Is 'The Exorcist' the most frightening film ever made?
"The Exorcist" is one of those rare horror films to cross over into the mainstream, grossing more than $441 million worldwide. When it was released in 1973, it was a smash hit that absolutely terrified audiences—and made some moviegoers physically ill. The film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won two.
Sure, "The Exorcist" is scary, but some film critics argue vintage classics such as "Psycho," "The Omen, "or "The Shining" are more scary. Others cite modern horror gems like "Let The Right One In" and "The Ring" as equally if not more terrifying.
unpopular opinion: the omen is way scarier than the exorcist
