    Yeah for sure. Too bad they’re not so keen on letting the discussions cover all the material. Eh. What do we want for free anyway.

    Yes. It was my first year at college and a bunch of went. Strangely, the scene that bothered me most was her getting needles stuck in her by doctors , as I remember; probably the most routine, normal thing that happened in the whole movie!

    Oh yeah? Maybe I just missed it consciously in the original but was still subconsciously freaked out by it. Definitely caught it in the Director's cut...:confused::lol:

    Yes indeed. Far worse monsters exist in real life (praying) preying on the vulnerable.

    One of the reasons the film affects so many people at the visceral level is the soundtrack. For example, there are several scenes in the film where the Foley team added the sound of bees buzzing in a hive. They heavily masked it via EQ to bury it in the ambient noise. You cannot consciously hear it, but it is subconsciously perceived and it gets the "run away!" juices flowing in the brain.

    I don't find The Exorcist that scary. Sue me!

    The Devil Rides Out though...scares the heck outta me! I have it on DVD but can't bring myself to put it on.

    Oh good grief don't you go gettin' all philosophical, that'd just be the last straw. I had to switch my day of mowing you know, that's enough change for one week!

    I think this guy is more scary than any of that other stuff that's been talked about.

    I liked the end scene where they pulled the mask of the devil, and he was really Old Man Stevens.

    "...And I would've gotten away with it--if it hadn't been for you meddling kids and that mangy dog!"



    People sure love their superstitions--even when it scares the wee-wee out of 'em.

    I remember my younger sister and her friends seeing it in the theater.14-15 yrs old then.They were freaked out! One had to keep the light on at night for a few days. Very well directed. Always shows on top of horror film ratings
