"The Exorcist" is a true American horror classic. One of, if not, the best example of the horror genre in American, nothing released since has really come close to topping it. Restrained, true, acting; disturbing visuals, an unsettling atmosphere and a story that is both truly scary and emotionally compelling and resonant; "The Exorcist" seems as modern now as it did when it was released in 1973.

Is it just me or is the Exorcist not as scary as its made out to be? Yes it is a great movie, it has it's horrifying moments i.e. the descending the staircase, but at times it teters close to the edge of the ridiculous. Great horror film yes, one of the scariest films of all time, not really. One critic aptly described the Exorcist as Religious pornography and I agree, as great as it is. Realistic psychological thrillers are always more scary than the supernatural ghosts and demons. I guess it call comes down to what you believe.
