05:45children were going to try to break us
05:46up and he'd kill one of them or

05:51finally a decision was made bishop
05:53robert mckenna a friend of the priest
05:55who brought the warrants to the case of
05:57maurice ethereo decided a full solemn
06:00exorcism was the only chance to avoid a
06:03tragedy
06:04this is called the ritual romano which
06:07is the ultimate in the rights of
06:09exorcism where catholicism is concerned
06:12he prepared himself
06:14uh he went to the home
06:17and the exorcism would be the first ever
06:19recorded in videotape
06:21a tape that shows maurice's face
06:23changing from this
06:25to this
06:26as the bishop chanted to cast out the
06:29devil
06:32nancy theoria was present throughout the
06:35exorcism when they were doing
06:37the exorcism on him when he turned his
06:39head i saw his face change i saw the
06:41satanic look on his face
06:44[Music]
06:45as the video shows far more was about to
06:48change on therio's face than its
06:51expression as bishop mckenna chants
06:54theory of skin seems to bubble
06:56a deep crack has opened on his forehead
07:00you feel anything inside you i see
07:02characteristics of his face look like
07:05they're becoming all crinkled like burnt
07:07there's
07:08a split on the left side of the head
07:10which widens opens up
07:14the eyes he blinks three times which we
07:17consider an insult to the trinity
07:19the eyes look like a serpent how many
07:22are you
07:23all of a sudden his eyes rolled up in
07:25his head
07:26and he his head went down
07:28he collapsed and within a few minutes
07:31he came to
07:32the first thing he asked for was nancy
07:35his wife
07:36this exorcism took place on the day
07:38after easter 1985
07:40and for several years maurice theorios
07:43seemed to become normal again things
07:45seemed to be going good in fact he
07:47wasn't even as mean
07:49as he used to be he was he was easygoing
07:53he was easygoing and everything
07:54but about a year ago ed warren received
07:57an ominous call from nancy theriault and
08:00she said ed i have to speak with you
08:03and she said maurice
08:05is going back into his old ways again
08:08blood is coming out of his eyes
08:10he's doing things that he shouldn't be
08:12doing
08:13he's threatening people
08:15it was the beginning of the final tragic
08:17possession of maurice
08:20in a few months he would be dead
08:25we'll continue in a moment
08:27with the exorcism of maurice theriault
08:30an exorcism
08:32that went horribly wrong
08:35[Music]
08:42weeks and months after maurice theriault
08:45underwent his torturous exorcism
08:48by the so-called new age catholic bishop
08:50mckenna
08:51he seemed to be free of whatever demons
08:54possessed him
08:56but soon
08:57signs of evil began to surface once
08:59again
09:01leading to a chilling final chapter
09:05raphael abramovitz
09:07continues the exorcism of maurice
09:10therian
09:12over and over again the bishop said
09:14these words

09:18name of the lord jesus christ in the
09:20name of the blessed virgin
09:22how did you enter maurice
09:24[Music]
09:27for many years maurice therio was
09:29accused by some of using trickery to
09:31fake his spontaneous bleeding and other
09:34physical phenomena but in the exorcism
09:37conducted by bishop mckenna the camera
09:39captured images that nobody has been
09:42able to explain
09:44as his skin bubbled and a crack appeared
09:47on his left temple and his eyes took on
09:49the satanic gaze of a madman at least a
09:52dozen people were present to witness it
09:56when it was over his skin was clear
09:59maurice seemed like his former self and
10:01his wife's nightmare subsided for a time
10:04that horrifying look on his face
10:06disappears
10:08and he's back to being yeah the morris
