there's something elemental about The Exorcist, even with the new hopeful ending that betrays the bleak original.

A brilliant horror film.

The scares were sometimes cheap, but they weren't stupid.

Top Critic

Still a shocker.

It's still a shock to see how young Linda Blair was; it is Regan's nymphet innocence, of course, that renders her subsequent ravings so obscene.

Still jolting.

Audience Reviews for Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen

½

While still an absolute masterpiece of horror, the extended version of The Exorcist changed the ending to a more hopeful farewell...an act that was rather unnecessary. The other additional scenes, apart the infamous spider-walk, do nothing but slow the movie down. If you have no other way of watching this horror classic, by all means check it out, but the original cut is still the best way to go.

I saw this version and found it a little better than the original, but the beginning is boring and confusing.

The greatest horror film ever made. It doesn't scare me or anything, but it is really well made and is one of my favorite movies.
