Personal Quote:

I know what my other pictures were. I know what was bad about them. I also know that they were pretty good when you consider how inexpensively they were made. Anybody should be able to make a good movie if they spend $20 million the way they did on The Exorcist (1973). Comparatively speaking, for what we spent on it, Abby (1974) was probably a better picture than "The Exorcist." See more »
