In this blend of psychological thriller and courtroom drama, Emily Rose (Jennifer Carpenter) is a 19-year-old college student who begins displaying bizarre and troubling behavior; as her actions become increasingly destructive and shocking, Emily begins speaking in strange tongues and destroying religious symbols that surround her. Emily's parents believe that their daughter has become possessed of the devil, and the Catholic Church agrees to authorize an exorcism of the young woman. As Father Moore (Tom Wilkinson) attempts to drive the demons from Emily's body, the girl dies in the midst of the taxing ceremonies, and Father Moore finds himself charged with negligent homicide. Attorney Erin Bruner (Laura Linney) is hired to represent Father Moore against prosecutor Ethan Thomas (Campbell Scott), who intends to prove there were concrete medical explanations for Emily's behaviors, including epilepsy and schizophrenia, all leading to a heated courtroom debate between the notions of faith and science. The Exorcism of Emily Rose was inspired by the real-life story of Anneliese Michel, a young woman from Germany who died in 1976 after priests in Wurzburg spent eight months attempting to exorcise demons from her body. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
I didn't know at all what to expect when I rented this movie. It seemed too scary at first but since it's based on a true story I wanted to watch it anyway.
It's a good movie. It was done in a very proffesional manner, and it is important to watch movies like that from time to time. movies that makes you think a little.
Well done movie. This is a courtroom drama of events and isn't an exorcism focused movie. Although I did get chills watching it even though I'm not religious. Worth seeing if you want a drama. Did move slow at times though.
I had never heard of this incident until I watched the movie. Now I have looked up alot of information on this girl. The movie was better than I expected. The drama in the courtroom was outstanding. I highly recommend this movie is you can stand a few scary scenes.
If you are going to use the original Exorcist as your bench mark movie, you will come up short with this interesting film. The movie relies on story telling, an art form that is slowly being lost to more and more over dosed CGI films. There are some holes in the telling, but all-in-all the film holds water. Just think you might have been unlucky and rented Animal
Nothing bad to say at all about this movie; every aspect was well done, including screenplay, acting, direction, music. It took only about 5 minutes to get into the beef of the movie, and it just kept moving, right until the end. Suspense-filled; creepy; with a positive ending. Not dependent on CGI effects; the acting carries the movie. Not overly complex; the plot can be understood in one sitting, but you will want to watch it twice for the entertainment value. Hollywood needs more like this, and less racial, rap-focused teenage crap. An intelligent movie.

Worth watching. Not amazing by any means, and obviously I'm not going to go down the Exorcist comparison road, but Emily Rose was a decent Law and Order episode wrapped in an Exorcism story that presented itself in a way that you could actually find yourself believing for a few minutes if you so desire. The special effects left a bit to be desired, but there are so few of them and they weren't terrible enough to detract from the movie as a whole.
