The Exorcist - Directors CutBy Ratch from Lancs , 02 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]Touted as The Scariest Horror film ever, the Exorcist is still head and shoulders above nearly all modern horror films.
A young girl develops an alternate destructive personality, and is slowly consumed by the new presence. With the finest doctors in America unable to cure her, her rich mother turns to the church for an Exorcism. This is a gripping story of a child at the mercy of a demon, with only a priest (and psychologist) who is losing his faith in God, as her only defence. Although some of the special effects may seem a little dated now, the overall story is still as frightening as ever.

The Exorcist.By wwill2013 (15 reviews) , 23 Aug 2013Im looking a reason to give this film more than 1 star, but sadly I cant. The ironic thing is that William Peter Blattley foolishly gives a short comment before the film starts pretaining that the whole story is TRUE. The true story, actually centred around a young boy NOT a girl who was just suffering with nightmare etc. The rest of the story was sexed-up by the Media and Blattley himself and mainstream religious extremists.
Maybe scary 40 years ago, but not now.By rne02 (28 reviews) , 16 Aug 2013Not remotely scary, unless your definition of scary of watching a twelve year old girl swearing. May have been scary in 1973, but now you just mildly chuckle at the swearing.
Not scary, but still a classic!By Eiz (4 reviews) , 22 Jun 2013I remember this being a lot more scary when I watched it for the first time at 11 years old. A classic film and still worth a watch even if it wouldn't scare you and if you're a non-believer. Quite a bit of dark humour too! I didn't really notice much difference between the 'Ultimate Edition' and the original DVD release.
Terrifying for its time but slow to get on with.By filmsaremypassion (149 reviews) from Bexhill , 04 Mar 2013Wow, this movie is definaly scary and yet has a very slow start. Long story short, a young girl suddenly gets possessed by a evil demon that causes her to become a dangerous n terrifying person. It's up to two priests, one slowly dying and the other questioning his faith, to try and bring the girl back to her normal state. At first it starts slowly, building up until the real horrific stuff begins. Its not for the easily offended or deeply relieous as some of things and what the girl says isnt very nice at all. Clocking at over two hours, The Exorcist the verison you havent seen is frightening yet I wasn't as scared as I was with other such films as the Shining and Witchfinder General. Worth a rental but be warned, its also not for the faint of heart.
