    You gotta be impressed with a book that inspires a movie that managed to turn entire generations off of pea soup. Chris MacNeil is an actress who is filming a movie in Georgetown when her young daughter Regan starts to exhibit bizarre behavior, and since medical science fails to pro...

    Curiosity compels you to read this! THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS It was kinda hard to decide the rating on this novel. If I'd think only on the raw reading experience, I would say that it was a 3-star material. However, I had to ponder about the whole additional info ...

    A masterpiece...unqualified, unadulterated and unequaled. How better to describe the definitive, 40th Anniversary edition of one of THE classic horror novels of the 20th century...rendered in audio format and narrated with passion, verve and pitch-perfect delivery by William P...

    Having recently seen a film called The Last Exorcism, I decided it was finally time to read the first exorcism, the one which made masses of people interested in demonic posessions, scared the beejesus out of readers and was made into one of the best films ever. I've seen the film s...

    Satanic Panic in South Africa has its very own Wikipedia entry. Why? Because South Africans are notorious for finding evil under every stone. Toys, energy drinks, fantasy books and TV, certain sweets, music, films?. all are tools of the devil. It?s a free for all. Why is this...

    ?In our sleep, pain, which cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, come wisdom through the awful grace of God. --Aeschylus I get a wild hair every so often and recently I decided that I needed to go on a 1970s blockbuster...

    This is a really chilling and frightening story. There is nothing more powerful and engrossing than a story about a persons battle with their state of mind and Demons. In this frightening story you have a mother and her 12 year old daughters bond shaken, faced with a state of mayh...

    Boil it all down and The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty is about faith. There is the demonic possession of Regan McNeil and the horrors that are described as a part of that invasion, the night and day distinction between a young girl and the maniacal, infernal force that changed ...

    WIlliam Peter Blatty?s groundbreaking novel caused many waves at the time of its publication, though it is thought that the accompanying movie might have been even more controversial. I chose to embark on this journey, more out of curiosity than anything else. Knowing the premise, I ...

    THE EXORCIST is on quite a few of my favorite lists. I have read this book once before, and I own- and have watched the movie numerous times. This time I listened to the audio book. It is my favorite movie poster. It has one of my favorite "the making of" documentaries. It...

    The book started out slow and for the first half of the book there was no real "scare" factor. Most of the book was no one believing that the daughter Ragan was possessed, but instead that she just had some psychological problems which were causing her transformation of an innocent gir...

    The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty was released in 1971, we've all seen the subsequent film released in 1973, you might have read the book but an altogether different experience is guaranteed to scare the pants off you with the audiobook. Narrated by the author who won an Oscar for b...

    A very addictive read, with some strong creepy scenes and dialogs. I swear, while reading this I was watching the movie in my head, the scariest parts are very similar in the book and some descriptions about the Black Mass where, simply put, disturbing. If that's what you're looking fo...

    I?m not going to go too much into a review of this book. I?m sure most of you have seen the movie. If you found the movie scary, the book is more horrifying in some ways. I think it's because your imagination is in overdrive. There were scenes in the book that had me cringing, g...

    I think I'm ready. . . Help! Well, maybe I'm weird but I found the movie scarier than the book. Don't get me wrong, there are a few parts that gave me the heebie jeebies, but overall it didn't get me like the movie. Just getting the gifs for this freaking review had me all creep...

    This is my Book Of the Month- February 2017, with GR group- Horror Aficionados. I love watching horror movies and enjoy reading horror books even more. In horror genre, 'Ghost Stories' are my favorite genre and this book just 'Fit to a T'. Exorcist is one of the few horror movies...

    I am giving the book a rating of 4.5! Like most people I had watched the movie before reading the book. But, I had watched the movie so long back that I had forgotten most of it ? only remembered a few scenes. The novel has exceeded my expectations. It is not just a horror sto...

    It?s no surprise to me that this book was a very spiritual read for me. I knew, considering the topic, that this was going to come down to a showdown between light and dark, good and evil, God and Satan. In which case, there could only really be one clear outcome. But more on that l...

    El exorcista es, sin lugar a dudas, el libro más terrorífico que he leído. Recordemos que el miedo es subjetivo, y mi debilidad siempre han sido las posesiones satánicas. No me esperaba el análisis psiquiátrico ni las explicaciones psicológicas para enfrentarnos a las posibl...

    Not a genre I have explored before so there is nothing to compare this with, still I liked the book overall. The characters are good and the writing is even better. Thankfully I watched the movie ages ago, so i didn't remember anything at all, which probably acted as an added advantage...

    Such a classic. The writing is like popcorn, dialogue is realistic, the characters are likable while having unlikable characteristics, and there's plenty of moments that will either get under your skin or turn your stomach altogether (yes... that scene). Highly recommended! ...

    Strange as it may seem, I hadn't watched the film version of ''The Exorcist'' until last summer. I know, shame on me, but you see, I thought I wouldn't be able to take it seriously. I don't believe in possessions or devils or any of these things, although I love to read about them. Of ...

    What a fantastic and scary but fascinating book. The film with Linda Blair and Max Von Sydow was so far ahead of its time. I was just a young boy when the film was released and remember that there was heaps of controversy at the time. Ambulances and police were rushing to theatres beca...
