Consensus: The Exorcist has withstood the test of time, and it still has that renegade feel and the power to shock.

Peter Travers

there's something elemental about The Exorcist, even with the new hopeful ending that betrays the bleak original.

The new version's amendments, for the most part, are distracting and sometimes unintentionally funny.

It's a little longer and a little more concerned with story. Its bark has grown though, and there's still no serious challenger to its title of 'The Greatest Horror Movie Ever Made'.

I saw this version and found it a little better than the original, but the beginning is boring and confusing.
