The film is about a young girl dies under the supervision of her priest who tried to preform an exorcism. He tells his story to the court in hopes the people will understand. This movie was slow and really boring to watch with noting scary at all.

Great acting job and a fascinating court case

This is one of those films that provides me with the best of both worlds and what I mean is I enjoy both courtroom dramas and horror flicks and with this feature you get both! Taken from a true story of real life exorcism victim Anneliesse Michel who in 1975 started feeling like hers wasn't the only soul inhabiting her body and her exorcism ritual ended up killing her. This case is the classic medical science vs. religion case as her md's diagnosed her with having epilepsy as to which they medicated her and then she was pulled off the drug by her priest as he felt it blocked the whole exorcism ritual this in turn ends up getting him charged with manslaughter as his accusers believe that because of his convincing her that her meds needed to go he and her family failed to provide Anneliess...

"The Exorcism Of Emily Rose" by Yojimbo

I'm not a great fan of horror, but the trailer for this film looked so good I thought I'd make an exception. Very much in the tradition of The Entity and The Exorcist, this religious horror concerns itself with the supposed "possession" of a young girl but unfortunately spends far too little time on her and her story. It's so desperate for "true story" credibility that the "factual" courtroom accounts keep interrupting the far more interesting flashback sequences. If the story had just been told as is without the somewhat dry and uninvolving courtroom scenes, I think a fine chiller could've emerged; as it stands it's just a solid religious pot-boiler. Note to the producers: Which is really more interesting, a. A sheltered and devout young woman who finds horrifying and inexplicable events...

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

I saw this on Halloween with friends and it made me realize that I underestimated this film! I originally had given this a three out of four stars but I've recently decided to regard as a four-star picture. I guess this is more of a courtroom drama than a horror film but I think that's a wise decision. It provides a fresh outlook about exorcism. Laura Linney is amazing as a defense lawyer who initially took the job because she wanted to make partner but changes as her faith (or lack thereof) is challenged by both the darkness and the people that have been affected by it. The courtroom scenes are definitely highlights but the scene that stood out to me the most was when Emily Rose's boyfriend woke up in the middle of the night and Emily was not right next to him like she was supposed to.
