I know many people say The Exorcist is a very disturbing and unsettling movie, people maybe scared, or they may not be.

What's you're view, did you find it scary?

My Opinion:
I actually love this film!
I hear people say it's terrifying, I hear people say it's not. Personally, I don't find it's scary at all, however, it's one of my favorite films. I must praise Linda Blair, isn't she talented?

I personally think that the movie is terrible but it's hard to know what I would have thought of it when it came out. It probably was really scary back then but time, culture, expectations change and now we can look at it without being scared (and even laugh).

Unfortunately I was not born when this came out, perhaps someone who saw it when it came out can give us their 2 cents?

I find it a dreadful bore. I love Part 3 though.

I always thought that The Exorcist, while good, was way overrated. As I've gotten older, I've liked it more and come to recognize its significance in film history. It's the film that "legitimized" horror films to many critics and film snobs. Until then, horror films were seen as this tawdry genre that no one respected. Then The Exorcist, a big studio film directed by a name director, came along to critical acclaim and big box office and changed the game. A few years later, we had Carrie with two acting Oscar nominations. Today, not only are horror films completely legitimate, for many studios they can be extremely lucrative. Look at just about anything that Blumhouse produces--even if you don't particularly like one of their films, you have to admit that it's extremely well made on a frugal budget--and consequently, can make the studio a huge profit.

I wasn't born when it was released either! But, I always thought it was a fantastic film. I could watch it over and over again without getting bored.

I started to watch Part II as my friend wanted me to see it with her, although neither of us found it that good. I need to watch it again sometime, though. I probably wasn't fully engaged when I first started to watch it as it was pretty late at night.
