I finally did it! I finally watched The Exorcist! Wow, this has been a journey. Growing up, The Exorcist was a film that was off limits. Even my dad,who would let me watch a ton of horror movies with him that were quite fucked up and are arguably more traumatizing than The Exorcist, wouldn’t let me watch it. All my relatives had nailed into my head how evil this film was, and that it was to be avoided at all…
What am I supposed to even say? This movie is incredibly difficult to talk about without spoiling it, and I do not envy whoever had to market this film because WOWZA- ummm, yeah a lot of people are going to hate this. Like, this is going to be a divisive film and that’s okay. I thought it was quite impressive. I can’t think of the last time I watched such a unique film that managed to make me laugh ( a lot) and cry (a lot). Please go into this blind (and yes, this is a huge recommendation.).
