Besides the performances, which are uniformly strong, what's so terrific about "The Exorcist" is how it's in no hurry to get to the meat of its horror. Unlike today's horror movies, it isn't exploitative. It's about its characters.

I went prepared to be scared, and woke up sleep-walking two nights in a row after I saw it. Isn't that what horror movies are supposed to do?

...Still a thrill to watch after all these years, so full it's hard to absorb in one showing, so affecting it will still keep you awake at night. But maybe for different reasons.

It's a little longer and a little more concerned with story. Its bark has grown though, and there's still no serious challenger to its title of 'The Greatest Horror Movie Ever Made'.

Is it better for the additional material? That's debatable. Is it still the scariest film of all time? Watch it for yourself and try to disagree.

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

There is no doubting this is a traumatic film, but whether or not you enjoy it will depend on what you're looking for.
