  1. Do the Poltergeist sequels.

  2. the notorious white moth

    ..who makes a sequel to a movie they don’t like? …Apparently the guy behind Zardoz.

  3. The intro scene of clips reminded me some of What Ever Happened to Rosemary’s Baby. I believe a disco or wherever those pesky kids listen to their “music” was involved briefly.

  4. Looks like James Earl Jones in the locust costume is getting ready for his role in Conan the Barbarian.

  5. …I actually sat through this on TV once, thinking it was going to get scary at some point.

    I forgot that I had actually stuck it out for the whole thing until just now! o.0 Blech!

  6. I can’t believe I’m the first one here to mention that The Nostalgia Critic already reviewed this film in his conclusion of Nostalgia-Ween 2011.

  7. Damn it Snob, stop being so funny or I’ll suffer a heart attack…again!

  8. Professor von SCIENCE!!!

    Tripping balls the movie.

  9. Girl: “I-I-I-I-‘m aut-aut-ti-tit-tis-tic.”

    Me: And yet you’re looking Regan right in the eye. I think you may need a new doctor there, lass. That, or you’re just a shitty actor.

    • I’d add that this was 1977, people didn’t know much about autism at the time…

      • To be honest they don’t know even now. There is many type of autism, and not everyone has such problems.

          I myself have autism,the other channel awesome producer marzgurl has odd (I think cause in her seeing sentai video she said she was an ocd type of character),and many other people have disabilities like me so your not the only one.

    • What was actually happening in that scene was that Regan was somehow curing the girl’s autism via her aura of goodness or somesuch. So, her making eye-contact with Regan actually makes a weird sort of sense.

  10. Wait? Weird machine in shady psychotherapist room and crappy Sci-Fi? This is job of Scientology church!

    Don’t feel like a perv brad I’m pretty sure other men at this site were looking at Linda Blair nicely. I actually also laughed at some of Richard Burton’s liners because they were said with such delivery that I’d bet you laughed too. But otherwise this was a good review and I hear another explotation review from you coming soon. May I suggest Prison Girls plz.

      Also Doug did review this but it isin’t as close as the review bargain boy did for sneak king about 1 week and 4 days ago while ypomarz did it on January 21st.

  12. PAZUZU.

    I had such a girlcrush on grown up Linda Blair the first time I saw this. I also remember being really annoyed they didn’t even try to explain why she’s 16 and vulnerable to possession and yet they let her live virtually on her own. After the hell they went through in the first movie it made zero sense to me that her mother would leave her alone again for long periods of time. I did love the sets though.

    The other thing is the building edge shots used to give me panics. They were honestly the scariest parts of the movie for me as a kid.

    Great, most comprehensive review of this movie I’ve ever watched. Really enjoyed it <3

  13. Don’t worry, Snob. Linda Blair was eighteen when this movie was made.

    Zardoz!

    Wait…. didn’t Doug already do this one?

  16. There ! Between 15:50 and 15:52, there’s a guy pushing on some kind of stuffed animal’s butt.

    Truly, the high point of that scene.

  17. God, I just LOVE “What The FUCK, Hollywood?!”

  18. God damn is this movie awkwardly loud and abnoxious.
