Anyone seen the previews for the new Exorcist movie? It looks pretty good. I don't know what it's about, but it looks awesome, because the first one was. What do you guys think?

meh, looks like crap.
The first one was the scariest movie I've ever seen, but the sequals sucked. The only thing this one has going for it is the now-trademark scary voice. I'll pass on this one.

How can you tell? And Frodo I know the other sequels sucked but for some reason this one looks promising.

Well, this one is directed by Renny Harlin. Who is known for the credits of Cliffhanger, Die Hard II, Deep Blue Sea, and A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 - another horror movie. I wasn't too impressed with the original, other than it's amazing score and some genuine scenes that are noteworthy of being mentioned. In my opinion, too over-rated... because I've seen better. Trust me, Amityville anyone? :cool:

Unfortunetly, I won't be giving this movie the time of day in the cinema. There shouldn't be any "beginning" to this series, it was fine the way it was. I really don't think this will scare anyone as much as the original either... but promising... sure. I highly doubt a blockbuster, but a friday night flick will be fine.

excorsist did not scare me at all except i believe the scene was actually edited out of some versions. But she walks down the stairs like a spider. lol i thought that was pretty creepy. Other than that it was like any other movie for me.

Movies generally dont scare me anymore. :err:

i think the new exorcist could be a great movie. but i don't think i'll see it simply because of the fact that the exorcist was a very original and classic film. the sequels sucked and this one does look half decent but they shouldn't have went with the exorcist title they should have just went their own way with that.

Wait, you just contradicted yourself louie. "It's awesome..... It's going to bomb....I can't make up my mind.... I can read minds....."

Oh, what he said.

Well I think it's going to be good, but that doesn't mean that it can't bomb. Plenty of good movies go unnoticed.

No, I think the movie will suck. Linda Blair is not playing the freaky girl, and I think that some deamon-thing that resides in a cave(of all places!) is not enough for my $7.50

$7.50? That's a lot, I only pay 5. :icon_bigg

Well, as a fellow Missourian, you dissapoint me. But ah, well, the movie most likely will be garbage, but I'm still seeing it, I don't care what any of you say. :icon_nana

That's for an evening show, I tend to pay 4.50 for a matinee.


How do I dissapoint? I thought I was great...

I too think this movie will bomb, because people will automatically think it's like the other sequels. I looks good though. I won't see it in the theatre..because I'm a pussy and I have to rent pop-out-scare-the-shit-out-of-me movies.

I got all you bitches beat...try $9.50 :icon_surp God the Bay Area sucks.

And just to stay on topic, I never saw the first one but I know how big of a hit it was. People still reference it to this day and it's said to be one of the scariest movies ever made, so topping something like that is very unlikely to happen. I say the movie will bomb.

the original exorcist was a fantastic movie. and incredibly orginal for its time. it opened many doors for other movies to come through. but i just don't think this one can live up to it. they shouldn't have called it "the exorcist" the only reason they did is to have the name. the name alone is gonna sell tickets. but i'll wait til it comes to buy or something prolly unless my friends decide to go then i'll prolly just go. but yeah i got 7.75 and i can't do the movie thing without a large cherry coke and a box of candy it just won't feel right.

Hey, I thought it was good, but what the hell...

On topic, I think that the exorcist got middle of the road reviews over at movies.com, but way better than without a paddle.

ok i went and saw this on friday night.

i gotta say it was not a bad movie by any means, except for the fact that when the chick was possessed, it was the same as the first one, lucifer was filled with vulgarity and what not.

they should've changed that and not went with THE EXORCIST and i could respect the movie a lot more.

i feel they just used the name for money
