One of my most loved books and film. Yes The Exorcist was first a book before being turned into a film – the book did not come out after the film. But as always there is a copy of the book that was edited to fit the following of the film.
I think this film has scared a lot of people I know – considered one of the scariest films. I just love it.
I will say this film is not for children under 16 – possibly 18. I know I don’t have room to talk since I grew up on films like this, but there is a scene in the film which I did not see until I bought the uncut version. Let’s just say it involves a crucifix and a demon’s complete hate for God.
