Exorcism in Russia

It might be all the horror movies I have been watching lately but this sound-file of a Russian exorcism in progress is creeping me out.

A sixteen-year-old girl sits in a chair in a Russian Orthodox Church. She is being held down by her mother. Light filters in from high windows and the air is thick with tension and the smell of holy incense. A priest stands over her reading the rite of exorcism. The girl squirms in her motherís arms, groaning and growling as if the priestís words were a torment to her mind and soul. The girl struggles violently, her groans becoming inhuman howls and deep, guttural moans of psychological pain. Then she lashes out at the priest, and in a voice that seems not to be her own, spits words of defiance.

I also listened to it... it was a little unnerving, sure... but mostly because we are told it's an exorcism. I'm no expert on exorcism or the workings of the spiritual realm, but that audio could be literally anything. A remastering of a screech owl in the woods, for instance (I know it's not a screech owl, but just for the sake of argument). Without the scary exorcism claim by the linkers, it just wouldn't have the same effect.
