The Exorcist (1973)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

9 / 10
The Exorcist is a timeless classic that still holds up very well to this day. The spider walk scene in the movie is an excellent addition as this is the moment where I felt complete dread and that there was no way this possessed girl could be saved. While it may no longer have people throwing up their dinner and running out of theatres like it did back in the 70's, The Exorcist remains an extremely chilling film.

What more needs to be said about The Exorcist? Almost as effective today as it was back then, Exorcist is one of the most chilling and effective horror movies ever made. The glimpse we get of Pazuzu's face is what nightmares are made of.
The Exorcist (1973)
Review by Chris James

Maybe it's because I first saw this without knowing much of the "hype" surrounding it, but The Exorcist is on a very short list of horror films that managed to scare me as an adult. Today people tend to lean towards finding some of the scenes humourous rather than frightening, and I can definitely see that, but the first impression left on me still mostly holds. I'm not one bit religious, and yet as batshit crazy as I find Billy Graham to be, I'm in nearly complete agreement with his assessment that there's something "evil" contained in this movie.

But it's scary and/or funny, nearly everyone that's seen it has one of these opinions and has argued about their side. What can't be argued to me is that this is an excellent movie, with perfect performances from everyone involved. It's a movie you show to people that write off the horror genre as trash, as it's as classic a movie as the word gets.
