The Exorcism of Emily Rose
You can almost be guaranteed that there will be at least one exorcism or possession-based horror movie each year. But we have to admit that we were solidly creeped out and truly impressed by “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.” Not only did the film attract a strong cast (led by Laura Linney), but it really focused on crafting a story that chronicled the slow deterioration of the movies’ namesake character and the way that her possession impacted those around her (even those she never had the opportunity to meet). Linney’s portrayal of agnostic lawyer Erin Bruner only heightens the frights in this movie. If Emily Rose’s exorcism can get to a self-proclaimed cynic like Bruner it must be some heavy ish.
