I had a right laugh watching the Exorcist. Comedy gold.

I haven't seen this film since my younger years and I suspect much of the 'fear' was the mystery around it...before I disregarded stuff like that and the internet put many myths to bed (although tbf, it's probably created ten times the amount now).

Watched a bit last night and thought it had the amazing 70's cinema feel to it (you can also see where John Carpenter pinched some of the scenes in Halloween from....the prosaic early evening Halloween streets married with a piano motif and sound design).

Was it the more the 'demon/possessed' scenes which looked a little off?

I am currently 55 minutes into the Blair Witch Project (which I’ve never seen before) and so far it’s the most annoying film I’ve ever watched in my life. 55 minutes of three very annoying people, they’re so annoying I’m looking forward to something bad happening to them!

Come On You Witches!

The scary bit is all the snot, mate.

There's more snot.

Not much left to say in horror films these days, they have all been done to death. Unless someone comes up with an original idea like Get Out, but even that was more of a thriller than a horror. It Follows was great though, a neat idea and scary, but even that film ran out of steam in the final third.

Inclined to agree here.

As less an less people believe in ghosts, or as one goes through their own hellish life stories, horror films can be a bit 'meh'.
I think the older one are revered (such as John Carpenter) because they were just well made, low budget gems irrespective of the content or with added nostalgia.

Agree It Follows was cool mind.

In saying that, the Japanese horrors from a few years ago (Ring and Dark Water etc) were very much under the skin creepy.

I just find it funny in that people actually believe this shit happens. And that only Latin can solve it. Must have been awful.for exorcists before the Romans went for Latin. Utter crap. I agree that tje film is shot well etc, its just funny because people think its true. She can levitate, turn her yead around, but leather straps and the baws burst.
