The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Factual error: During the credits, as the house is shown, a paper wasp nest is shown hanging from the eaves. Crawling all over it are honeybees, which do not live in paper nests.

Continuity mistake: When the lawyer, Laura, is in her room in two scenes, one of which is when she checks on a letter almost at the end of the film, her hair is lighter than the rest of the movie, where her hair is noticeably darker.

Factual error: During the opening scene when the house is being shown, a nest hangs from the porch ceiling with live bees swarming around it. It is also snowing. The insects are honeybees, but the nest is a hornet nest. Honeybees don't make paper nests. Also, bees, hornets, and wasps are not active during the winter. (00:02:40)

More mistakes in The Exorcism of Emily Rose


Ethan Thomas: I'm looking at your list of published articles, doctor. You've been quite busy, prolific. So, based on your time spent with holy rollers, snake handlers, voodoo priestesses and Indians tripping on peyote buds, based on observing these bizarre individuals, you've concluded that possession is a basic typical human experience?
Dr. Adani: I must say, counselor, that's quite a laundry list of disdain and one that thoroughly mischaracterizes my research.

Karl Gunderson: Are you drunk?
Erin Bruner: Not yet. But I'm working on it.

Emily Rose: I choose to stay.

More quotes from The Exorcism of Emily Rose


Question: At the end of the movie, Emily is greeted by the Virgin Mary who gives Emily a choice. She can either ascend to heaven or remain on earth and become a martyr to prove that God and demons are real. Emily chooses to become a martyr and shortly after dies. How is her death supposed to prove that God and demons exist when Ethan came up with so many logical explanations for her demonic attacks?
