Comments The Exorcist

  • Paul Bryant

    BFI Modern Classics are beautiful little 100 page books. Every home should have several. This one takes us through the creation and making of one of the all time insane gonzo gross-out projectile vomiting head turning right round crucifix masturbating horror movies, and many intriguing facts are uncovered and theories booted about, but the Elephant in the Room is left disturbingly unmolested, to wit:did Blatty (author of the novel and the screenplay), Friedkin (director) and Mark Kermode (writer [...]


  • Mike Lester

    Another in the amazing line of BFI film criticism books, this bad little mofo by Mark Kermode has been updated to include material on the recent "version you've never seen" abomination. More on that later. When The Exorcist first hit theaters in 1973 it was a revelation. Nothing like it had ever been seen before. The fact that it was reportedly based on a true story made the phenomenon that much more potent. I can remember my parents coming home from a night out at the movies and telling the bab [...]


  • Bryan Cebulski

    A good book about the production history of The Exorcist. Fascinating look at how Blatty and Friedkin's competing visions actually created something much better (if kinda jagged) than either could have made on their own. Disappointingly, lacks much analysis of the narrative though.


  • Kevin

    One of the greatest American films of all time gets the deluxe analytical treatment viz Mark Kermode, who has an obvious passion for Friedkin and his art. This, the third edition of the book, was re-published to include depth on the newest cut of the film- "The Version You've Never Seen"; this revision is probably my favorite part of this text, particularly a bonus interview attached to the end which finds Friedkin and Blatty discussing the good and the bad about the new cut.With this film there [...]


  • Peter

    Brilliant analysis of The Exorcist movie by an obsessed fan and film critic.


  • Jon

    Fans of the film should certainly read this. Film and horror people will also benefit from Kermode's contributions. The book largely follows and draws on the history and creation of the film rather than pushing critical & theoretical examination. This is a fair approach, and the criticism and cultural components Kermode does offer are concise and illuminating--good entry points for those perhaps new to the discussion regarding this important film.I appreciate how Kermode juggles the challeng [...]


  • Karen

    This is about the scariest movie ever, in my humble opinion. I've never actually watched it all the way through, and just reading Kermode's appreciation of it freaked me out for a few nights. I didn't find Kermode's reading of this movie as enjoyable as I found Sean French's The Terminator, but that may be because The Exorcist isn't a movie as near and dear to my heart. Still, it's always interesting to read about the behind-the-scenes bickering and deal-cutting that gets a movie made, and there [...]


  • Scott

    Having read the BFI book for Silence of the Lambs for a class last semester, I came to this book expecting the same sort of critical insight that I enjoyed from SoL version. However, it's worth noting that this book's critical insight into the movie itself is fairly basic as Kermode chooses to focus on the behind the scenes effects and production of how the movie was made, especially how the director and original writer came to deciding what went into the film. For those of us who have seen both [...]


  • Michelle

    Like Lieutenant Kinderman, I love movies. I love to discuss - to 'critique', as he says so superbly. 'The Exorcist' is one of my favourite movies - if not my absolute favourite - of all time. And, as seasoned a horror movie buff as I am, I still can't watch it with the lights off. Yes, it scares the crap out of me, and I've seen it - well, let's just say it's a lot. I love all the mystique surrounding the movie and it's various version, and this book delves deeper into that. This is Kermode at h [...]


  • Mamoon Ahmed

    Mark Kermode has never hidden his love for this film. But it is a brilliant achievement that he has managed to convey his admiration for the film into such a fascinating breakdown/analysis. Anyone who has seen the film should read this. Anyone who hasn't watched it should read this and then watch the film.


  • Suzydumeur

    Très intéressant pour découvrir toutes les anecdotes de tournage, et surtout l'opinion de Friedkin sur son propre film qu'il revisionne complètement.


  • Käte-marie

    Wasn't very scary, but good book


  • Kimberly

    This was a great book. Much better than the movie. The characters are much more developed, especially in the early storyline.


  • Kyle Burley

    Excellent monograph by Mark Kermode, about his favourite movie. A skillful combination of critical analysis and fanboyish enthusiasm.


  • Ryan Splenda

    Mark Kermode does a wonderful job of explaining SOME of the deeper meanings in horror's greatest film. His style is clean and informative. This exploration into my favorite movie is well done.
