Ok so I'm a sucker for exorcism movies and I'm about to say something that most 'true' horror fans are going to cringe at - I disliked The Exorcist and it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Linda Blair is a complete douche in person. For its time it may have been scary but we are beyond that now so even as a classic, I'm not a fan. I just don't get the hype. That isn't to say that I don't recognize what the movie did for the horror film community - I just didn't like it.

This brings me to tonight's fare in Cherry's 31 Days of Horror. Sure. I just posted about a flick but I just watched another so deal with it or stop reading.

EXORCISMUS - I am not going to post the released synopsis - if you want to read it Google it. I fell the stated synopsis actually gives too much of the movie away. It's a standard exorcism movie but it's character driven and has an ending that matches the film unlike some others I could mention (The Last Exorcist) I'll admit to having issues with movie endings - they rarely make me happy. This one fit and for that I give it a 6 out of 8 cherries.

I also give it an extra half cherry for having the presence of mind as a British horror flick to include Doug Bradley in the cast. It may have been a short part but it was a nice surprise to see an old friend. :)
