Lamest Exorcism Ever

In keeping with my nom-de-blog, I feel compelled to comment from time to time on exorcism-related news. Today I'll point out that The Exorcism of Emily Rose, a film about demonic possession opening in theaters Friday, is somehow only rated PG-13. How is this possible? Isn't an exorcism supposed to be pretty scary, the kind of thing to warrant an R rating from the MPAA?

Someone at the IMDB message boards addresses this by pointing out that the trailer is misleading. The movie is apparently mostly about a court case with a few flashbacks. Why the studio is selling this as a horror flick is beyond me since the people going for gore will be pissed at being misled, and they might find the PG-13 rating fishy in advance like I did.

P.S. Happy Labor Day to all of the carpenters and factory foremen who read this blog, I'm sure there are tons of you guys.
