I was more amused than scared. Jaded sensibilities of today will likely have the same reaction.

A movie so 'scary' it borders on being silly.

The new version's amendments, for the most part, are distracting and sometimes unintentionally funny.

Remains what it has always been: creepy, sadistic, well-acted nonsense.

If you want to see how it was done the first time, give this a look-see, even if all you get is a good laugh.

If you want to know what the 1970s were all about, this is probably required viewing. ...frankly, a reissue of "Earthquake" in Sensurround would have been a lot more fun.

Remains an effective excursion into demonic possession more than a quarter of a century after it was first unveiled to the public.

The sound is fantastic in theaters, and nothing can duplicate the effect of seeing something on the big screen -- especially something as potentially terrifying and soul-scorching as this.

Is it better for the additional material? That's debatable. Is it still the scariest film of all time? Watch it for yourself and try to disagree.

I went prepared to be scared, and woke up sleep-walking two nights in a row after I saw it. Isn't that what horror movies are supposed to do?

The new footage doesn't add anything in particular to the film.
