THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE - DVD REVIEW
- Mitzi J. Johnson
Hello, movie lovers, hello. I have not had enough coffee, today; so, please pardon me if I am just not as enthusiastic as per usual. Not much up with me. I am almost caught up with the fourth season of LOST. I haven't really talked about my obsession with this hit series. I would like to have coffee with MATTHEW FOX. He is someone I feel like I could really talk with, you know. Okay, so, this next film caught me by surprise. I was watching the NANNY DIARIES, and noticed that LAURA LINNEY was great in the film. So, I was talking to one of my friends, who is a LAURA LINNEY fan and she said, have you seen, (the movie I am about to review), and I said no. She said, "Well, you must."

Well, I was quite surprised by this film. I am a HORROR movie buff and this film was recommended to me during HALLOWEEN. I
didn't watch it. I remember it looked interesting when it came out, because who doesn't love an EXORCISM movie, but I still
didn't see it. It took LAURA LINNEY to actually get me to see this. She is a wonderful actress and in this film she really
gets to show us her acting chops. Her intelligence is dazzling. It is great to see CAMBELL SCOTT, who doesn't love him? TOM
WILKINSON gives a sturdy performance as the priest. The actress who plays, Emily is terrif! She gives LINDA BLAIR a run for
her money. The supporting cast is quite good. The story is pretty interesting. Apparently, it was based on a true story, which
makes it even creepier. In the special features section the writers talked about how they researched tons of books on POSSESSION
and EXORCISM. I think it shows, because there is a lot of substance to this film. And, of course the special effects are
AOK! It is like LA LAW meets THE EXORCIST and I found myself in moments really thinking about what was happening. Imagine,
THINKING in a movie. How great is that?
