The Exorcist

At the age of 31 this was my first time watching this (which is two years older then I am!) and i almost didn't make it.

The film is slow to start and its only when Regan starts to show strange behaviour does it become compelling. The film then starts to rocket, reaching a surprising climax. I can honestly say I didn't know how it ended.

Shocking language, extreme effects (for its time) and compelling acting from Blair (who was a child at the time) make an excellent film. Shame about the strangely disjointed preamble, maybe its due to the version being the directors cut.

First 50 mins or so *---
The rest ****-

Buy or rent this film from Amazon
