Did You Know?

There were two dolls constructed for this film. The first was where Emily Rose would lock her limbs. The other was during the dorm scene where she is on the floor in a twisted position. The director ultimately never used a doll in the dorm room scene because he found out that Jennifer Carpenter is double jointed, and decided that the positions she was able to contort herself into were more unsettling than what could be accomplished with the dummy. When Emily starts to bend over backwards in the church, Carpenter wore a harness to make the effect more inhuman.See more »
Factual errors: The prosecutor is only partially correct in that humans have two sets of vocal cords (they are properly known as vocal "folds"). He calls them "duel sets," consisting of the "superior vocal cords" and the "primary ones." They are correctly known colloquially as "true vocal folds" and "false vocal folds." The FVF are called "false" because they are made up of membrane, whereas the true folds have a deep layer of muscle tissue and can be controlled. The FVF can be recruited by powerful airflow and/or by disciplined muscular movements by the muscles surrounding them. However, they cannot be "activated" in the sense that a muscle can, and would not produce a different "voice." At most, some harmonic overtones or vibratory interference (such as that heard in Tibetan chanting) might be heard. The prosecutor uses the term "dual voices" as if it means two separate actual voices, as if "voice" was being produced by two distinct sets of vocal folds, which is not possible in humans. The writers confused it with some individuals' ability to produce two different fundamental frequencies by vibrating each of the true vocal folds at different rates, but the act of forming words is not determined at the vocal fold level, but by resonances created by the positions of the articulators in the vocal tract.See more »

Devishly Delightful, 10 September 2005
Author: Addie-2 ( from Richmond, VA

I think one of the biggest problems with today's movie industry is that in teasers and trailers most, if not all, of the action/special effects are shown. Then you go see a movie because the trailer looks great only to find out that you've basically seen all the good stuff. Thankfully, I have learned that this is how many trailers work, but I still go see a movie praying that I'm not wasting my hard-earned money on a really expensive and really long commercial; let me savor something! I was pleasantly surprised at The Exorcism of Emily Rose; going knowing that it's not only about her exorcism, but also about the trial that follows.This movie is also about alternatives,what ifs, and perceptions. A good movie for psychology majors--as am I--who are trying to learn about mental illness, diagnosis, and the DSM-IV.

You don't need to know much about Emily, science, exorcism, or the Bible to be able to follow this movie; but, if you do, it'll definitely make you raise questions about your own faith, beliefs, and what you've learned throughout life about yourself.

Will you like this movie? Think "Primal Fear" meets "The Exorcist" meets the TV Show "Fact or Fiction".
