The Exorcism of Emily Rose

If you go into this movie expecting to see 2 hours of what they show in the trailer you'll be sorely disappointed. If you on the other hand read a few reviews or synopsis you'll have a better idea of what your getting yourself into.

I enjoyed the movie but I would be a little disappointed if I was going into to it thinking it was a full-on horror movie which the trailers imply and not the hybrid of courtroom drama and horror it actually is.

I doubt either part of the movie is strong enough to stand on it own but woven together it makes a half interesting movie. The horror part was done really well with an excellent job done Jennifer Carpenter as Emily Rose with all the crazy contorting and rigid moves, but I just couldn't seem them sustaining an entire movie with it and it not coming off as a rip-off of The Exorcist. The courtroom part of the movie was decent but I don't think the case nor the character were strong enough to pull it off.

I don't know if I can give it a full out recommendation as it wasn't a stand out great movie but it was at least entertaining... and really that's all it needs to be isn't it?
