This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Although the concept of this film is pretty exiting, "The Exorcist" fails because of it's bad script and, of course, it is not scary at all. Phrases like "Let Jesus F**k you" were so ridiculously played out that they just made me laugh out loud. Seriously, "The Exorcist" is the funniest horror film I've ever seen, it's even funnier than most of the comedies out there. Catchphrase "So bad it's good" fits perfectly in here. Expand

The final act made it worth watching but wasn't enough to redeem the incredibly slow and boring start. I wish they had trimmed a little more of the intro to quicken the pace.

I want to see a remake of this movie just so people will stop rating it so highly. The only part of the movie I like was where the girl received a CT scan. It was intellectually stimulating.

The only part of the movie I like was where the girl received a CT scan. It was intellectually stimulating. I saw the movie the first time when I was 4. I thought it was scary, but I didn't run to mommy and daddy when it was time to sleep. I managed to rewatch it. It was mostly dull or disapprovingly discusting (cross-raping of a child). I would rather a movie that plays on well-known phobias within a God vs. Satan plot... and has better makeup work to boot. coughTheConjuringcough. Expand

Don't get me wrong there was 3 chilling parts but it's the most overrated movie ever, it's not all that scary, there are some bad jumpscares, and unintentionally funny scenes, and the logic is awful.

One of the most popular horror movies. Not a fan of horrors, but this is one of the best of that genre.

It comes across as unintentionally funny rather than being a serious horror film.

The scenes that don't involve Linda Blair or exorcisms fall so flat on their faces, that they're enough to put people to sleep. It's a plot that simply isn't engaging, suffering from a large portion of side characters who are not interesting to be around with. Scenes involving Blair's possessed character do provide memorable moments that one will never forget; but is it enough to warrant multiple viewings of the film? No. Expand
