    I wonder if the '73 version is purchasable in a brick-and-mortar store like Movie Stop or only off of Warner Archives on Youtube? Wonder when they started doing that?

    The Shining did not scare me . . .The Exorcist did and still does. It's the only movie that ever really has. Sure, there are some that make me wonder, WTF! . . .but that's about it . . .The Exorcist SCARES me.

    Pretty much my feelings as well. A lot to be said for a movie that's been copied to still outclass anything since.......

    Although I'm going to try to see The Conjuring soon, the guys I listen to on the radio say that is really scary too......

    For me, the Shining movie is absolute ****. It butchered the book which is a masterpiece. I remember watching it when I was 8 years old and even then I wasn't scared. Last week, I decided to refresh my memory since I was reading Doctor sleep and I almost reached out and chocked Wendy. The Wendy in the movie is NOTHING like the character. it's like comparing an empty vase to a full one. Period.

    I liked the movie on its own merit - yes it was a poor adaptation of the book, yet still had an eerie atmosphere.

    Correct. In the movie what does she do except scream whenever she has an oppurtunity

    I worry about the inner workings of anyone who says they don't find the Exorcist scary. Those people I tend to give a wide berth when they come near me. :icon_eek:

    I thought the book was much scarier than the movie. When it first came out in the 70s it was very shocking back then. Now I think there is a lot more cult/Satan/evil junk out there and people are starting to get acclimatized or immune to it, which is actually quite sad.
