Exorcism films are becoming a dime a dozen and this one is close to a penny a dozen. We learn through the course of the film that Emma dabbled with an ouija board in an effort to awaken and tempt the devil. You don’t get to see much since the details of the exorcisms are kept under wraps by way of the narrative, although you do get glimpses of it in the final act that turn out to be nothing quite new from what’s already been done, such as the trash talking, sexual come-hithers, and more levitations, together with the Lord’s Prayer, use of holy water and other equipment in a priest’s arsenal. It all more or less hits the fan when Emma’s mother won’t let her to go a concert. I won’t even bother discussing the cast because honestly they are all just awful. The story here is fairly generic, straight-forward but also somewhat predictable, which ultimately causes the movie to lose appeal and fail to stand out in a sub-genre that is already flooded with less than mediocre movies. There aren’t any problems with mpeg compression artifacts or nasty edge enhancement but black levels do sometimes get a little bit murky and muddy looking.

Decent acting from Sophie Vavasseur and a twist that although not terribly surprising isn’t horrible either. Emma is a home-schooled teen who one day cuts herself. Hmmm, I wonder what that could be about? Sign In Remember Me. Bad acting and way overdone build up to something you see coming all along. What I liked about it was that everything takes place during the day, even outdoors. Emma is willing to undergo an exorcism. If this camera work is supposed to represent the view of a character in the story – who could this be?

My final verdict, 3 out of 10, giving it 3 for the acting and thats about it, i cannot recommend this movie to anyone.

A rare film about exorcism in similar style to The Exorcist by William Friedkin. The last third improves a bit as we learn why the girl really cut herself at the beginning of the movie.

Life seems to be carrying on as normal, until one day Emma starts experiencing frightening fits. Jo-Anne Stockham and Richard Felix exorcismhs irritatingly dense.

Exorcismus- Devil Delving – Wicked Horror

Brazil Criterion Collection [Blu-ray] Buy: The directing wasn’t bad, althou i have to also blame the director for this nonsense of a film. Emma, while under hypnosis, made some unusual sounds she starts to wonder if she isn’t suffering from demonic possession. The film ends with the girl in hospital, and special guest star Doug ‘pinhead’ Bradley, sitting by her bed and saying something of no relevance.

In the case of this film, the director could have kept things ambiguous without ever showing us anything supernatural but, thankfully, he didn’t go that route.


One review likened this to the Exorcist?? She has a convulsion and is, of course, taken to the hospital but nobody there can find anything wrong with Emma – she seems to be in perfect shape. The story has been around a while with some notable exceptions and the ending is a lot better than most I have seen in the last 10 years. It gives exorcism movies a breath of fresh air buy introducing manipulative tactics used by priest and also included typical elements of an exorcism movie.

Detsawm 30 December If the movie stuck to the pure original exorcism style movie without trying to be different it probably would have been much better. I blame this on the writing. There are good ideas and good settings for some scenes but they aren’t used to their full potential.

There are some twists and turns in the 2nd half that make this more interesting than it should be. Exorcismus looks decent enough on eoxrcismus 2. Call the optical exorcist.

But is Emma really possessed by the devil, or is it all in her exorcismhs little teenage head? OK…A young girl in England starts acting strangely. Stephen Billington makes for a good casting choice in the role of the priest, while Jo-Anne Stockham also turns in good work as the overbearing mother.

The acting is very believable. And the whole possession moments were horrible. I have to admit that the subtitles on my blu-ray sucked so much that it took me away from the movie many times and may exorcimsus an effect on my feelings about the experience overall scandinavian people, beware of shitty subtitles and if you feel you need to buy this, get it abroad with English subtitles.

Too many things were toned down and it didn’t have real impact on me. As the saying goes, don’t push your luck and tempt the devil, because you’ll never know the true impact of such an unwarranted pact, that you’ll probably live to regret it. There aren’t any problems with mpeg compression artifacts or nasty edge enhancement but black levels do sometimes get a little bit murky and muddy looking.

She often faints and goes into seizures. The first third of the movie is very strong. The only adequate performance in Exorcismus is Sophie Vavasseur’s one, because she can evoke the changes of nature her character experiences, and I’m not only talking about the exorcism aspect, but also about her condition of teenager.


At the beginning Emma has an argument with her overprotective mom: Slow and overly preachy, Exorcismus is hardly essential viewing BUT if you’re a fan of exorcism movies the film does feature pretty much all the requisite scenes you’d want from a movie of its ilk and it features some good production values.

She begins to act strangely around her family for no rhyme or reason. It is about a 15 year old girl called Emma Sophie Vavasseur who life suddenly unexpectedly changes one day when she begins to start having frightening fits.

This begins to worry her parents very much, but they seem to put it down to just being psychological problems, but Emma feels that there is something very much powerful happening to her.

I bought into the explanation so it didn’t turn out too bad, but be warned, if you’re not receptive to little creative sparks adopted by the filmmakers, then perhaps this may be quite frustrating to sit through given a number of plot conveniences you have to buy into, and having more talk than to show for it.

Exorcismus- Devil Delving

Hmmm, I wonder what that could be about? On the other corner of the ring is Stephen Billington as the priest Christopher, who is as eager to assist his niece as he is to laying down some ground rules which are a bit peculiar even for horror fans, such as performing it outside of holy grounds, not engaging more spiritual help exorcimsus fellow brothers of the cloth, and not arresting the problem on the spot, spreading the exorcism over a number of days, with vast periods of intervals as well.
