From Amazon.co.uk

A surprise hit when it was released in September 2005, The Exorcism of Emily Rose tells a riveting horror story while tackling substantial issues of religious and spiritual belief. It's based on the true story of Anneliese Michel, a German student who believed she was possessed by demons, and whose death during an attempted exorcism in 1976 led to the conviction of two priests on charges of negligent manslaughter.

As director and cowriter (with Paul Harris Boardman), filmmaker Scott Derrickson adapts this factual case into a riveting courtroom drama in which questions of faith, and the possibility of demonic possession, take the place of provable facts in the case of Father Moore (superbly played by Tom Wilkinson). A small-town Catholic priest, Moore has been put on trial for the post-exorcism death of Emily Rose (Jennifer Carpenter), a college student who, like her real-life inspiration, believed she was suffering from demonic possession. As an agnostic defense attorney (Laura Linney) argues the father's case against a Methodist prosecutor (Campbell Scott), flashbacks reveal the exorcism ritual and Emily's ultimately fatal ordeal, and Carpenter's performance is so frighteningly effective that it's almost painful to watch.

From here, the film remains deliberately ambiguous, leaving viewers to ponder their own belief (or lack of it) in the supernatural. It lacks the extreme shock value of The Exorcist, but by leaving room for doubt and belief in a legal context, The Exorcism of Emily Rose gains depth and resonance in a way that guarantees similar long-term appeal. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant film 7 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
To be honest any comparison of this film to the exorcist is unfair and a bit pointless. It's not out to be the exorcist at all and in reality is a lot more realistic and a lot scarier. The mixture of Emily's exorcism and the courtroom drama is very effective in creating a realistic and tense atmosphere. The posession scenes are incredibly well done and, if your not into courtroom sequences, they are worht the wait. I found it all very entertaining and unsettling. Definately worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing mix of Court Room and chiller 20 Jun 2008
By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
With such a recent plethora of movies based on torture and gore to achieve their chills, it is refreshing to find a movie that retains some intelligence and still manages to get a few spine-chilling moments, with barely a speck of blood or guts to be seen.
First and foremost, this is a court room drama. And yet there is an interesting twist, because the subject is one based on belief, not on facts.. and it makes for some interesting moral questions. The movie starts at the tail end of events as the priest is taken into custody. A young woman, Emily Rose, has died in his care following an exorcism. Was it neglect on his part keeping her from medical care for a psychotic epilepsy condition, or were his efforts justified and in fact medical intervention nullified the effects of the exorcism? We are led through the events in flashback throughout the course of the trial, sometimes to eery effect, as the priest refuses to cut a deal and insists on telling Emily's story to a jury.
At the centre of the movie is the relationship between Laura Linney's jaded and agnostic defence counsel and her client the priest played by Tom Wilkinson. The two leads play with conviction, but Jennifer Carpenter's physically demanding role of Emily Rose should not be overlooked.
Admirably, the tone is not one of full on shocks and scares - there is a neutrality which gives you space to make your own mind up, and yet allow you to see events as the Father Moore and Emily saw them. It's this intelligence towards the subject which sets this apart from most other recent horror movies and makes this worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiritually Powerful Story. WOW 19 Mar 2006
Format:DVD
This movie is a joy to watch as it add's a fresh aspect to such a taboo subject. The actress playing Emily Rose will take your breath away with a stunning flawless performance. As for the rest of the cast what can I say, wow... perfection. The court room scene's are engaging and the whole movie is well constructed from beginning to end. This movie will have you thinking about it for weeks as it bring's up some powerful issues. I recomend you envest in this movie to watch and enjoy time & time again. Spooky Stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and very scary 25 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
I must confess I wasn't particularly interested in this film as the idea of yet another court room drama did not inspire me. However it was cheap and received a lot of very good reviews so I had to give it a go. I don't remember any other horror film giving me the chills like this did, I just know I'll be listening very carefully if I happen to be awake at 3AM in the morning. The acting all round is first rate, with Laura Linney doing a very convincing job as the lawyer who rediscovers her principles through dealing with a priest who refuses to give up his own.

The story is loosely based on real events, occurring in Germany decades before this film was made. As Laura's character says in the film does anyone know for certain that there aren't angels and demons? It certainly opens up the whole debate for me.

Highly recommended film, just try to avoid watching it alone in the dark, and especially not in the early hours of the morning!

Format:DVD
The Exorcism of Emily Rose, is a very well written film, full of depth, feeling and some ambiguous questions - is there a god, are there demons and do you believe in the possibility? there are no real horror moments, just the thought of being scared by what might be. Was Emaily Rose possessed or did she suffer from some illness? This movie is quite creepy in areas, it's well made, because there's not a lot that really happens that gives reason as to why you feel scared - you just do? I would recommend this film, it raises some interesting questions while giving you the creeps.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharp as a thorn 19 April 2007
Format:DVD
Hidden in a glut of modern day horror swill and pseudo drive-in disposable popcorn flicks, The Exorcism of Emily Rose is surprisingly old-school. A movie of subtly that eschews the standard scares for something that is quite creepy yet at the same time moving. This film was convincing enough, perhaps not in terms of the subject matter but the sincerity of it - though perhaps jarring if you thought too hard about the idea of exorcisms being debated in a 21st or late 20th century court. The scares when they come are slight yet deftly done even for the more jaded of spook-fans, making for some unnerving scenes that are scarier than most 18 cert films currently doing the trashy rounds.

The film has its flaws, yes, just as the argument at the centre does, but this is one horror film that doesn't ask the viewer to suspend their imagination too much despite its spiritual subject matter.
