The Exorcist Joins the National Film Registry


It is true William Friedkin's 1973 epic exorcism film The Exorcist has been added to The Library of Congress' National Film Registry. In all honesty I just assumed that The Exorcist was already on the list, but apparently not so I was quite shocked to find out that only now has it been added.

Well according to the guys over at Variety, The Exorcist along with The Pink Panther, Airplane! and The Empire Strikes Back among others, all made this year's cut after 2,112 films were nominated.

The National Film Registry was formed in 1989. The public annually nominates films that are ten years old and "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

The Exorcist joins other horror films such as, Bride of Frankenstein, Alien, Psycho and Night of the Living Dead, to see the full list head on over HERE.

What do you guys think?
