One review

  • “The Exorcist” is a dangerous mix of religion, superstition and movie monsters. If you’re just in for a good scare, this movie is perfect. Beyond the story, the strong performances by a good cast really help put this movie over the top. Max von Sydow was never better and the performance of an incredibly young and inexperienced Linda Blair is nothing short of remarkable. Add to that the excellent lighting, sound, cinematography, and special effects (damned good for it’s time), and you’ve got not just a scary movie, but a very well made movie as well. The exorcist will haunt you for a very long time if you choose to see it, many of these scenes are extremely disturbing!
