RE: The Exorcist, I saw the Exorcist in 1973 or 1974 in a theater, whenever it came out. There had never been a film like it before, with that kind of special effects. It was just horrifying. Of course, I was 17 at the time too. It is very frightening but may not be as exciting as some of the slasher flicks today. Kids were not de-sensitized to violence and horror like they are today. We were more innocent and pure as far as visual entertainment goes. No cable or internet or computers, another world. The Exorcist gets to you in the core of your being. Or did me. It was also rumored that there were single frames of rotting flesh inserted in the film that the viewer was not conscience of but that was like a subliminal message. It was to make the viewer uneasy, but not allow them to really know why. Could be an urban legend, don't know. Also, there are sequels. The first Exorcist is what you are looking for....Diane
