I've Read Father Amroth's books regarding his experiences as an exorcist, and I highly recommend them. It was in trying to find a book about the true story of "Emily Rose" that i came across them and I feel it was the spirit guiding me. I know so much more about demons and exorcism then I thought I knew. It really is a part of the Church that has been forgotten...and wrongly so, since the fight between Christ and Satan for souls is what this life on earth is all about.

This is the first review I've seen that favorably contrasts "Emily Rose" with "The Exorcist." Most critics prefer the older movie.

Having seen "The Excorcism of Emily Rose," I'll say this: it's not an enjoyable movie, but it is well-made. And, like Robert Duvall's "The Apostle" and Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ," "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" takes the claims of faith seriously. On balance, and with the caveat that it's told through the eyes of Laura Linney's agnostic lawyer character, I'd recommend the movie as fair to Catholicism and more thoughtful than most of its genre.

I liked it! A good film, good acting, scary and fair to the Church. I recommend it.

I see that you guys are interested/involved in Catholic exorcisms. The Pitch newspaper out of Kansas City recently did a story about a K.C. man who claims to have done over 500 exorcisms. Check it out and tell us what you think at
