"In what was considered a rare and controversial decision, the Roman Catholic Church officially recognised the demonic possession of a 19-year old college student named Emily Rose.
Her exorcism was recorded, and that audiotape recording played a crucial role in the events that followed..."
And so begins the trailer for The Exorcism of Emily Rose, a new film, based on a true story from Sony Pictures and Lakeshore International, which you can see by visiting the official site at www.sonypictures.com.
Told in flashbacks, The Exorcism of Emily Rose charts the haunting trial of the priest accused of negligence resulting in the death of the young girl believed to be possessed. Inspired by true events, the film stars Laura Linney as the lawyer defending the priest (UK actor Tom Wilkinson, recently seen in Batman Begins) who performed the controversial exorcism.
The film (which has been called the first ever courtroom horror film) is released in US cinemas on September 9th, and hits UK cinemas on November 4th.
