There will most likely never be another film like The Exorcist, that pushes boundaries and affects audiences the way that it did back in the early 70's. By today's standard's it's a slow, deliberately paced movie that takes its time to build to the payoff. Of course those very elements are the movies strengths and the reasons that it's so damned effective. This version of The Exorcist amazes with its visuals and sound, and is packed with so many supplemental and extra features that it makes us sad that we never had them to watch back in the day.
|Showing a 12 year-old girl using a crucifix as a dildo while screaming "Fuck me, Jesus!" is about as shocking as it gets for most folks, and I can't imagine that scene making it into a theatrical movie these days.|
Many have tried to make a possession movie as effective as The Exorcist in the years since its release, and many have failed. No matter how good some possession movies have been over the years, none can seem to truly capture the magic that Friedkin did here. Most don't even come close. Not even The Exorcist's own sequels.
Let us also say that we LOVE DigiBooks; sure, it might make us a little odd, but DigiBook packaging brings a small tear to our eyes to behold. We're movie geeks, and are also very simple creatures, apparently. What do you want from us?
|During the day with the lights on... that's how we watch this movie.|
Oh yeah, and the score is an all time classic.It sounds fantastic here as well.
|"... Now kindly undo these straps!"|
