For me, this is still the scariest movie.
Again, I was maybe a bit too young to see this when I first saw it. The Exorcist is disturbing in so many levels. As an adult watching it again, you notice things that didn’t strike as so disturbing as they did when you were a kid. Especially that crucifix masturbation scene where the demon says “let Jesus fuck you”. Now when you see it you’re like, “wow, that’s a bit much”. I probably didn’t even notice it when I was a kid, I was mostly freaked out by the elderly people crawling on the ceilings.
Go see it if you haven’t already. And don’t forget to check out Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells, that theme song is one of the best out there.
And the speed paint video:
