The Exorcist is a horror film directed by William Friedkin that continues to terrify audiences to this day. Released in 1973, the movie tells the story of a young girl named Regan (Linda Blair) who becomes possessed by a demon, and the efforts of two priests to exorcise the evil entity from her body.

One of the most notable aspects of “The Exorcist” is its use of practical effects to create some truly horrifying visuals. From Regan’s grotesque physical transformations to the violent and disturbing acts she performs while possessed, the film manages to shock and disturb without relying on cheap jump scares or over-the-top gore. The practical effects used in the film were groundbreaking at the time and still hold up well today, adding to the movie’s sense of realism and terror.

Another strength of the film is the performances of the cast, particularly Linda Blair in her iconic role as Regan. Blair delivers a chilling and believable portrayal of a young girl who has been overtaken by an otherworldly force. Max von Sydow and Jason Miller also give memorable performances as the two priests who attempt to exorcise the demon from Regan, adding depth and complexity to their characters.

At the same time, the film’s pacing can feel slow at times, and some scenes may drag on longer than necessary. Additionally, the film’s focus on Catholicism and its emphasis on the idea of possession may not resonate with all viewers.

It’s not a scary movie, it’s a disturbing one. Chris is desperate to care for her daughter. She’s complaing most of the time for the film, trying to make her voice heard. When it does and the shrink comes to visit, that’s when hell break loose and change the altitude for the film and cement what the film has overcome after fifty year.

The Exorcist is a classic horror film that has stood the test of time. It’s timeless. The book is equally good if not better. Its practical effects, strong performances, and eerie atmosphere combine to create a truly terrifying experience for viewers. However, its slow pacing and focus on religion may not be for everyone. Nevertheless, it remains a must-see for any fan of the horror genre.
