The Exorcist is considered to be a horror classic, One of the scariest films ever made. But to me it just wasn't.
The Special effects were incredible. The acting was incredible. The problem was the scares and some of the plot weren't incredible.
The start of the Exorcist just bored me completely, i felt like there wasn't really much point for it to be there. Also nothing truly horrifying happens until after half way through the film. I'm sure that when this was released it left people shaking in terror and being to scared to check the noise coming from the attic, but i'm afraid to say that this film hasn't aged very well. To put it simply, it was NOT scary.
Even though the Exorcist isn't exactly scary, it is a really good film. After watching this, the exorcist leaves you with an everlasting effect. You can't forget seeing this film. There are so many iconic scenes and characters and lines. Take the character of Regan (Linda Blair), she is probably one of the most disturbing characters ever portrayed on screen, simply because she's a little girl who is possessed and says things like 'LET JESUS FUCK ME' or 'YOUR MOTHER SUCKS COCKS IN HELL!'. Scenes with Linda Blair in are simply unforgettable.
To sum the Exorcist up i would have to say it's not a good horror film. But it is a brilliant film.
