Critic Reviews for The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Very scary stuff. And as a courtroom drama, very effective.
There's no green vomit and nobody's head ever rotates a full 360; we stay in the natural world and never enter a movie world, and that makes the movie a lot better.
This is a horror movie, for once, which really wants us to use our heads.
As courtroom drama, The Exorcism of Emily Rose works effectively; as a scarefest, it misses the mark. But the performances stick with you, particularly that of Linney, who has an elegant steeliness.
Audience Reviews for The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Wilkinson and Linney's dynamic performances are the reason to see this melodramatic if typical exorcism piece, he as the anxious priest attempting to fit medieval beliefs into skeptical modern times and she as the atheist legal eagle he needs most to convince. Not boring.
Don't really remember seeing this, that might say alot about the quality of the film. I do remember that the possessed scenes weren't that cheesy, so that's a positive at least.
Second best exorcism flick ever made! In the first place, of course, you'll find the 1973 cult phenomenon The Exorcist. What may be interesting to know though is that there's a true story behind this, that also became the inspiration for said classic. It is by many believed to be genuine, and as someone with personal experience of the supernatural, I have to admit that I'm a believer as well. Anyway, aside from the real-life mysteries upon which it is founded, this is a horror film that really hits the mark. Jennifer Carpenter is exceptionally convincing and there's creepiness in the plenty that will have your nerves working overtime. Expect your electrical bill to go up a tad, if you catch my drift. Because this is one movie you don't wanna be watching alone in a dark room. That's what I did, and I'm deeply regretting it now.
