I remember the hype around The Exorcist...I remember this freaky TV ad that is not on any S.E. disc that I saw as a child...with cult like people, bald heads...I remember school letting out early on opening day of the film and the teachers calling it "E Day"...I remember my siblings coming home from seeing it and talking about it and when I went to bed that night I couldn't move. I was literally frozen with fear.
No film has done this for me or to me since. The Exorcist rules in fear! It may not have the same effect today but it was the first of its kind when released in the 70's and no other film has had the same hype and effect on people as it has. IMHO.
So I went with The Thing as my choice. Just kidding!
