Great British Chiller Series, 13 Feb. 2014
Having seen 'the Exorcism' as a boy in the UK In 1970's, I was eager to revisit a programme which I had found wonderfully scary at the time; I was not disappointed. Don Taylor's script whilst plainly making a political point about the evils of poverty and capitalism, continues to thrill with its famous and disturbing images. The dialogue, fashions, and special effects all show their age but equally the play is a reminder of how television used to be able to produce such cerebral and stylish thrillers with conviction and regularity.
