Quotes

[first lines]
Mark Kermode: Twenty-five years ago, an extraordinary movie changed the face of modern cinema. I was eleven years old when "The Exorcist" opened in America on Boxing Day, 1973. And I can remember like yesterday the amazing reaction it caused. You couldn't open a newspaper or turn on the television without coming across some account of audiences queuing all night 'round the block just to see the film, only to dash out of the theaters, some of them straight into the nearest church.

Scarier than the film.
4 June 2000 | by (Lisburn N.Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a well made documentary about the Exorcist. The contributions of all the cast and crew make for a fascinating watch.

Unlike the film, the real life events describing the deaths and bizarre events during filming were genuinely disturbing, helped by the cleverly chosen clips and deleted scenes.

However, I was disappointed that Mercedes McCambridge's contribution was deleted from the video release.

If you liked the film, watch this documentary, you'll view it in a far different light.
