Reviews

A trilogy of paranormal horror. In the first 'The Exorcist', actress Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn) has every reason to be content, having just completed a film with director Burke Dennings (Jack MacGowran). However, she becomes disturbed by the changes taking place in her 12-year-old daughter, Regan (Linda Blair). At first sullen and withdrawn, Regan becomes aggressive and blasphemous, and ugly welts appear on her face and body. No medical cure is forthcoming, and after Burke is killed by being thrown from Regan's window, Chris turns to local Jesuit priest Father Damien Karras (Jason Miller) for help. Karras then calls in exorcist Father Lankester Merrin (Max von Sydow), who confirms that Regan is possessed by the devil. William Peter Blatty's screenplay, based on his own novel inspired by actual events, won an Oscar, and the film was deemed so powerful that it was refused a BBFC certificate for fifteen years. 'The Exorcist 2 - The Heretic' sees Regan (Blair), the demonically possessed child from the first film, now a relatively normal, happy teenager, living under the care of a psychiatrist (Louise Fletcher) and her mother's ex-secretary (Kitty Winn). When the demons return to haunt Regan, priest Father Lamont (Richard Burton), himself suffering a crisis of faith, is sent to investigate. Whilst 'The Exorcist 3' sees writer William Peter Blatty return to direct this 'first true sequel' to the original film, based on his own novel. Fifteen years have passed since Father Damien Karras (Jason Miller) died exorcising Regan MacNeil. Now his best friend Lt. Kinderman (George C. Scott) is troubled by a series of mysterious murders which are strangely reminiscent of those committed by the Gemini killer - who was executed on the night Karras died. Does the killer's spirit live on, and if so in whom? Kinderman's investigation leads him to an amnesiac in a mental hospital who has recently awoken from a fifteen-year coma, can describe the Gemini killings in detail, and bears an uncanny resemblance to Damien Karras...

THE EXORCIST
One of the best horror films there is. The film conveys a certian atmosphere, that changes throughout the movie. The fact that it looks real and to some extent feels real, mixed with the surrealism and spritualism. This then gives the feeling of shock and unease. I feel it sways from being a horror film to a thriller as the scene between Chris MacNeil and Lt. Kinderman would suggest. Overall that sense realism, a excellent script and superb acting make this film so fasinating to watch. THE EXORCIST never seems to age because of those factors.
EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC
John Boormans's EXORCIST II is a vey bizzare movie to watch, as this never really is a horror film althought it does have its moments. It has a futuristic quality to it, such as the dream and hypnotic sequences. Which explains Father Merrin's past and how he encountered the demon Pazuzu. The film also shows how Merrin died in THE EXORCIST, and the fact that he was a heretic. The special effects in this film are imperessive. The exorcism of the Africian boy was excellent, but Boorman and Lederer do not come close to the realism of Friedkin's and writer/producer Blatty's original.
THE EXORCIST III
William Peter Blatty directed this film which was based on his book LEGION. This film is excellent thriller. As the plot overall has a connection with the original. Blatty creates a perfect sense of dread and unease much like THE EXORCIST. The use of lighting is perfect in this film, it doesn't seem unreal rather surreal, there is a difference. Blatty's shock tactics are fast and well done. Overall a film that grips and shocks you. This film is has that same shocking feeling of the first. A brillant sequal.
THE EXORCIST DVD packed full of features. Such as "The Fear Of God" Documentary. EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC has two trailers and alternate opening. THE EXORCIST III has a trailer.

The original Exorcist Trilogy is essential viewing. The films are spooky, Stylish, well cast and very entertaining.
The first is the classic horror that starred Linda Blair, Max Von Sydow and Jason Miller. The first film works so well on its own that some people I'm sure probabaly wish there hadn't been any sequels. I though am a fan of the sequels as neither are simple re-treads of the original but are both films that continue the story in unique styles.
In the second film directed by John Boorman, you get Richard Burton starring as well as Linda Blair and Max Von Sydow features. Ennio Morricone does the score, watch the trailer and you can hear how great his score is. This first sequel will definately not be everyones prefered sequel as it is very different to the original.
I suspect more will appreciate the third entry which is superb and fits better with the original but is still very different. The third film stars an exellent George C Scott and the always brilliant Brad Dourif. You also get the return of Jason Miller. This third film is very spooky and atmosheric.
This boxset doesn't include the two prequel films, but I don't think they're worth owning especially as the second film features prequel scenes with Max Von Sydow anyway. This Boxset has some good extras such as the documentary 'Fear of God' and audio commentaries and original trailers.

The Exorcist- Greatest horror film of all time? It's VERY well made, but probably not. Looking at it for the first time, I really enjoyed watching it, but I didn't faint and I went to sleep quite comfortably afterwards. That said, I do know people who have had quite different experiences...
One of the strengths of this film is that it strips away all rational explanation for Regan's behaviour until only the supernatural is left- the word 'exorcism' is only mentioned after an hour. The small things keep developing (rats in the attic, Regan's behaviour at the party) until we reach the true horror of her condition. And yet it's not just about Regan; this film is called 'The Exorcist' for a reason. The demon wants to get to Merrin to resume where they left off, telling Father Karras it would like an exorcism 'intensely' and yelling Merrin's name when he's entered downstairs... Visually and audibly it is compelling, with very little gore thrown about the place by some standards. (Alas! The projectile vomiting just doesn't cut the mustard!)And if you want to bring Christian attitudes to the film, that's fine, but you are not obliged to. You can view it on any number of levels. All in all, a fun film for all the family!
Exorcist II- Time for a confession. Had this film been any better, I'd have given the set four stars. However, I like bad films quite a lot, and Exorcist II is a failure both as a stand-alone film and put into context. It runs rampant over continuity (for example, it is discovered that Regan still has the demon inside her, completely negating the moving climax of the first film) and it is loaded with dodgy plot details, blatant symbolism, laughable dialogue and Richard Burton standing there sweating. I do not lie. He generally just stands there doing nothing but sweat.
