Exorcist: The Beginning Review [19 Dec 2004|11:42am]

iluvangelina
So the big question that is on everyone's mind is is the long awaited prequel of The Exorcist as horrid as Alien vs. Predator? Well I can answer that question with all honestly, and I say not at all. Exorcist: TB isn't a great movie by any means but it's not a bad movie, nor is it a disaster like AVP. I sat on the edge of my seat while watching Exorcist: TB, the movie's blood and guts left my mouth watering especially after being deprived of the much needed gore in AVP . My constant mentioning of AVP should be noted on the similarities shared among the two films...That being that they are/were both heavily publicized movies that belong to noteworthy franchises, however, both suffered a bombardment of negativity that surfaced near the films' respectable openings

The film tells the story of the early days of Father Merrin, he comes face to face with evil in the form of Nazi soldiers. Soon after a rather horrific ordeal with them, he loses all faith in people and especially his faith in God. He becomes an archaeologist and is soon approached to participate in an archaelogical excavation of a buried church. Merrin travels to Kenya, where he is haunted by the evils of the war, but those evils compare little in comparison to the ones he's about to face, the devil himself. Exorcist: The Beginning is a haunted and wild ride which will at times have you looking away at the screen while during others you'll find it impossible to look away.

One thing I have to get out of the way is this movie isn't the Exorcist. It is but it isn't. Don't go into the film expecting it to be just as frightening and shocking as the original because, let's face it, no movie is ever going to come as close to the origin of fear as the Exorcist did. This film however, is entertaining, frightening, hell, it's even a bit disturbing. Some of the images which appear on the screen are extremly graphic, and are definitley not for those with weak stomachs. Aware that Exorcist: TB would be rated R,Warner Brothers was smart, and exploited the R-rating like there's no tomorrow.

When going into this film, I couldn't help but expect it to be horrible. First, it's a remake, I mean remake as in the first one went straight to hell and isn't ever going to see the light of day in a movie theater. Paul Schrader had filmed the Exorcist film and when he submitted it to Morgan Creek, the owners of the Exorcist franchise, they fired him immediatley. They had said that the film was not the all-out-gore-fest that they wanted but, instead Schrader had defended his film by saying it was never meant to be, that it was more of a psychological drama. Another thing which was a bit fishy about the film was the fact that they had canceled all of the critics screenings which is usually a hint that we better sound the sirens, head into our bomb shelters we purchased during the Y2K scare and prepare for a Gigli to hit. This film was not that at all.

Looking back on the film I think that Morgan Creek ultimately made the right choice by re-shooting the film, you don't go into a movie like the Exorcist to watch a boring dialog driven movie, without a drop of blood. You go into expecting to be shocked, to leave you in awe of what you just witness, and to even question faith in our lives. There are many moments in the film which truly bring back the essence of the original, that feeling where you look to the person next to you, and you sit up straight and you say to yourself, Holy f*ck, this isn't right. I sat in the theater the entire time, waiting for the Exorcism to take place because that why I went to see the film, to see the devil possess a little girl. Exorcist The Beginning isn't a very thought-provoking movie but it was never meant to be, this is by far the best of the lackluster Exorcist sequels, and it will leave you running to the local video store renting the original.

3 1/2 out of 5 duckies.

Well, I love horror movies, though I haven't seen many of them. However, of the ones I've seen, I love The Exorcist the most. It didn't scare me, but, being Christian, it made me think about what the Church really believes in. It made me think, "Wow, this can really happen... the Devil can really possess a mortal..." That fact really scared me more than the movie itself. Sure, after seeing the extra features on "The Version You've Never Seen", I realized that the special effects were truly... cheesy, but then again, it was the 70's. Just think what this new Exorcist movie is going to be like! It's going to be INSANE with all the technilogical advances this world has gone through since the 70's, whenever it was made.

Anyways, hope to get some new friends in this community! <3, Cate.
