The Exorcist (TV Show, 2016 - 2017)
Synopsis: Two very different men tackle a family's horrifying case of demonic possession.
Number of Seasons: 0
Critics Consensus: While director Schrader's attempt at a literate, internal exposition on evil temptations and human sin is admirable, this prequel suffers from hit-and-miss psychological tension, poor visual effects, and weak writing -- an overambitious failure of a horror movie.
Starring: Stellan Skarsgard, Gabriel Mann, Clara Bellar
Director: Paul Schrader
Exorcist: The Beginning (2004)
Critics Consensus: A mediocre, gory horror film, nowhere near the quality of the 1973 original.
Starring: Stellan Skarsgard, James D'Arcy, Izabella Scorupco
Director: Renny Harlin
The Exorcist III (1990)
Critics Consensus: The Exorcist III is a talky, literary sequel with some scary moments that rival anything from the original.
Starring: George C. Scott, Ed Flanders, Brad Dourif
Director: William Peter Blatty
Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977)
Critics Consensus: Hokey mystical effects, lousy plotting, and worse acting directly tarnishes the first's chilling legacy.
Starring: Linda Blair, Richard Burton, Louise Fletcher
Director: John Boorman
The Exorcist (1973)
Critics Consensus: The Exorcist rides its supernatural theme to magical effect, with remarkable special effects and an eerie atmosphere, resulting in one of the scariest films of all time.
