Heading into the Halloween season, our latest premium podcast explores the odd film franchise that was built around what is arguably the scariest movie of all time. With a pair of strange, unconventional sequels and two different prequels shot from essentially the same script, there is a lot to discuss as we face our fear of demonic possession and locust suits. Central debates include the role of faith and underlying Christian mythology, the directorial skill required for jump scares, and the questionable acting chops of both Linda Blair and George C. Scott. So is The Exorcist II a cinematic abortion or is it merely misunderstood? Has Paul Schrader’s prequel been getting a free pass from critics? Is The Exorcist still terrifying after all these years? Click below to grab this month’s premium podcast… the power of Christ compels you.
