Courting controversy: The Exorcist

19 April 2010 2:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dave kicks off a new occasional series, looking at the films that have courted controversy over the years. Where better to start than The Exorcist?

There are a fair few movies that have courted controversy over the decades, be it a film about cheese under a microscope or the Asian torture film, Grotesque. Some of these films you will have heard of.: Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Evil Dead, Cannibal Holocaust, Clockwork Orange and, the subject of this feature, The Exorcist

Others, I'll be surprised if anyone but a handful of people will have ever experienced: Don't Go Near The Park, Don't Go In The Woods, Don't Look In The Basement and Don't Tell Mom, The Babysitter's Dead. Okay, that last one isn't a video nasty, but fits in with the motif of things not to do!

In the 1980s, as many of you will probably know, the video nasty boom was at its height. »
