I used to think this movie was way overrated, still kinda do, but I like it more than I used to. It's sad that Linda Blair is such an underrated actress.

Love this film! And yes, as far as i'm concerned it was an still IS the scariest horror movie ever. I'll go as far to say it is arguabley the BEST horror movie of all time, in my opinion.

Here's why; The Exorcist to me, is the total package. There are many different elements required to create a successful horror film, and this one has them all: A scary solid script, strong directing, competent editing, EXCELLENT acting, wonderful make up/sfx, a healthy mix of the gross out factor and old school creepiness, and an extremely eerie and memorable score.

While there are plenty horror films that have many of those qualities, i know of none that have them ALL, except The Exorcist.

A true masterpiece, in my opinion.

I was wondering, since there has been so many exorcism type films (its basically a genre now) and the Exorcist inspired them all, were there any influences for the Exorcist itself? Basically, are there any exorcism films that predate it?

Scariest movie I've ever seen. Watched it for the very first time a few nights ago, & I can see why it was effective. The beginning drags along, mostly because I feel like they were trying to develop the characters, but from the time the major shit starts happening and to the end, it's very fucking solid.

It's been a long, long time since I've been genuinely scared by a movie...to the point where I felt like a little kid looking for monsters under my bed. haha

"The Exorcist (expanded edition)"....This 1973/2000 newly edited version was released with various scene extensions, more evil images, deleted scenes from the original cut, and most importantly a devastating staircase descent by "Regan". The Exorcist is truly one of the scariest and shocking movies ever made. Direction by William Friedkin is great and the screenplay by William Peter Blatty is outstanding. The cast is absolutely wonderful and the performances are spot on!! Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, Max Von Sydow, Linda Blair, and Lee J. Cobb all deliver shining and commanding moments. There are so many unnerving and shocking moments to praise and give notice. The spinning of the head, the crucifix scene, the exorcism scenes...the list goes on. Its one hell of a movie, and one that none of us will ever forget!! Nominated for 10 Academy Awards(including Best Picture) and winner (Sound and Screenplay) of 2 !!

10/10
