go. I don't wanna go.
- Please be careful.
[Concepción] Please, I don't wanna go.
I thought it was over.
You go out.
And you say, "Thank God it's over."
[ominous music playing]
[Ivanna] What does it say?
That if we keep obeying Grandma,
things will get worse.
[objects thudding]
[Ivanna] What does it want?
[thudding continues]
[scraping floor]
[Florencia shuddering]
[thudding continues]
[wind whistling]
- [eerie music playing]
- [gasping in pain]
- [cracks]
- Jessy!
I had a deep connection with Asmodeus.
He was my protector
and the one who had been there.
Even though I'm a woman,
I overpowered them all.
[all grunting]
She had a greatly
altered physical transformation.
We have to go back
to the evil apartment with Mom.
They always called it "the evil apartment,
the evil apartment, the evil apartment."
Then they started talking about
that they had to go back there.
[gasping in pain]
Don't worry. She's mine now.
Stop it, Asmodeus! Leave her alone!
Let her go!
What do you want? Let her go!
What do you want?
What do you want?
Ask for anything you want. I'll do it.
Ask what you want.
Ask for anything you want. I will do it.
I will do it.
I will do it.
I will do anything.
- Anything.
- [cracks]
I'll do it.
[dramatic music building]
He stares at me and says,
"Pick your words very carefully."
And I said,
"I don't give a damn what it takes."
"Tell me what do you want me to do
because I'm fed up."
"I can't handle it anymore."
He took my wrists.
I remember that very well.
He stared at me and he said,
"I am Asmodeus. I am her protector."
"I protect and guide her."
Wow. He's here.
I felt shivers.
He said, "I take care of your daughter."
"And I am her protector."
[man] Is he here right now
because we used his name?
Yeah, actually, I'm not feeling well.
Do you think we can stop for a while?
[man] Of course.
[breathing deeply]
[suspenseful music building]
When we left the house,
the car was parked in front.
- [growling]
- [men straining]
What did you do to my sister?
- Who are you?
- [cackling]
In his writings, in his diary,
Father wrote a note
on how the demon pronounced its name.
We're leaving.
Come on, drive. Drive!
[man] Does Asmodeus want to share
anything with us?
[chuckles softly]
Um he can.
[sinister music playing]
She searched for me since she was a girl.
I never searched for her.
She was very curious and found me.
Something makes her special,
so she is a part of us.
Someone here has a question.
[eerie string music playing]
That was the time
when Jessy and I
decided to look for a satanist.
[dramatic sting]
[unsettling closing theme music plays]
