Movie Info

Fifteen-year-old Emma Evans (Sophie Vavasseur) is like any other teenage girl; she thinks that her parents dont understand her. She longs for independence and a life free of family ties and responsibilities and she is prepared to do anything to achieve it. But one day she will be forced to face up to the consequences of her actions. Life seems to be carrying on as normal, until one day Emma starts experiencing frightening fits. Her parents are convinced that her problems are either medical or psychological, but when doctors tests are unable to draw any conclusions, the family is forced to look elsewhere for answers. It all started off as a bit of fun, Emma never really believed it, but the truth is there is something dark and sinister within her, and it wont take long to surface. -- (C) IFC Films

  • ...once the actual exorcism commences you should find yourself reasonably invested in Emma's dilemma and will actually care how it ends.

  • What can be learned from Exorcismus? When left to their own devices, financial economists don't typically make very good screenwriters.

    Feb 14, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • While it had its moments, and while the performances, especially from Vavasseur, were borderline exceptional, the movie itself is just far too routine and familiar to achieve the thrills and chills it is going for.

    Jan 28, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Not even a few third act plot contortions can salvage the flick from its fairly shameless intent to color within the established lines.

    Started out pretty good, but went downhill. Not the worst, but I am mad that it gave me hope...then took it away. Oh well....

    The bad thing about movies is that the issue exorcism is worn, there is nothing new in this film is a bit boring.

    "La Posesión de Emma Evans" is a dark film of horror with a quite predictable story like all possession movies BUT without spoiling the anything it has something fresh in the story that makes it worth checking.

    I was hoping 'Exorcismus' would make up for the meh 'The Last Excorcism' but it didn't, although it is bit better. What's frustrating is this movie had so much potential considering David Munoz ('The Devil's Backbone') wrote it and it has a bizarre style, unique camera work that's disorienting, and few creepy b & w scenes. It sets the suspense up like 'The Omen' in that you never know what the possessed/antichrist kid is going to do next, only here the characters are fleshed out enough to make the formula more potent. Of course when it comes to explaining the possession it's always caused in some idiotic way and sadly this movie keeps that cliché except with a Faustian twist. Some of the music is questionable and takes away from the atmosphere of the movie and the biggest flaw is the unintentional laughter this film constantly struggles with instead of providing the scares needed. If this movie was more creepy and maybe had a different actress playing the possessed, 'Exorcismus' could have been a fine movie.
