    This film contains one of the best creepy-sequence-followed-by-a-shock scenes ever made, some good performances and an often effective atmosphere. However it's also heavily compromised by studio meddling that forced Blatty to make cuts to the movie and insert more explicit call-backs to the original film. The major problems I have with the film: uneven pacing, scenes which don't make sense, a cheesy exorcism and the unnecessary switching back-and-forth of Brad Dourif and Jason Miller to play the same part are products of this interference, and I hope that a director's cut can be released at some point.

    It's still a lot better than the insultingly bad Exorcist II, the events of which are ignored, although this film is actually careful not to outright contradict it.

    So damn smart and underrated, stunning performances by George C. Scott and Brad Dourif. Some truly scary moments and a couple of fantastic cinematic ones as well. 7 years 2 months ago

    Underrated. I enjoyed the atmosphere, performances, script, everything wasn't too bad in my opinion. Way better than that mess that is Exorcist II 1 year 2 months ago
