The Exorcism of Emily Rose 2005

The found footage genre seems to have denigrated the horror genre somewhat; rather than shaky-cam aesthetics and no-star casting, 2005’s The Exorcism of Emily Rose benefits from a genuine sense of gravity in presenting a supposedly true story, but also from the casting of Tom Wilkinson and Laura Linney in central roles. Emily Rose (Jennifer Carpenter) dies after an exorcism, and lawyer Erin (Linney) is charged with defending the priest (Wilkinson) involved. There’s still plenty of scope for creepy flashbacks in the structure, and the first couple of briefly glimpsed intimations of supernatural activity are extremely disturbing. But Scott Derrickson’s film is a cut well above most horror films, with a genuine feeling for the real world and for its characters, establishing a human drama that takes place sometime after most horror films have long since boxed their bangs, crashes and shock effects.
