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
Horror mixed with courtroom drama and suspense. Truly the best horror film I've seen in a long time. Especially scary because it was based on a true story. The special effects were perfect in that they did not make it unbelievable. Jennifer Carpenter deserves an Oscar or at least an MTV movie award. If you're looking for a good scare this one belongs at the top of your queue.
Roger Ebert stick your thumb where it doesn't shine... This film is truly a work of art! With a good surround sound system, not only will the hairs on every inch of your body be at attention, but your soul if your unsaved will ponder. Fantastic acting, superb reliability on plot with nearly no special effects thus making the movie flame towards you like an exploding bomb... absolutely a well made, well plotted and well delivered movie. Plus, it's based from a real and certified event noted by the Roman Catholic Church. A "D"efinite watch!!!
I thought this was definitely mroe of a courtroom dram, but the suspense was great too! It was definitely a far cry from the original Exorcist, but how can you compete with that? Good movie, with a great line, and a lot of jumpy moments!
I was a mix of an ok Law and order episode, and an ok scary movie.They should have stuck to one of the two.The based on a true story made it a little bit better.That girl is a very good actress!
They should have spend way less time in the courtroom...like half the film.
I would agree w/ another reviewer here that this movie is primarily a courtroom drama 1st and a horor movie second. It isn't on par w/ WPB's 'The Exorcist' but it is one of the better movies dealing w/ the subject to come out in a long while. It's a movie that delivers enough food for thought w/out comprimising the lingering creepieness levels. I liked that the victim of possession in the film took a long time to come under full control of the entity(ies) so the audience is able to witness the prolonged downward spiral. Performances are strong. In Certain areas it delivers chills and revulsion effectively. Definitely worth the rent and if you have a decent Home Theater sysytem you'll be in for a treat.
this movie is scary i mean scary if you have seen no good scary movies lately this is the one to see i loved it it makes you jump and is creepy this is that one movie to watch if you and your girlfriend hang out she will be in your arms at mostly halfway through it kept me up half the night scared it was a good 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.
