Top 7 Demonic Possessions in Horror
Whether you call it Demons or go by the Italian title Demoni, the bottom line is this Lamberto Bava film is loaded with bloody possessions. Of course, the most notable (and another one that kept me up at night) was that of the beautiful Geretta Geretta, who was the initial victim in the film and would go on to be one of the most brutal and violent of the possessed. Completely over-the-top in every way possible, Demons is a fantastically gruesome and gory adventure loaded with evil beasties that are more than just a bunch of pretty faces... these guys are truly scary!
At first we didn't know what was terrorizing that unfortunate apartment building. Then we assumed they were infected or zombies. Little did we know that all those nasty monsters were actually possessed! Not only did [REC] blow the doors off the found footage/shaky cam style of filmmaking, but it spawned (and continues to spawn) successful sequels. And it's really fucking scary! I must admit (and I'm sure I’m not that only one) that I watched the final scene of the movie, featuring the emaciated Tristana, through my fingers! Check out that chilling final scene below!
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Although she'd become best known for playing Detective Debra Morgan on "Dexter", Jennifer Carpenter shocked audiences as the title character in this film, which was loosely based on the case of Anneliese Michel, a German Catholic woman who died during the course of a real-life exorcism (and if you do a little digging, you'll find many exorcism films draw inspiration from that incident). Although it had many aspects of a courtroom drama, The Exorcism of Emily Rose certainly had its high points, and the fact that it went the extra mile to come up with a unique story was a real plus for this film.
