Exorcismus (2010)

Director: Manuel Carballo

Stars: Sophie Vavasseur, Stephen Billington, Richard Felix

A fifteen year old, Emma, gets mad at her Mom because she will not allow her to attend a concert in London.  Before that her uncle, a priest, was showing her about satanic rituals.  One night Emma comes home late and drunk, so her and her mom get into an argument.  Emma locks herself in the bathroom, cuts her hand and draws a ritual in blood on the bathroom floor.  She starts having seizes and losing her memory.  Her parents contact her uncle to perform an exorcise to help fix her.  Emma believes her is possessed, but her parents do not, so they are hoping this will help her regardless. Her uncle just wants to prove that the devil does exist, and he is willing to put his family at risk.

I was hoping there would be more t this movie, but it was pretty light.  It is barely a horror movie.  It is more of a violent drama than anything.  The movie runs a bit slow and not one scary or even partly scary scene.  It does not even try to be.  Just thinking of the subject alone one would think to see something messed up or traumatic but no, nothing.

Emma spends the evenings in a locked room with her uncle strapped to a chair receiving the exorcism treatment.  She just walks around in a normal state of mind, but people die and are hurt during the day.  I would think that if a person is possessed then it would happen all the time not just at night during "business hours".  The ending of the movie picks up a bit with more action, but it is too little too late.  I would not recommend watching this movie.
