They Were Doing Spellwork In A Cemetery When A Demon Took OverPhoto: The Last Exorcism II / Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
After casting a Wiccan circle in a cemetery on Halloween, Redditor/u/chiefoftheworld believes they were taken over by a demonic entity. After casting the circle, his partner fell over on a black mirror, crushing it and bringing on something truly spooky. While trying to close the circle, something got into them and almost took over their bodies.
"The best way to describe it is like something is invading your space. It’s uncomfortable and it’s almost like it’s trying to shove you out of the way to make room. I literally felt like two different people, and the invader was trying to gain control."
After howling in the circle for a few minutes, the entity passed and they were free. They closed the circle and didn't mess with it again.

Redditor/u/Apple_sunday believes she was possessed by something she refers to as "the negative of a tall man" who smiled at her. He had a green aura and was trying to take over her body completely. She claims the possession began with sleep paralysis and the shadowy figure watching over her, and then she began to experience intense bouts of anger.
She slowly became angrier and angrier until she was having intense emotional outbursts and trying to physically fight her boyfriend. Everything came to a head one day while she and her boyfriend were driving home from the grocery store:
"On the drive home, I keep thinking 'there is something attached to me, something is in me, this isn't human, I need to tell him to help me'."
But she couldn't talk. Instead, all she could hear was something saying, "you wanted to see me... so here I am... look at me." She finally sought out help from her grandmother.

An anonymous woman alleges she inadvertently drew an incubus into her life. She was staying at a friend's house haunted by a ghost named Romoan, a soldier who died on the property during the French and Indian War. The woman and her friend had fun with Romoan, who she said was a "sexy ghost." On the day she went home, her friend asked if she wanted to take him home. She said okay, and that's when the trouble started.
She quickly realized Romoan was a demon and not a ghost. She claims she felt an "eerie evil presence" all around her and constantly had "bad feelings." Despite having multiple priests come out to help, she's never been able to escape this low-level possession.
