The plot is quite simple, 5 friends go to stay at a remote cabin only to accidentally release a bunch of demons from a book. The whole movie is basically them getting possessed by demons and having to kill them by whatever means necessary. The movie has had sequels and remakes as well as a Netflix series with the original main actor which I am currently enjoying. This is a classic horror and a must watch for all horror fans.

2. Beetle Juice

I question if this is a movie of exorcism at all, I mean the ghosts are trying to exorcise the new owners from the house and the owners have a seance to call the dead, so maybe? Beetle Juice is a fantastic comedy horror movie about a couple that die in an unfortunate car accident and when someone tries to move into their home they do all they can to haunt and scare the new owners away, but it doesn’t all go to plan. I have always loved this movie and is just one of the many movies from the 80s that is impossible to re-create today. Its not scary although small children may find it disturbing as there is lots of frightening make-up. If you have never seen this movie please do!

I remember when this movie first came out, there was a lot of hype as it being the jumpiest scariest movie ever made. It is also based around and supposedly true story of the family that moved into a house which had been the sight of a brutal murders many years before. The House is haunted by a number of spirits and paranormal investigators are called din to help investigate. The movie lives up to its hype as its not just terrifying but is also very good all round and has since had many prequels and sequels being connected to the Annabelle movies (Annabelle is in this movie).

4. The Vatican Tapes

Finally a film on this list which is pretty much all about exorcism. A priest and two Vatican exorcists must do battle with an ancient satanic force to save the soul of a young woman this time the forces are a little more powerful with basically God Versus Satan which gives it a bit more than other exorcism movies. The story has been done dozens of time, its always a young women and a couple of priests. Its not a bad little movie and perhaps even a little under rated.

When a frightening wave of violence sweeps through New York City, troubled cop Sarchie fails to find a rational explanation for the bizarre crimes. However, his eyes are opened to a frightening alternate reality when renegade Jesuit priest Mendoza convinces him that demonic possession may be to blame for the gruesome murders. Best way to describe Cop drama meets The Exorcists. More entertaining than your basic exorcism film.

6. The Exorcism of Emily Rose

When a younger girl called Emily Rose dies, everyone puts blame on the exorcism which was performed on her by Father Moore prior to her death. The priest is arrested on suspicion of murder. The trial begins with lawyer Erin Bruner representing Moore, but it is not going to be easy, as no one wants to believe what Father Moore says is true. The movie is a little different as it jumps from courtroom to exorcism making it a court room drama movie more than anything, this makes it a little misleading to me. The mpovie is more serious than other horrors with plenty of drama.

7. The Rite

Seminary student Michael Kovak reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While he’s in Rome, Michael meets an unorthodox priest who introduces him to the darker side of his faith, uncovering the devil’s reach even to one of the holiest places on Earth. This movie is more about faith than anything, it is also based on true events given that extra creepy feel. It is not a real horror or scary movie and more of the faith drama than anything.
