The Exorcism Of Emily Rose

Recommended Posts

Rented this the other night and i really enjoyed the movie. Thought Laura Linneys performance was good just like in the Mothman Prophcies. Learned some stuff like 3:00am is the hour of the demons? Jennifer Carpenter did a wonderful job as a possessed young woman. The way the story was presented gave me a new perspective on the story. I Like the comment about how some of us carry a little darkness within us. Reminded me of a MM epi

Some very frightening moments.

Linney’s character, by taking on the priests defense has drawn evil to herself. Like Frank drawing evil to himself as he tries to defeat the dark forces.

I didn’t find this as compelling as the original Exorcist. Reagan’s possession was more gradual, she progressed through phases from a perfect child to one who lied, then used profanity and then began to manifest supernatural influence.

This seemed more like a case of multiple personality disorder, with Emily able to break through to leave messages etc.

I did like Linney’s performance. A very convincing actress.

I thought I'd revive this topic since it's unclear whether the membership has given this movie much attention. A friend loaned me the DVD of this and I watched it this last weekend. I may have to "forget" to return this disk 'cause this is definitely a keeper.

All MM fans need to watch this, especially if you're partial to the religion/good vs. evil episodes. What makes this so fascinating is that it's based on a real event. While it's a bit unclear how much of the storyline is literally taken from real events and records compared to how much is connective detail supplied by the writers, this selected bit of dialogue gives you an idea how striking this movie can be:

Father Moore: Tell me your six names!

Emily Rose: [Possessed] We are the ones who dwell within.

[in foreign language]

Emily Rose: I am the one who dwelt within CAIN!

[in different foreign language]

Emily Rose: I am the one who dwelt within NERO!

[in different foreign language]

Emily Rose: I once dwelt within JUDAS!

[in fourth language]

Emily Rose: And I was with LEGION!

[fifth language]

Emily Rose: I am BELIAL!

[possessed/English]

Emily Rose: And I am Lucifer, the devil in the flesh!

Yes, I felt that they handled the film very well; it really kept it right down the middle whether she was truly possessed or whether she had the physical disorder. I thought the way they portrayed the same events from both perspectives was quite good. Truly a 'different' kind of film... Horror / Documentary... Sort of...
