Editorial Reviews

This dark tale of supernatural possession from director Manuel Carballo combines classic horror with riveting family drama. Fifteen-year-old Emma (Sophie Vavasseur, Resident Evil: Apocalypse) is going through the growing pains of teen life, believing her parents don't understand her and longing for the independence that's still a few years away. When Emma falls prey to a series of seizures that leave doctors and psychologists baffled, her parents summon a priest (Doug Bradley) to help the girl. But what lurks inside Emma is far more dangerous than they could have ever imagined. EXORCISMUS mounts to a pitch of horror from which you won't be able to turn away.

Manuel Carballo's "Exorcismus" is a bit of an international hybrid--the primary film makers are from Spain (the film was released under the title "La posesión de Emma Evans"), the setting is in England, and the cast combines British, Irish, and Spanish principles. I'm going to break this one down fairly simply. If you enjoy films that explore demonic possession, you will likely appreciate this film. While it offers almost nothing new to the genre in terms of plotting or mythology, it is rather solidly constructed and generates a fair amount of tension. While there is some bloodshed and expected violence, this is not an overtly graphic example of gore, language or sexuality. In fact, the devil is rather tame--mischievous and hurtful, sure, but not as nasty and confrontational as you may have experienced in other films. If you are not a connoisseur of exorcism films, however, I'd probably direct you back to the classic and unbeatable "The Exorcist" (a film that still has the ability to shock decades later) rather than to start with this more derivative entry into the horror realm.

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.

If Exorcismus is supposed to be a modern age British interpretation of the original 1973 Exorcist, this movie fails miserably. It's lacking in all areas compared to the original- no suspense, cheesy horror moments (bugs crawling out of the toilet anyone?), so-so acting by the teenage girl (played by Sophie Vavasseur) who's the one experiencing what's initially perceived as mental issues but, as you know, is sooner rather than later realized as a demonic presence, etc. The Exorcist just has this movie completely smeared.

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.

"Exorcismus" is a film about possession--well, it's supposed to be anyway. The film takes place in England and centers around 15-year old Emma, who comes home from a little partying with friends and suddenly falls prey to self-inflicted acts of violence, seizures, and anything else predictable about possessions. She lives with her mom, dad, and little brother. Both she and her family profess to have no faith in any religion, but yet they're the first to whine, cry, and wring their hands to ask for help from Emma's uncle--a priest who is not in good standing with the church. He agrees to help Emma, but they must stay in the house alone; everyone else needs to be cast to the four corners. I'm not going to tell anything else about the film. Believe me--it's EASILY figured out well ahead of the ending.

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.
