4.0 out of 5 stars Sharp as a thorn, 19 April 2007
This review is from: The Exorcism Of Emily Rose [DVD] [2006] (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.
