Storyline Heading
In an extremely rare decision, the Catholic Church officially recognized the demonic possession of a 19 year-old college freshman. Told in terrifying flashbacks, The Exorcism of Emily Rose chronicles the haunting trial of the priest accused of negligence resulting in the death of the young girl believed to be possessed. Inspired by true events, the lawyer takes on the task of defending the priest who performed the controversial exorcism.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Thriller - Despite the horror-centered campaign, this is a courtroom drama with a supernatural subject matter and some horror sequences. As such there is little gore, but there are sequences that are too intense for sensitive viewers.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average The Exorcism of Emily Rose is entertaining to the same degree as any courtroom drama of limited imagination can be. The supernatural elements add some flavor to the mix, but should not be the reason to see the film.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The film is fascinating in the way it makes legal and ethical issues seem as suspenseful as possession and exorcism.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 115 moviegoer opinions. For this type of movie, these are some great opinions. Usually horror movies have many more very low opinions and fewer very high opinions. Also unusual for a horror movie is the fact that all the age and gender groups rated it about the same. What this tells me is that "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" is a movie with wider appeal than just to horror fans. So, if this looks like a movie you might enjoy GO SEE "THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE."
