Matt's Movie Reviews

The Exorcist not only tops the horror genre but transcends it, resulting in a profound experience where moviemaking horror, thrillingly dramatic storytelling and deeply felt spirituality of the Catholic kind make for pivotal viewing.

Creative Loafing

A finely crafted thriller that benefits immensely from William Friedkin's controlled direction, William Peter Blatty's thematically fruitful script, Owen Roizman's imaginative camerawork and Dick Smith's startling makeup designs.

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.

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.

Some movies aren't just movies. They're closer to voodoo -- they channel currents larger and more powerful than themselves.

But, is it just me, or is Karras's the only story that's really compelling?

If it failed on all other levels (which it doesn't), The Exorcist would nevertheless be an excellent family horror story.
