“Friedkin’s most effective achievement wasn’t the technical wizardry (which was quite advanced for 1973), but the way he built the story with aching slowness; at first the demonic possession seems like childish willfullness. That and a first-rate cast including Ellen Burstyn, Lee J. Cobb, Max von Sydow, Jason Miller, and Jack McGowran — a fine Irish actor who died young, soon after filming — makes The Exorcist utterly superior to all other ’70s horror films. But if you’ve never seen it, remember this: People really did faint and run screaming from theaters when The Exorcist came out. If you are delicate, stay away.” – Baltimore City Paper
