ATTENTION AMY, DEVIN, LISTENERS: THE EXORCIST is an American masterpiece from arguably the greatest era of Hollywood filmmaking: the 1970s. It became a cultural phenomenon, raking in millions at the box office before earning 10 Academy Award nominations (2 wins), including Best Picture (a first for what most consider to be a horror film). It towers over both the horror genre and the landscape of New Hollywood as a major landmark. THE EXORCIST deserves its place in The Canon... Do we all agree?
All you need to do is watch the trailer to understand why this movie is ideal for HDTGM: It has the things that make 70 movies great: the ex-football player in Rosey Grier, 70s racial cliches, terrible action sequences involving cop cars and motorcycles, and the director moving up from porn. Seriously, watch this trailer and you will understand.
