In 1972 the officers of Warner Bros decided to turn to film his book William Peter Blatty "Ôhe Exorcist". Ystera the refusal of Stanley Kubrick and John Boorman, the director takes a young man who finally started to become known after the successful (artistic and commercial) of Ôhe French Connection. O William Friedkin thus having the full support of the same author (who has adapted the script) ... read more

First of all, movies don't scare me all that easily. A few did when I was a kid, but not anymore now as an adult. Therefore I rarely watch "scary" movies with the idea that I'm going to get frightened in any way. These days, I just judge 'em based more on the quality of entertainment that I get from the story, art direction, acting, blah blah blah....
That said,
boy, when I think of... read more

A landmark of cinema!

The Exorcist was a major hit not just within the horror genre but also cinema itself because there has never been any terror within a film that is so believable and realistic. It is a landmark of horror/thriller films alongside others such as Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, Steven Spielberg's Jaws and Jonathan Demme's The Silence Of The Lambs. It does have some science fiction parts about it but it isn... read more

5 Star Horror (27 movies items)

"This remains (after over 40 years) my first pick for movies that scare me. I usually watch it as part of my annual Halloween weekend movie binge at the end of October (in a dark room with the tv up loud). I can't figure out what it is about this particular movie. It's not the head-turning, pea-puking Regan. Maybe it's the priest. Maybe it's the knowledge that this is one of those movies where the set was ... well, weird things happened. Or maybe, it is the memory of twelve-year-old me boundin"

Teenage Memories (49 person items)

" When I first watched The Exorcist it was still banned in the UK, the dodgy pirate VHS tape that was somehow even creepier with its random moments of fuzzy inference and sudden sound squawks, ironically the eleven year ban was dropped later that year and I purchased its official release. Was it the scariest film I'd ever seen? I'm not sure when I reached a certain age I really looked at horror movies that way, I definitely found it creepy, but not necessarily from the more obvious blatantly "

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

"Based on a novel by William Peter Blatty, who also penned the screenplay, actress Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn) discovers a demonic possession around her daughter Regan (Linda Blair) and attempts to rescue her by hiring Father Karras (Jason Miller) and Father Marrin (Max von Sydow) to extract the spirit out of the 12-year-old girl. At first, Chris sent Regan to a number of neurosurgeons and psychiatrists, but they suggested she reach the one priest in Washington DC who’s lost his faith. Part o"

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★½ NOTES: Director’s cut. One of the changeovers, which would cut off a few frames and a second of audio, had three changeover cues! A green ring down the right centre, a cigarette burn and another green ring. At times dusty to the point where you’d think it came from 1973, but these are just a few faults worth noting.

"Täydellisesti ohjattu, onnistunut elokuva mielenkiinnottomalla sisällöllä. Pahojen henkien riivaamat raukat sekä manausrituaalit eivät ole koskaan olleet mielestäni kiehtovia. Uusintakatselukaan ei muuttanut tilannetta: katson Manaajaa hieman pitkästyneenä, älyllisen etäisyyden päästä. "
