If you like spooky courtroom dramas about the occult, "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" will be the perfect movie for you. If you're looking for a typical teen slasher flick, steer clear of this recent release and see something else or head to Knott's Scary Farm. "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" is based on the true story of a teenage girl who is either possessed by the devil or suffering a severe mental illness.
