Movie Review: “Exorcismus”

OVERALL: Another fun possession movie. Scary, creepy, and thoroughly enjoyable. If you get a chance to see this movie, do it.

POINTS: Believable. The possession part was believable and all of the characters seemed real.

PITFALLS: Silly parenting, but that does help create an angry teenager who would then be ripe for possession.

FEMALE CHARACTER(S): They, like the men, were believable. I especially liked the self-awareness of the daughter.

CULTURAL PITFALL(S): Well the parents were afraid of the daughter’s sexuality so of course got mad when she didn’t come home one time. I mean really. Sex education and birth control, ok people.

HIGH POINT(S): Huzzah to our daughter actress – unfortunately I can’t find who plays which role. Her transformation from daughter to demon was wonderful. She should be proud.

BECHDEL TEST (Website): 3 of 3 – according to me. Mother and daughter talk a lot. However I did not find it on the Bechdel Test Website.

IMDB: As of January 1, 2014, the link was broken.

OFFICIAL MOVIE WEBSITE:  Exorcismus – IFC Entertainment

DVD/BLU-RAY WORTHY: Yes. I saw it on Netflix streaming. I would buy this though so I could watch it i

 LION PAW PRINTS:  3 of 5. Good movie.

HUBBY’S HORROR RATING. “It is a modern uptake on the original Exorcist movie. It has a family you can identify with. The suspense at the end is really good.” Hubby is wise. 🙂
