No Trick, Just Treats: Your Top 5 Horror Films For Halloween 2012


Linda Blair William Shatner Jamie Lee Curtis

Is the thought of sharpening your elbows to grab the last palette of over-priced face paint at the local supermarket is simply too much to handle? Do you need a DVD to put on REALLY LOUDLY so that you simply don’t hear the hordes of trick or treaters knocking on your door? Here’s our top five scary movies to put on this evening.

1. The Exorcist (1973). Yeah, we know, it’s an obvious one… but that’s because it’s a classic! Even now, in 2012, with all of the advances in film technologies, CGI, etc, The Exorcist remains of of the most terrifying horror movies of all time. Even the less obvious moments, when young Regan says to the astronaut (who is a guest in her parents’ house) “you’re gonna die up there,” are spine-chilling. And talking of spines, we’re not entirely sure how Linda Blair (who plays Regan) actually managed to survive those terrifying convulsion scenes. Even if you’ve seen it before, it’s worth visiting again – you’ll always spot something you missed the first ten times…

'The Exorcist' Actress Linda Blair Discusses Her Relationship With Rick James


Linda Blair Rick James

Academy Award nominated actress, Linda Blair, has taken time to talk about her relationship with musician Rick James during the 1980s, in the years since his passing. During her talk, Blair confessed how the relationship was troubled, and ultimately doomed, by James' steadily growing cocaine habit. Blair, the little girl Regan from 1973's 'The Exorcist', recounts that she was only 22 years old when she saw a photograph of Rick James in a magazine and instantly fell for him.

Despite her unwillingness to go into much detail about the relationship, it is known that Blair and James dated for two years. As part of a new documentary 'Rick James: Behind the Music Remastered', Blair discusses the soul legend, stating: "I wouldn't say that we were as romantic as people probably wished that we were, or thought that we were."

The 1983 funk song, 'Cold Blooded', was written by James in his own description of their relationship. Blair was pleased with the idea, yet a little confused by the wording. "Cold Blooded is, 'You're hot!' Cold Blooded is a compliment. That was pretty nice that he wrote that about me. I don't see it, but OK" she said.

Exorcist II: The Heretic Review


Unbearable
Er, what's that? You didn't understand the intricacies of Exorcist II: The Heretic? What an idiot you are! You've got Linda Blair as a teenager, under hypnosis for most of the movie. You've got James Earl Jones as an African tribal leader. You've got "the good locusts." And you've got Richard Burton as a priest who opens up the whole can of demons afresh! Total, utter nonsense with a bad dub job. Stick with the original, or the next sequel if you must.

Summer of Fear Review


Unbearable
After The Exorcist, Linda Blair tried to make herself into a scream queen and never once succeeded at it. Summer of Fear is just one of her bottom-of-the-barrel horror films (originally a TV movie called Stranger in Our House), concerning a witch who moves into poor Linda's house in the guise of a newly orphaned cousin looking for sanctuary.

The Exorcist Review


Extraordinary
Green vomit. Unnatural head twisting. Unlikely use of a crucifix. These images from William Friedkin's The Exorcist have become so memorable, so iconic, that they almost carry an air of humor (even spoofed by Linda Blair herself in 1990's Repossessed). They're no longer just parts of the movie, they are the movie. But now that Warner Bros. has given the film a Friedkin-enhanced re-release, it's time to see The Exorcist again as a complete film, beginning to end, with the gory details intact and in context. The result is that 27 years after its controversial release, The Exorcist is nothing short of a taut, American classic.

People may forget that The Exorcist, recently screened at the Boston Film Festival and now hitting wide re-release, was a wildly independent movie when that particular movement was really getting in gear. Shocking and blasphemous-beyond-words in 1973, the story of a sweet little girl's demonic possession still has a renegade feel today -- the introductory exposition takes nearly forty minutes, the use of profane language is disgusting and thrilling, even by today's standards, and the long battle at the film's end is relentless.

The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen Review


OK

It's been 26 years since "The Exorcist" raised the bar for horror movies, trading more on its chilling psychological effects than its ability to provide cheap spooks.

Because its story of a 12-year-old girl (Linda Blair) possessed by the devil quarries so deeply in the viewer's psyche, it remains more frightening than any teenage slasher flick (save, perhaps, the original "Halloween") -- even if it has become every-so-slightly campy with age.

The newly remastered print being released this month under the idiotic title of "The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen" is padded with cutting room floor footage and souped up with a digitally enhanced soundtrack and sound effects -- much of which actually distracts from the film's classic scariness.
