The Exorcism of Emily Rose is a 2005 horror/thriller film directed by Scott Derrickson. The film is based on the true story of Anneliese Michel, a young Catholic woman from Germany who died in 1976 after unsuccessful attempts to cure her from the alleged state of demonic possession with the means of psychotropic drugs. Also, a church-approved exorcism was performed on her, according to her wish. According to the court, her death was caused by medical neglect of the priest watching over her. The story of her short life which consisted of strong faith and an exhausting struggle with what seemed to be supernatural powers served as the basis for this horror movie. The screenplay was written by Scott Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman.
Many viewers saw the film as a courtroom drama that was marketed as a horror film, and it was largely dismissed by critics who were expecting a more terrifying experience. As of July 18, 2006 it had made $144,166,820 worldwide according to www..., http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0404032
