Indiana officials are reporting an account of their own.
That's right...a child services caseworker, a nurse, a Catholic priest, and even a police captain all claim to be eyewitnesses of a real-life demon possession.
It began in November of 2011when the Ammons family (no, we don't mean the Addams family) moved into a rental house on Carolina Street in Gary, Indiana.
Things got spooky right away. There were swarms of flies, wet footprints and strange noises in the basement, among many other creepy things.
The 32-year old mother, Latoya Ammons, and all three of her children began to show signs of being possessed.
One terrifying night, Latoya and some visiting friends heard screams from the 12-year old daughter's room.
When they rushed in to investigate, the girl was levitating above her bed, unconscious.
Horrified, they began to pray and the girl eventually descended with no memory of the incident.
Unable to move out of the house (due to finances), the family called for help: the Catholic Church and some clairvoyants.
The clairvoyants said the house was haunted by more than 200 demons. The Catholic Church sent a priest to exorcise them. Indiana Child Protective Services were brought in.
Case manager, Valerie Washington, claims the youngest boy flashed her a 'weird grin" and then (apparently channeling his inner Michael Jackson) moon-walked backward up a wall to the ceiling. (btw, MJ was also from Gary, Indiana).
A nurse corroborated Washington's story. Gary police were called in to investigate.
After making several visits to the home and interviewing witnesses, some of the officers were too scared to stay at the house. Other city officials refused to step foot on the property.
Gary Police Captain Charles Austin said it was the "strangest story he had ever heard," and initially he thought it was an elaborate hoax to make money.
Not anymore. After going to the house himself and talking to those involved, Austin now says, "I am a believer."
Many of these events are detailed in nearly 800 pages of official records obtained by the Indianapolis Star newspaper and recounted in more than a dozen interviews with police, DCS personnel, psychologists, and the Catholic priest who performed the exorcism.
