This was the prequel originally planned and shot before studio fuckery led to a new film being reshot and released in 2004 – Exorcist: The Beginning. When that bombed, this was resurrected and released a year later to not much interest either. If you’ve seen the 2004 version, this one is probably a little more fleshed out while focusing lesser on the horror aspects.

I found the opening scene unbearably suspenseful. This was originally to be directed by John Frankenheimer but he died a few weeks before filming was scheduled to begin. He could have made this script work; he would have been able to wring such suspense from it. Also, the film’s financing was cut off before all of the CGI effects could be completed, which is why they look like shit.

Surprisingly, it was better than the 3rd movie, I’m not sure if it was better than the 4th, maybe I have to watch that one again, but aside from the shitty special effects, this one was less boring than I remember the 4th being. I guess the list from worst to best goes:

5- Exorcist III (awful)
4- Exorcist the beginning (boring)
3- This one (boring most of the time but had some entertaining parts)
2- Exorcist II: The Heretic (good)
1- The Exorcist (very good)

Deliberately provoking someone online must be so appealing and habitual to many, enhanced by the fact that this site is accessible to unknown identities galore.
Your self-conceit is gluttonous and some of you cut off your nose to spite your face. Nobody gives a fuck about dignity, you’re all too focused upon your arrogance, misguided slothful allusions and the pack-mentality that you created.
I choose not to partake in your highly opinionated, aggressive and extremely abusive mannerisms. You’ll come undone on your own.

I am the first to comment. Absolute crap, not even scary and does not have the atmosphere of a good horror movie. A cheap knock off of the original. Meh.
