"The Exorcist" is a terryflying thriller that was released in 1973. The film tells of a actress Chris MacNeil, played by Ellen Burstyn, who her daughter Regan, played by Linda Blair experienced odd behavior, until Chris found out that her daughter has been taken over by the devil.
It took two priests to confront the devil in the film's conclusion. When the film came out in 1973, I was too young to see it. Last Fall, when the film was released with new scenes, I went and saw the film for the very first time and I wasn't disapointed.
"The Exorcist" is still frightning 27 years later.
I saw this movie on the big screen back in the 70's and, being a young Catholic boy, it did not frighten me...it scared the living sh*t outta me!! As an adult, I've come to appreciate everything about this film, and it remains one of my favorite movies of all time. I recently introduced it to my 11 and 14-year-old step daughters... they were laughing at a few of the scenes, and informed me that it was "dumb". OUCH, that's blasphemy...this movie is a CLASSIC!! Then again, so is Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", and even I think that was dumb!!
I guess its hard to impress kids who receive emails with photos of the bodilly remains of suicide bombers and video clips of American prisoners being beheaded.
