    Read the Book

    The movie takes too many liberties with the original story. The end result is a piece of garbage that sullies the name of a good priest.

    Accurate

    This movie was based upon an actual Exorcism occuring in the United States. Contrary to the previous review, it was NOT the only sanctioned Exorcism to be performed in the U.S. by the Catholic Church in the 20th Century. In fact, just months ago, Pope Benedict XVI appointed 120 new Exorcists due to the "increasing demand for exorcisms around the world". Timothy Dalton was great. The was the Case which inspired the original movie "The Exorcist" but they replaced the boy with Linda Blair. The True version (Possessed) is far more accurate, and therefore, far more scary. I was pleased with it.
