      The Exorcist Reviews

      Prev Next

      It’s not only one of the best horror films ever made, it’s easily one of the silver screens finest features.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/4 | Nov 22, 2022

      As much as it has been parodied and referenced and imitated millions of times, it is still one of the best horror movies ever made. Full review in Spanish.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Apr 18, 2022

      The director's horrifyingly maintained assault of the viewer's senses and faith leaves the audience subject to devilish, claustrophobic torment that makes the resultant spiritual awakening all the more powerful.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/4 | Mar 18, 2022

      It's actually kind of astonishing to me that the film still retains the power to shock and frighten a first-time viewer.

      Scary then, scary still. Without a doubt one of the most frightening films ever made. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Mar 27, 2021

      Remains one of the scariest movies to date given the shocking nature of its subject matter of a little girl possessed by devil, and it's really up to the audience to believe if that can happen or not.

      The makeup is still top-notch and spectacularly chilling, paired perfectly with puppetry and repulsive props for several of the most alarming cinematic shots.

      Full Review | Original Score: 9/10 | Aug 29, 2020

      A product of its time, in the best ways.

      Full Review | Aug 11, 2020

      Such perfectionism at the service of trash takes on a lurid, almost indecent, character. Still, Friedkin has a crass expertise with which he can keep the average moviegoer from laughing at these absurd goings-on, and he certainly gets great performances.

      Simply the most terrifying movie ever made, even now.

      Full Review | Original Score: A+ | Jul 8, 2020

      The film continually struggles to suggest through atmosphere what it promises but fails to provide in substance.

      Full Review | Mar 27, 2020

      The probelm for me is that the movie has no sense of purpose, no convictions.

      Full Review | Dec 17, 2019

      One scary movie that still terrifies me to this day...

      Full Review | Oct 26, 2018

      They went above and beyond...we have movies like The Exorcist to thank for so many other movies...

      Full Review | Original Score: A | Oct 26, 2018

      This is a powerful movie that continues to stand up today and for good reason too - it's a masterpiece.

      Full Review | Original Score: 10/10 | Oct 11, 2018

      "The Exorcist".. may not be a great film. It is, however, a brilliantly successful horror movie.

      Full Review | Feb 9, 2018

      Friedkin seems to have found his forte.

      Full Review | Jan 8, 2018

      Without a doubt, "The Exorcist" is a touchstone in horror, seemingly incapable of taking a wrong step. Watching with the lights off is strongly encouraged. Turning them back on immediately afterwards will be a necessity.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/4 | Jan 30, 2017

      The Exorcist runs out of steam long before reaching its decidedly low-key (and somewhat anticlimactic) finale...

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Nov 4, 2016

      A work of cinema in its own league.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
