'Exorcismus' is another very typical exorcism movie, a girl gets possessed, acts a bit strangely and then people start dying. However the twist at the end manages to separate it somewhat from the others. The acting of a couple of members of the family is a little to be desired and the camera-work can seem a little like a teenager with a hand-held but for the budget it does what it needs to.
Overall it's another case of where the trailer is far more interesting than the film itself but if this is your type of movie, it's worth watching as a rental.
