The film starts on an intriguing note--fifteen year old Emma (Sophie Vavasseur) is unraveling mentally as she succumbs to random acts of violence and unexplainable seizures. I really enjoyed the film's set-up because you're never quite sure that she isn't just ill--either psychologically or physically. This interesting premise is soon smashed as, indeed, evidence of a demon becomes incontrovertible. From here on out, we head into pretty standard territory. The film does a good job showcasing the grim affects that the outbursts have on the family. First and foremost, the film's strongest asset is keeping things on an intimate scale.Read more ›
Some of the segments we see are decent however, such as the one with the girl visualizing shoving her brothers head in the bathtub water attempting to drown him only to actually go through with it a moment later. Also the segment with the girl holding a pot of scolding hot water in the kitchen only for her arms to suddenly catch on fire leading to her passing out on the floor is another memorable highlight. The movie has a few decent moments such as these.
I think what bothers me the most is that the girl alternates between evil and normal at the flip of a switch, whereas Linda Blair from the Exorcist gradually got more demonic to the point of being absolutely hideous, barbaric and offensive. Sophie Vavasseur just comes across as really tame and uneventful most of the time. Basically Exorcismus is just a poorly written film all around.
However, the lack of an effective horror atmosphere and basically watering down all the things that made the original Exorcist so captivating. We really need a lengthy build-up of questioning whether the girl really is possessed instead of quickly coming to the conclusion that she *is*. Come on, that's a cop out.Read more ›
The first part of "Exorcismus" is almost a direct copying (although BADLY) of "The Exorcist," complete with shots of Emma having all sorts of tests run on her, the x-rays of those tests shown for the parents' information, etc., etc., etc. Any type of tension this film may have had went out the window with poor editing. And I would suggest to Manuel Carballo, the director, that the next time he wants a demonic voice, PLEASE get someone/something that at least sounds wicked--not funny. Emma's possessed voice sounded like a 6-yr. old trying to play "monster" with mommy or daddy.
The film is not rated. It contains a little violence and language, and running time is 101 minutes. I'd suggest you skip this one.
