I've just never heard such an opinion of that movie. Honestly, in all my days. Confused

Hey, don't get me wrong, it was good, but it doesn't hold a candle to Toy Story, WALL-E, or A Bug's Life.


WHAT????????

Dude.

I can't even.

I'm with you on that one! Was my favorite movie when I was little. Now it is Star Wars...
Very Happy

Finally saw The Exorcist. Graphically not scary (by standards today anyway) but psychologically it was alarming.

I don't think physcoloically is a word Cool but whenever I watch The Exorcist it gives me nightmares. Or at least Linda Blair shows up in my dreams and that's nightmarish enough. They actually did a really good job with the makeup on her. She really did look frightening and it's a memorable look. It still works.

I heard about this movie but I don't think I wanna watch it. I like horror movies but it seems that this one is pretty scary... Shocked

Embarassed I don't suppose I could sell the story that I spelled it wrong because that movie creeped me out enough to disable my brain's spellcheck function? Razz

Part of me half expects that when I look at the edge of my bed she'll pop up and start spinning her head or something.

I watched some of it when I was a kid. I found it quite boring, to be honest! For some reason I was more scared by a low budget werewolf film (Dog Soldiers) than The Exorcist.

I was lucky to catch The Exorcist a few years ago as part of a Halloween Double Feature at the local Arthouse theatre (with The Shining).

The only part of it that got to me was in the hospital, with the freaky medical device that measured the blood vessels in her brain. Cold, metallic, invasive. Dehumanizing more than anything the demon did.

The Exorcist and The Shining, eh? That had to be the double feature to rival all double features. Smile

I wasn't scared by Dog Soldiers, but I did enjoy that film.

Dog Sldiers was not that bad. And it had werewolfs when there were no werewolfs left (pre Underworld, or that Twilight nonsense) It was an action flick more than an horror film imo.

Well, I was a youngun' at the time Wink . I think the reason I liked it (and the reason it unnerved me) was because it was a group of professional soldiers who were struggling against werewolves, not 'ordinary' people - whom I feel shouldn't be able to last against such creatures for longer than five minutes.
