Personal Quote:

[on the Academy Awards snub of The Exorcist (1973), which out of ten nominations won only for Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay (which went to Blatty himself)] The Academy should fold its tent and go back to baking apple strudel or whatever they can do well.

Trivia:

He really loved Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist (2005); he said to The Houston Chronicle that the film is "a handsome, classy, elegant piece of work". See more »
