The most frightening thing about The Exorcism of Emily Rose is how three Oscar-nominated actors were talked into working with Scott Dietrickson, writer-director of the direct-to-video Hellraiser: Inferno.
Inserting a dose of horror into a standard courtroom drama, writer-director Scott Derrickson and co-writer Paul Harris Boardman have constructed a well-cast yet dopey tale that is much less than the sum of its parts.
Aside from the occasional 'boo!' moment, the film lacks anything to stand nape hairs on end, and the trail -- which occupies a majority of the overlong 113 minute running length -- is unremarkable, despite some nice performances.
Creepy enough at first, this relatively gore-free film gradually becomes a stifling talk-fest in which superb actors drone on for so long about the nature of belief that one longs for a juror to spew a little pea soup.
