    Isn't just a horror film, but an American classic. Watch again and reflect for days after -- at your own risk.

    The best thing about the new Exorcist is the spiffed-up soundtrack.

    There's something elemental about The Exorcist, even with the new hopeful ending that betrays the bleak original.
  7. 11 minutes longer than the original, and 11 minutes worse.
