“I didn’t find The Shining or The Exorcist scary at all. I’ve always wondered why those two movies are at the top of every horror movie list I’ve seen.”
“i dont care what anyone says, the exorcist changed my life, ever since i saw a picture reagan for the first time, im scared of everything. more than 10 years on, that film terrifies me. best movie ever.”
“William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist is the scariest film that I have ever seen.”
I feel like people are going to cause a problem over this so just to clarify: The Exorcist, directed by William Friedkin, based on the book written by William Peter Blatty who also wrote the screenplay. So before everyone attacks this confessor, they are right.
“I am more scared of the 10 second shot of the priest’s dead mother sitting on the bed than I am of the anything else in the movie.”
“I couldn’t bear to look during the scene in The Exorcist where Regan had a needle in her neck and blood was squirting out. It made me feel more uneasy about needles than I already was.”
“It makes me very upset when people are like “Oh movies like The Exorcist and The Shining and etc aren’t scary, they suck”. It was a different time, those movies where like first of their time. They can’t appreciate that.”
“I didn’t find The Exorcist scary or disturbing whatsoever, and it makes me so angry to find that it’s forever number one on every “Top 25 scariest/disturbing movies of all time”.”
“As wonderful as Linda Blair is in ‘The Exorcist’ I can’t help but think that the film wouldn’t have been nearly as scary without Mercedes McCambridge’s voice work or Dick Smith’s make up. It concerns me at times that maybe they overshadow Blair’s performance.”
“I would go through reconstructive surgery to be able to spin my head all the way around as I please. I’d kill for that ability, so I can scare people randomly through out my days.”
"I’m insanely terrified of being possessed but I give my left foot (Saw reference) to be cast in a film where I was possessed. I’m quite good at acting the part, too!"
Mom: OMG CHANGE THAT. I DON’T WANNA HEAR THAT IT’S SO SCARY WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?
Me: Your daughter’s in here, Marie. Would you like to leave a message? I’ll see that she gets it.
I’ve never seen my mother look so terrified and weirded out in my whole 17 years of life.
