The Excorcist

I watched the Excorcist in its entirety for the first time yesterday. I had seen bits and pieces of it before but I hadn’t received the full effect until I watched it all at once. I can see why the film caused such hysteria when it was first released. The good/evil dichotomy, which is rarely seen in this culture where disbelief is the norm, rised up to powerful heights in this film.

This movie evokes such emotional reactions because:

1) The girl looked kind of out of it when she peed on the floor in front of company. Of course this was probably more disturbing for the maid than it was for the mother.

2) What can be more incongruous than an innocent little girl and Satan?

3) The masturbating with the crucifix part was too jabby and blood ended up getting everywhere. That was kind of gross.

4) After the girl screamed “FUCK ME!!!!” to the priest, I thought she was going to follow that by saying “YOU FREAKING DEMOCRAT!!” I dunno, must have watched “American History X” one too many times.

5) The nightmare the priest had about his dead mom yelling at him from the subway and then going back down below was kind of sad. It reminded me of the time my grandmother called me to tell me she was having a heart attack and I was like but hold on, it’s the fourth quarter (rest her soul btw).

6) The girl levitated. That was kind of not usual.

I would like to add that, while this movie was indeed scary, I actually was able to turn off the lights last night (albeit, after I had already slept like 4 hours with them actually on.) All in all, it was an entertaining flick, particularly since it began with a Muslim calling the adhan (call to prayer) in the Iraq scene.

I also picked up some good ideas for Ken and Dave to throw holy water on me to help me stop hitting top on the shots I need to get draw on.
