The Exorcist

The Exorcist ★★★★½

I recall my Father saying that this movie made him afraid to use the stairs as a 10 year old. I know why now.

This is definitely one of those movies that has been ripped off and built upon so many times that it kinda loses a little something when you watch it for the first time after all these years.

It's all about the dread. Hell, most people when it was released were more upset about the hospital scenes then they were the demon shit and the kid fucking herself with the crucifix.

Man this movie is serious and that's what I really liked about it. Thats what makes it so scary and intense. And that is the bottom line what is different with horror films today is that there has to be jokes, It has to look fake, and none of it should be taken seriously. There is no way in hell some scenes from the Exorcist would make it past the always nervous studios these days.

It certainly has aged a bit, but who didnt shit themselves when they saw that demons face for the first time.

It also punches a guy in the dick at one point which is pretty awesome.
