Requiem Review

Imagine The Exorcism of Emily Rose (based on the same real-life story as Requiem), but take out most of the sweaty histrionics, the trial, and just about everything else that made the earlier movie at least passable. Requiem instead choses to dwell on is-she-epileptic-or-is-she-possessed girl Michaela (Mary Lynn Rajskub lookalike Sandra Hüller) in her quieter hours... hanging around with friends, romancing the local boy, and finally confessing her strange visions to a priest.

Thrills are pretty much nonexistent in this film, and it desperately needs them, as the movie otherwise feels like Hüller is wandering around like a bored teenager for much of the film, albeit one who should still be taking her medication.
