Raging Demons and Burning Crosses

Day 4 Soul Possessor:

The Exorcist (1973)

Lasted Halloween, I watched this film in a dusty old country movie theater with my Dad and it great to see a 50 year old stance Libertarian freak out over, the flashing demonic images and masturbating crucifix scene. Since the film's it not as intense as people may remember it (the R rating is due to language, well mainly) but sure packs one hell of cinematic punch. From f/x designer Dick Smith's phenomenal makeup work to director William Friedkin's left hook surprises, this is probably the best acted and produced industry horror movie ever made.
