I loved it.

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.

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

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.

If movies are, among other things, opportunities for escapism, then The Exorcist is one of the most powerful ever made.

There's something elemental about The Exorcist.

There is nothing dated about The Exorcist, which remains an effective excursion into demonic possession more than a quarter of a century after it was first unveiled to the public.

This 1973 horror thriller is highly instructive as well as unnerving.
