When a younger girl called Emily Rose dies, everyone puts blame on the exorcism which was performed on her by Father Moore prior to her death. The priest is arrested on suspicion of murder. The trial begins with lawyer Erin Bruner representing Moore, but it is not going to be easy, as no one wants to believe what Father Moore says is true.Written by
To prepare for her role, Jennifer Carpenter spent hours in a room full of mirrors. She tried out different body positions and facial expressions to see what was the scariest. See more »
When Father Moore recites the Lord's Prayer he incorrectly quotes a line as "Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heavenly", so substituting "heavenly" for the correct word "heaven". "Heavenly" is nonsensical in context and not an error a priest would make. See more »
[Emily is in the church, standing before a gold crucifix sitting on a table in the middle of two lit candles. She stretches out one arm and starts bending backwards from her waist]
Oh, my God. Emily?
[Emily's head turns to face him. Her eyes are red]
DON'T TOUCH ME!
[She suddenly falls to the ground and stars to cry. Her eyes return to normal. Jason starts backing away]
Jason, please... don't leave me!

US Blu-ray is missing subtitles for the various languages Emily speaks during the exorcism scene. These were present in the theatrical version, and also on the unrated DVD. See more »
First of all this was a good movie. I wouldn't necessarily consider it a horror movie like Friday The 13th but it was suspenseful like The Ring. I had to look away sometimes because being a suspenseful movie watcher all my life I knew by the sound of the chilling music something was gonna happen that would freak me out and boy did it do its job.
It wasn't overly predictable. It was a look back on what exactly happened when Emily Rose got possessed and how it ended. It wasn't a "push the catholic belief down everyones throat" because defending the Priest was an agnostic lawyer trying to not only get ahead in her career but convince a journey that medical science could not determine she had a medical condition but a demonic possession. Cant tell you anymore than that.
The movie had a "dark" look and was cozy it kept me on the edge of my seat and the way she got possessed and how she looked was way freaky. Good movie and worth to own on DVD!
