Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
I loved it.
| Original Score: 4/4
It's good stuff but, basically, The Exorcist is a museum piece, something to be enjoyed for its historical value, its datedness and its almost quaint shock value.
Friedkin's Exorcist holds up remarkably well.
This notorious battle between good and evil, nominated for eight Oscars when it was originally released in 1973, is both a hysteric scream and an intentional as well as unintentional hoot.
| Original Score: 4/5
Essential viewing for anyone who loves cinema. If you can endure it...
| Original Score: 5/5
succeeds best in developing its characters
| Original Score: B
Some movies aren't just movies. They're closer to voodoo -- they channel currents larger and more powerful than themselves.
| Original Score: A-
There's something new to be discovered in every viewing of The Exorcist.
The Exorcist is likely just as disturbing today as it was 25 years ago.
But, is it just me, or is Karras's the only story that's really compelling?
It just never gets un-scary. That's the best part.
Trendsetting shocker about a possessed child.
An unforgettable horror film that doesn't just get under my skin - it stays there.
| Original Score: 10/10
...the movie is right up there with the cinema's better chillers.
| Original Score: 8/10
If it failed on all other levels (which it doesn't), The Exorcist would nevertheless be an excellent family horror story.
| Original Score: 7/10
From the day of its first release in 1973, "The Exorcist: was the greatest horror film ever made, and it remains so to this day.
... a crude religious exploitation piece (although poor Linda Blair - required to urinate, swear and vomit on cue - is exploited more than anything else).
| Original Score: 2/4
The overall film has a well-developed sense of atmosphere that most films of today are missing.
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.
The Exorcist is not an unintelligently put-together film, which makes one all the more impatient with it.
| Original Score: 2/5
