The Exorcism of Emily Rose

I also understand you watched “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.” Now *that* movie was amazing – and – as far as I could tell – doctrinally sound. It kept me up for *nights* . . . I continually awoke at 3:00 a.m. I think the devil was toying with me, but I thwarted his efforts and said the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Phooey on him!

Right you are, Laura. The film was incredible! Steven and I stayed up until 2AM talking about exorcisms, etc. and then I thought I would be tired enough to sleep through the night. Well, I was wrong. Both Steven and I woke up at 3:00 AM. I sniffed a bit to make sure I didn’t smell anything burning, said a Divine Mercy Chaplet, and fell asleep again. Wierd.
I thought Tom Wilkinson did a fantastic job as the Catholic priest. The film as a whole was very respectful of Catholicism, and the exorcism scenes were eerie. Michael summed the experience up in one word: unsettling.
It reminded me of exorcism stories I was brought up on by my spiritual godfather…thanks Fr. Joe. :::winkwink:::
