The history genre is full of monsters, both human and otherwise, horrific events, and chilling scenarios that thrill us, scare us, keep us on the proverbial edge of our seats, and stick around to haunt our nightmares long after we leave the theater. Lets have a look on some of the top horror movies of all time…

THE EXORCIST

In late 1973 and early 1974, men and women were lined up on blocks. Some fainted. Some ran out of the theater in tears. You will find reports of people having to become institutionalized, and at least one miscarriage has been attributed to viewing it.

The very first time I had heard of something called The Exorcist was about late night television once the writer, William Peter Blatty, was a guest on The Tonight Show. The conversation centered around how horrible a number of the things in the publication were. I had observed the novel listed on The New York Times Bestseller List, and it appeared as if it might remain there indefinitely. After having been to the waiting list for what seemed like an eternity at the local library, I was finally able to obtain a copy.

And yes, because it’s time it had been filled with gut wrenching details of what occurs when for some unexplained reason; an innocent girl is possessed by Satan. While reading the book I was convinced that if it ever made its way to film, most of the details will certainly be either ‘cleaned up’ or omitted altogether. As you know the film was made and it spared the movie going public certainly nothing in the way of details.
