Controversial and popular from the moment it opened, The Exorcist endures as a defining classic that influenced movies afterward and still shocks and haunts today. The frightening and realistic tale of an innocent girl inhabited by a terrifying entity, her mother's frantic resolve to save her and two priests - one doubt-ridden, the other a rock of faith - joined in battling ultimate evil always leaves viewers breathless. In the Extended Director's Cut, director William Friedkin and producer/screenwriter William Peter Blatty integrated over 10 minutes of footage deleted before the film's 1973 release. They include moments deepening the impact of a first-rate ensemble's remarkable performances and reinforcing the film's grip on its audience. A phenomenon of its time and for all time, The Exorcist astonishes and unsettles like no other movie.

  • The Best

    I think this is the best (and most frightening) film ever made. It is just perfect in its execution and I can't think of a way that anything could have been done any better. The premise is simple - the possession of a young girl in Georgetown - but what makes this so effective is the measured build of her plight and the helplessness of the protagonists around her. The acting is fantastic, dialogue excellent, visuals and audio perfect, the subject matter treated seriously, and it has a lasting effect on the viewer. The Exorcist is a timeless tale of the fight between good and evil…and it is scary.

    It is just like the non extended version, but it's made all the more interesting with the flashing Pazuzu faces, and a much scarier Spider-Walk. Linda Blair is Spiderman, :O D:
