Is the Valak Demon Real?
Last week the movie the Conjuring 2 debuted, in the movie it featured the demon Valak. But is the Valak demon real in the Conjuring 2? The demon Valak is real, however, it has never been depicted as a scary nun as seen in the movie the Conjuring 2. This aspect of the Demon Valak is completely fake, thanks Hollywood!
Who is the Real Valak Demon?
Historically the demon Valak takes the form of child and has wings. According to the book of Goetia the demon Valak also goes by the names Valax, Valu, Valic, Volac, ais the Great President of Hell and possesses 38 legions of demons. In the book of Goetia Valak. Valak appears as a child with Angel’s Wings, riding on a Two-headed Dragon.
His Office is to give True Answers of Hidden Treasures and to tell where Serpents may be seen. The which he will bring unto the Exorciser without any Force or Strength being by him employed. In the movie the Conjuring 2, there were a few scenes where a possessed child is seen running through the house in Amityville down to the basement, is this a manifestation of Valak? In any case, I found it interesting that the producers of the Conjuring 2 decided to use this demon in their plot and tie it back to the Amityville case.
