A film worth rewatching again and again, regardless of how many times I've seen this picture it still awakes feelings of dread, horror and awe. Blatty's script spoke to us questioning our takes on faith, evil and psychiatry and truly provided horror in the true sense of the term. A crime this didn't win the oscar that year (The Sting really?). So many classic images on display here yet never have a favorite one.
