Did You Know?
The critic at heart is like a medical examiner. He or she simply wants to get that cadaver on the table and figure out how it lived. A film-maker is like a pregnant woman. All the film-maker wants is to give birth to a living thing. So if you allow the medical examiner into the birthing room he will kill that baby. [Nov.2017]
Originally directed Exorcist: The Beginning
(2004), but his final version was rejected by the producers for not being enough of a marketable mainstream horror film product. Schrader was replaced by Renny Harlin
, who re-shot about 80% of the film. Schrader received no credit for that version. However, Morgan Creek Pictures did a limited release of Schrader's Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist
His films are often set at night.
