The Exorcist (1973) Review
Written by: Ash's missing hand
The plot of this movie is well-known. It is adapted by William Peter Blatty from his won book. Many of the theological details in this movie ae accurate, especially the reluctance of Father Karras to encourage the ritual of exorcism. Modern medicine has replaced the devil with mental illness but this movie hasn't.
This is one of the best movies ever made. It is an F/X triumphand never is the movie not convincing. It is brutal, shocking, and I'm suprised it didn't get an X-rating when it came out. Everything about this movie works and works great.
