Critic Review - TIME Magazine

Friedkin and Blatty seem to care nothing for their characters as people, only as victims-props to be abused, hurled about the room, beaten and, in one case, brutally murdered.

Yeah, because when i think of a young priest I automatically think that he has nightmares about his own mother appearing to him with two shopping bags and moaning his name. You understand the word "cliche"???

Maybe you don't get the point of the movie. It's THE DEVIL!!! You didn't reference the Devil's character at all in the review and maybe that's your major mistake with this review. Now the movie is far from my favourite but still, it deserves the acclaim that it has. At least you didn't use the word "overrated" because that word is a tool for the idiot

They know what they're doing. And besides, it's part of the film's story so don't be a Jay Sucks Cocks.

well you know what they say, and it is only out of some desire to be fair. You are entitled to your own opinion. Even if your opinion is wrong, idiotic, stupid, close-minded, or sucks balls.

This review should be amended and changed to positive. Time Magazine listed "The Exorcist" as one of the 25 greatest horror movies ever made.

yeah, what movie were you watching, this is deeply character based. Most notably Damien as a young priest in crisis. I'm glad this is an old review.
