The Exorcist

The Exorcist ★★★★

No film can live up to the hype of being labelled the scariest movie of all time, especially with many years of hindsight and the change of horror trends. But The Exorcist does hold up for me as a creepy drama with extremely interesting characters. It basically goes about the idea of a loved one being possessed by a demon in the most grounded way possible. I just get sucked into the eerie tone; haunted by the depressing religious idea that people can be corrupted by pure, unmotivated evil.
