Exorcism (1975)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

4 / 10
I'm going to take a stab in the dark here and assume that this movie was made to cash in on the success of The Exorcist (1973) and I have no issue with that as I actually don't mind cash-grab movies as long as they turn out alright. However, Exorcism isn't a good movie. But it's not so much a terrible movie as it is just a dull one.

Paul Naschy has a little bit of presence in his generic priest role but almost every other character is forgettable to the point where I have trouble remembering who they were when their character's name is brought up later. Aside from a few small moments of demonic possession, there's not much in the way of special effects or cool deaths or anything exciting. Any suspense they attempt to conjure up is met with lackluster scares and moments that end up being less creepier than the filmmakers were hoping for.

While Exorcism doesn't copy The Exorcist scene-for-scene, it has enough similarities that you can't help but compare the two and come to the conclusion that this movie doesn't come close in any aspect.
