Oscar nominees Laura Linney (2000, Best Actress, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME) and Tom Wilkinson (2001, Best Actor, IN THE BEDROOM) delve into the supernatural in this thriller based on a true story that will test your resolve, and ultimately your faith. Emily Rose (Jennifer Carpenter, WHITE CHICKS) was an averate teenage girl who was the target of terrifying demonic forces that would ultimately shock a town and torment her soul. But was she, as many believed, possessed? In an attempt to clear the clergyman who exorcised Emily, a skeptical attorney (Linney) awakens to the discovery that powerful spiritual forces may actually exist. This harrowing film unfolds like a recurring nightmare from which there is no waking.

Each performer is superb in this understated drama that tells of a fatal exorcism attempt by a rural priest.
