This movie is so beautifully made. Every time I watch it it bothers me more. And I love it!!! There will continue to be horror movies that are released and try to beat out "The Exorcist" as competition, but no movie will ever come close to how unbelievably scary this one is. Everything that contributes to this movie's genius is clearly present in the film. The acting performances by Jason Miller, Ellen Burstyn, Max Von Sydow, and Lee J. Cobb are spectacular. But How can I forget Linda Blair as the possessed girl. She gives a haunting and unbelievably outstanding performance as Regan MacNeil. She has a bizarre charm possessed or not when on screen you can't take your eyes off her. I won't ruin or give away any of the bizarre and horrific scenes because I'm afraid I will spoil the film for those who haven't seen it. This film is filled with show stealing acting performances and special effects that even today look better than some of today's films. I have read the novel and the film is 100% accurate to its original source material. This is a timeless classic that will continue to astound and disturb audiences all over the world for all time as long as people continue to care about well made movies. The most terrifying movie for its time and for all time. If you have not seen it, I recommend it with all my heart!
