This is an absolute classic. You have to watch the version with additional footage as the original author intended. Our mother can’t even watch this movie, she saw it for the first time when she was 13 and hasn’t been the same since lol. There is little to nothing wrong with this movie. After all these years it still holds up really well without any ridiculous ploy or plot device. Great story with memorable dialogue though may offend some lol. Solidly creepy throughout the entire movie and not afraid to push the limits in a completely meaningful way. Tubular Bells is some of the best movie music ever! Incredible effects, especially for 1973. My sister thinks Father Karras is kinda hot but she is weird like that haha. The end is kinda sad but not without it’s hope for a new start, the part where Regan sees the priests collar and kisses him is beautifully done.

All in all we have nothing bad to say, i could go on about how great the relationship is between mother and daughter and how real it feels. The fact that the movie makes us fall for multiple characters and never leaves us bored. The performances are stellar all around from main characters to supporting cast. Tara gave it a 91/100 and i gave it a 92/100.

About DJVoorhees13

I don't believe in long winded reviews. I love Jason Voorhees. My favorite Friday is Friday 4: The Final Chapter (even though it isn’t), but I even like Friday 5: A New Beginning. I know the killer is not technically Jason, but you gotta love little Reckless and the blonde woman who keeps throwing him around. My guilty pleasures are Return of the Living Dead Parts 1 – 3. I know they’re not everyone’s favorites, but I can watch them over and over again with no reprieve. I also happen to think that Return of the Living Dead 3 characters Julie and Curt have one of the greatest love story ever told. When I’m not watching horror movies, I’m usually watching old TV shows or reading books/comics. Currently watching Star Trek: Voyager and reading anything by Dante Alighieri.
