I’m starting out October on a strong note with a spooky classic. Let’s get to my review on The Exorcist.
Inspired by the shockingly true story of a child’s demonic possession in the 1940s, William Peter Blatty’s iconic novel focuses on Regan, the eleven-year-old daughter of a movie actress residing in Washington, D.C. When sweet Regan’s behavior turns sinister, a small group of overwhelmed yet determined individuals take it upon themselves to rescue the poor girl from her unspeakable fate. Timeless and terrifying, The Exorcist is a story that has gripped the public zeitgeist for nearly half a century.
My Thoughts on The Exorcist
The Exorcist started out a little slow. I started it several times and put it down, but finally this time it stuck. And let me tell you when the story finally started going it really picked up speed.
The creep factor in this one went from mild to scary pretty quick. Regan was fine for a little bit and then odd things started happening. I can’t say much without spoiling it but just know this one isn’t for the faint of heart. I don’t really scare easily but The Exorcist was unnerving. It really made me fall back in love with classic horror.
My Rating: 4/5
