Now Online: Trailer for Requiem, A Different Take on Emily Rosedeadmanwalkin
Scheduled to be released in German cinemas on March 2nd, 2006, REQUIEM is a film based on the same true story of Anneliese Michel. Hollywood recently gave us their take with THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE and now director Hans-Christian Schmid looks to take this story in a whole new direction, focusing more on the tragedy of Annelises life than the actual possession.
From the looks of the trailer (which can be viewed here), REQUIEM looks to be more of a drama, than actual horror, but I thought fans of THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE would like to know that there will soon be a different version of the film - and one that looks to be very intersesting, as well as heart-wretching.
The story starts in the early 1970's, when the young German student Michaela Klinger (Sandra Hüller) leaves her very religious home to start her studies in Tübingen. After enjoying the first steps into her new freedom she begins to feel chased by inner voices. She comes to the conclusion that she is possessed by demons. At first she fights against it, but then she voluntarily seeks help in an Exorcism.
