Though publicized as a reboot of the original movie, it can in fact be considered a sequel, as evidenced by the photo of the infamous stairs and a newspaper article recounting some of the events from the first film. See more »
I agree with anyone who believes the Exorcist is the scariest movie ever. In fact, I think it's the scariest by far. The TV show wasn't as scary, but it was creepy enough...for TV. I watched it alone, and that is something I cannot say for the original (even though I've seen it many times.
It was actually a lot better than I dared hope. It was well filmed, smart, stylish, and compelling. It has some great actors playing characters who appear to have at least some layers of depth to be unraveled in the coming weeks. It was good to see Geena Davis. That was a nice surprise. The casting overall seems well thought out, and it works for me.
There's only been one episode at this point, but it was pretty, pretty good (to borrow the Larry David phrase). I've got my fingers crossed that the show can maintain its current level of intrigue.
I may be overstepping a bit, but it has the POTENTIAL to measure up to American Horror Story (season 2) and maybe even...Penny Dreadful (season 2).
We'll soon find out.
