31 days of October Terror: 10/21

Day 21: The Exorcist is still one one of the scariest pictures there is in the genre, but it's also a great piece of modern 70's filmmaking. William Friedkin's picture is sharply directed with unexpected depth and has great performances by everyone. Makes an excellent companion piece with the William Peter Blatty-directed The Exorcist III.

Did you ever see "Exorcist: The Beginning"?

Yee-AAAHH! Wasn't expecting that picture of Linda Blair as I scrolled down...while eating lunch.

Tom - I did. Both Versions. The Schrader one was better, but both were wildly misguided films.
