"The film finds a way to justify its existence despite the inevitable comparisons to ["The Exorcist"], in whose shadow it will inevtiably stand..."
September 21, 2007
It avoids gratuitous gore and the shocks that provide the backbone of most horror films. ... [Derrickson's] more interested in the spiritual questions at hand.

By modern standards the gore is minimal and most of the thrills come from production craftsmanship. It does not make this a classic, but it is a decent and even compelling horror film.

Fortunately (or not, depending on how big a Law & Order fan you are), [the movie] dwells less on the possession itself than on the subsequent trial.

Don't be surprised if you wake up at 3am after you've seen The Exorcism of Emily Rose. I did, and there are enough frightening moments to make even the calmest people jumpy.

"Scarier than The Exorcist. A commendable, creepy and first-rate film experience. Try going straight to sleep after this baby".
