    Foxy Brown
  • I’ve got many, many demons that affect me on many, many levels. A few years ago, I was convinced of that – I thought I truly was possessed by the devil. I remember sitting through the Exorcist a dozen times, saying to myself, ‘Yeah, I can relate to that. I really wish I knew why I’ve done some of the things I’ve done over the years. I don’t know if I’m a medium for some outside source. Whatever it is, frankly, I hope it’s not what I think it is – Satan.”

    Ozzy Osbourne
  • The ritual of exorcism is not practiced by an ordinary priest. An exorcist requires specific training and must be thought to have a personal sanctity. He can be exposed to dangerous behavior and personal threat. His prayers often cause a violent response as he attempts to shine a beam of light into the darkness.

    Gabriele Amorth
  • When you think of the “Exorcist” (1973) you think of Linda Blair and pea soup and all this madness, but really if you look at the first half of that film, the stuff between her and Ellen Burstyn is so naturalistic and so real.

    Matt Reeves
  • I never used to watch horror films because I was a nervous type. I believed all the publicity about The Exorcist when it was released – you know, all that nonsense about people fainting in the cinema – and decided it would definitely freak me out.

  • [Exorcist ] is given all of us a great opportunity to show something new on network TV, in terms of the quality of it. It feels much bigger than a network show.

    Alfonso Herrera
  • I feel very lucky to be part of this amazing show [Exorcist] with such an amazing cast of actors, with a really talented writer behind it all.

    Alfonso Herrera
  • I very much believe in things unseen, both of positive and destructive energy, and I have never seen The Exorcist through from start to finish. I find it too realistic, frankly, and too disturbing for me. I absolutely believe in spiritual warfare and have experienced it in my life. So I respect Mr. Friedkin’s extraordinary success with that, but it’s not a picture I’ll ever see.

    class="author">Ashley Judd
  • I dislike The Exorcist, and I found it a warning sign of the dangers in a furious cinematic talent putting the audience through it (a Hitchcock phrase) without purpose, or without the nagging moral anxiety that activated Hitch. You see, I don’t think William Friedkin believes in the Devil, or cares about him. I think he found exorcism a pretext for a gross-out and he calculated there was an audience for it, or a crowd ready to be challenged. Maybe I’m too much of an atheist to stand religion being so thrashed.

    Edward Jay Epstein
  • To me, the scariest movie ever made to this day is The Exorcist. It still scares the living hell out of me, and it’s because of the fantasy element. It’s the exorcism. It’s the Devil. It’s not a guy breaking into your house trying to torture you or cut your whatever off. Those kinds of movies don’t do it for me, and I don’t call them horror.

    Cassandra Peterson
  • Horror movies have never been my thing. I love psychological thrillers like The Exorcist, The Shining, even though they scare the living daylights out of me.

    Emmanuelle Vaugier
  • Personally I like the slow burn; I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. When I think about the movies that were most effective on me as a viewer I think of the original Haunting and the Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby, the Sixth Sense, the Others. These movies are not over the top at all, they are movies that rely on good story telling, good acting, good premise, good exposition and I want to stay true to that in future projects.

    Oren Peli
  • I’ve been playing the CNN Drinking Game, have you ever played that? Where you do a shot every time George Bush says the word “evil”? Oh, I’m a wreck! You gotta do a double shot every time he says “evildoers”. Chug the bottle for “axis of evil”. Are you a president or an exorcist?!

    Doug Stanhope
  • My daughter comes with me everywhere. I don’t leave her behind. But it is hard. I mean, I think any working mother will tell you that what kind of falls by the wayside, you know, are the hours of sleep that you wish you had, and all that. I feel incredibly lucky and blessed, but I do sometimes feel like that exorcist lady!

    Kate Beckinsale

  • I’m a huge fan of ‘The Exorcist.’

  • The Exorcist’ is amazing because it recognizes that silences can be as powerful as sound effects.

  • Exorcists always need to distinguish demonic possessions from mental or psychiatric disorders, and they use three symptoms to identify people as possessed. First, those people have the ability to see hidden sacred objects, which they always want removed. Second, they have an extraordinary physical strength. And third, they show an aversion to the sacred

    Oren Peli
  • I’ve had people appear in my life that have helped me. I had more fun. I approached it thinking how would Jack Nicholson, “How would he do it?” So that’s really what I did was I created this Gremlin character. So now people come up and they say ‘Oh The Exorcist!’.. and I’m like “Did you see Repossessed?” They say either no or yes or whatever, and I say look at this, have a laugh, and then go back and look at a masterpiece.

    Linda Blair
  • It’s a masterpiece [The Exorcist]. This is an honor. I know you may not think so, but it really is. How many movies in our lifetime? This is an honor.
