Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Adding to this movie's catholic religious tone , we should sum the fact that Exorcist is a existing procedure , to freed possessed people from demons , increasing the fright and paranoia of the catholic faithful's audience
  • Will probably scared those people who believe in God, for those who believe in free will, this movie may shock you but will probably not turn you into a Christian.
  • May be frightening to some people. in the past, this was the scariest movie ever created. The effects are still good and this movie does not hold back.
  • very intense.
