I don't care if people think this is overrated to me it's a perfect film and definitely one of the scariest films I've ever seen after each time I watch it I can't get it out of my head for days and that's a type of film you have to treasure

I finally saw the fukcing EXORCIST movie. After the hell the Scary Maze Game gave me for about 9 yrs, (I was 9 at the time now I'm 18) I ve finally overcame my fear of the movie and decided to watch it on NETFLIX before they take it down.

Great dialogue, great performances, great sets and art direction. Although, the first 45 minutes go nowhere and is pretty disjointed!
