The movie begins
with the arrival of a coroner (sort of like Father Merrin in The Exorcist, btw excellent movie). Father Moore is soon arrested
for allowing Emily Rose to both waste away and tear herself apart.
Father Moore is
to be represented by Erin Bruner, a legal ladder-climber who informs him matter-of-factly that she's taking the case to earn
a senior partnership at her firm.
Let's look at the
Ok here's a part that was disturbing: Gambutrol, the medication Emily was taking to prevent
her "epileptic seizures" according to one witness interfered with the exocism and assisted in her death.
- There is no exorcism in it at all.
- Has very little to do with Emily Rose
- And the entire movie practically takes place in a court room.
Now how lame is that?
The Exorcism of Emily Rose in no way pushes the envelope,
and while there are some chilling moments during her demon-induced cat scratching hissing fits, they're few and far between.
Director Scott Derrickson failed at creating a thought provoking
motion picture, instead he's managed to cough up a disappointing Exorcist ripoff! *How sad.
