The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)

Rated PG in Singapore

Directed by Scott Derrickson

Reviewed by Monster Mike

This is a story based on the true events of an exorcism that happened to a young german girl named Anneliese Michel in the 1970s. In the movie, the girl's name was changed to the fictional character Emily Rose (played by the very sexy Jennifer Carpenter, who also played Lisa in the movie White Chicks). A priest is accused of murder when a teenage girl is dead from a failed exorcism. The priest is defended by Erin Brunen, played by the very untalented Laura Linney. I liked the movies creepy atmosphere and the dual nature of beliefs, such as the events that happened in the spiritual world compared to what happened in the pragmatic world (or some might call it the real world). Sorry Roger Ebert, but I liked this movie more than the Exorcist, because it seemed more realistic and had no vomit. I give this movie a solid B.
