Watching horror movies all alone in the middle of the night is not everyone’s cup of tea. But people who are a big fan of horror movies and have the courage to watch them enjoy it thoroughly. These movies keep the flame of suspense burning from starting until the very end and surprise you with the oh-so-scary scenes from time to time. Over the time, there have been several scary movies that made people jump out of their bed and deep-rooted the fear that can wake them up in the middle of the night all sweaty and panting.
One such heart-pounding scary movie of all the time is ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose.’ It is the story of a 19-year old college going girl, Emily Rose played by Jennifer Carpenter, who is possessed by the demons that made her practice self-abuse, starve, speak in different languages, and destroy religious symbols. Then the parish priest, Father Richard Moore played by Tom Wilkinson visits her and found out that an exorcism is indicated. That eventually lead to the death of the girl and the priest is charged with negligent homicide.
Being a horror movie based on the scary topic of ‘Exorcism,’ it had its fair share of soul-shivering scenes which we are going to share with you further.
The 3 AM Scene
One night at 3 AM, when the body of Emily Rose gets paralyzed and that was the moment when the demon entered her body. She could feel something squeezing her neck and trying to get the hold of her body, and she couldn’t move her arms, legs or body. Imagine anything like this happening to you even in your dreams. Scary as hell, Right!!
The Classroom Scene
Sitting in the class, Emily turns to the student beside her and sees his face turn into a demonic face. It scares her to the core, and she left the class all frightened up. On her way to the Church, she also sees the faces of strangers turning demonic as if they are trying to scare her away. Her boyfriend follows her to the Church where he sees the body of Emily acquiring strange, unnatural positions and distorted shape. The visuals are scary enough to get you to jump scared!!
The Boyfriend Scene
The scene starts how Emily Rose is scared of the recent disturbing experiences and her boyfriend tries to calm her down and put her to sleep. But when he woke up, he couldn’t find Emily on the bed and get horrified to see her lying on the floor in a distorted shape with her limbs twisted. And when he tries to reach her, she makes weird noises and scares him away. The disturbing visuals of the scene will make you bite your nails with fear!!
When Emily’s Sister Comes to Her Room
Being one of the terrifying scenes, it starts when Emily’s sister goes to her room to call her and find out that she is eating bugs. After that, she starts scratching walls with her nails, tearing her hair out, and making weird noises. When her dad comes into the room along with Father Moore, the demon inside the body of Emily twist her limbs at odd angles and make her body stiff. Later in the scene, Emily lashed at the priest who was trying to help her get rid of the dark forces.
The Last Exorcism Scene
One of the most frightening scenes, where Emily Rose ultimately reveals that there are six demons inhibiting her body. They reveal themselves in six different languages that have possessed others in history. In this scene, the demons call the family cats to attack the priest while Emily frees herself and leap out of the window. That scary leap will certainly have your heart in your mouth.
Father Moore mentioned in the movie that “Demons exist whether you believe in them or not.” And if you believe they do, then this is the movie that you must watch at least once, be it alone or in the company of your horror movie lover friend.
