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.

It's great to see The Exorcist back on the big screen in full glory, even if the impact of the story is weakened slightly by the stuff that should've gone to the 'deleted scenes' section of the DVD instead.

With the new director's cut ... William Friedkin has found a way to make even more of your hair stand on end with some seriously creepy new scenes, improved special effects and a restored score.

Even today's CGI effects wizards would be envious of this over-the-top technical achievement.
