O.K., so it isn't the most scary of films any more, and maybe 'that scene' with the crucifix doesn't quite come off (no pun intended) any more, but "The Exorcist" was where all the others started. (Apart from anything else, Blatty's script - like so many that would follow - has holes the size of the Grand Canyon in it.)
Overall; whilst it may be showing its age, that doesn't detract from it being an important and ground-breaking film.
