A possession thriller...that replaces Christian claptrap for Hindi hokum.

Conveys a sense of despair I haven't discovered in most other horror films

Audience Reviews for Audrey Rose


Slightly more realistic version of Exorcist sans the scares. It's very understandable that this was ignored by horror fans.

If you took The Exorcist's aesthetic, but inserted terrible performances, and swapped out thorough religious themes for half baked ideas about reincarnation.... you could probably still make a better movie than Audrey Rose. Robert Wise was no stranger to vacuous, overly sentimental storytelling (see: The Sound of Music) but he really outdid himself here. That's not to say he didn't have talent (after all, he made The Day The Earth Stood Still, which, for my money is one of the best sci-fi films ever made) but his direction in this film is choppy and even downright questionable in some scenes. Not even a younger, spry Anthony Hopkins can save this cheap imitation from itself.

Interesting semi-horror film which see's a grieving father stalking an 11 year-old girl who he believes to be the reincarnation of his dead daughter. Has a few similarities with 'The Exorcist' but with a Hinduism theme rather than christian. Well acted and quite thought-provoking. Worth a watch.
