    Com uma história intrigante e reviravoltas que seguem bem o propósito, 'O Exorcista' se aproxima do original sem forçar ou querer ser melhor. A rede por trás da igreja é um arco bem planejado e executado.

    Gripping, sucked me in straight away. Three episodes in I stopped and decided to wait till the weekend so i could binge.

    Compelling characters and an intriguing story make The Exorcist a series worth watching.
  • Mar 09, 2021
    A worthy and glorious ending to the Regan & Pazuzu storyline, and that was just a plus Something of a breath of fresh air in the "supernatural" horror genre. An excellent combination of -sorely missed- brilliant writing and acting, what this series achieved is nothing to sneeze at; After 70 years of horror movies, from Devil Rides Out to VVitch and Hereditary, who would have thought it is still possible to even make an 80-min movie based solely around demonic possession, let alone a series, that is not only "actually" horrifying and scary yet is also thought-provoking. The actual "horror" isn't just in what you see (still pretty scary); it's written in the atmosphere, the feeling you get when you see a demonic invasion and a corrupt church and law enforcement, coupled with the evil in human nature and lack of presence of God where you can't tell if what you are feeling is influenced by God or Demons; that world is truly scary. Who should you run away from, towards whom? There always has been likes of Polanski or Lynch and many in between (mentioned at the end) who truly respected the integrity and importance of "the screenplay" and didn't settle for repetition of the horror flick formula to get a few scares; instead searched for new ways to provide a rich atmosphere of fear and horror. This is a combination of justified scary scenes and an atmospheric fear. The Innocents, Hellraiser, Susperia, Blair Witch, The Ritual, The Believers and a handful of others

    An under advertised horror masterpiece ... this TV series is all the way up there with Marianne and Hill House.
  • Nov 09, 2020
    Whilst it doesn't compare to the classic original, it still is respectful enough that the links to The Exorcist not only work but feel right.
  • Oct 19, 2020
    Geena Davis is back!!! She will take a hammer to your knees if you disagree :) An extremely interesting move forward on the original movie which is so dear to my heart! The acting is sublime from all characters who probably knew that if they f'ed up the original movie with a 10 episode continuation of Regans life hereafter...they would never work again! Thank you! What a superb leap forward on a classic horror movie!
  • Oct 04, 2020
    The season has some flair in its plot, but suffered from unconvincing special effects and a lack of imagination when it came to demonic intentions and special effects.
  • Aug 18, 2020
    It´s awesome how they surprise you without the jumpscare factor. The soundtrack is not great but it is inmersive. I´d definetly put more work on it. The acting on the other hand is very solid helping the character development grow as the story evolves. It´s definetly worth your time for a rainy afternoon
