Has this film lost its ability to shock since it was released 40 years ago? Can it really still be classed as the scariest movie ever made?

In my opinion yes and no. Maybe I'm desensitised after seeing it a few times, it certainly shocked me when seeing it for the first time and that was a good 20 years after initial release, mainly due to it being banned for so long in the UK.

As for being the scariest movie ever, I think not. I'm an atheist so I struggle to find the idea of demonic possession scary. I will say that what gives this movie gravitas is how realistically the situation is handled. The performances are of a high standard especially the two leads.

Nominated for many Oscars including Best Picture, Director, Actor and Actress which it was never going to win due to the controversial religious tones, it picked up best adapted screenplay for William Peter Blatty. We have very recently had a number of Exorcism horror flicks and none of them even come close to this classic.

Great movie and easily ranks alongside "The French Connection" as Friedkin's best work.

The transfer......................

Warner Brothers have granted this movie with a VC-1 encoded, 1.78:1 framed, 1080p transfer onto a 50GB Blu-ray disc.

The restoration is quality with no white popping or scratches evident.

Videophiles rejoice and grain haters beware, this movie has an abundance of wonderful filmic grain. Having both the Director and Cinematographer involved in both the restoration and transfer means we have very little digital artifacting. Remember these guys understand film and grain is a by-product of film, it's supposed to look every bit like it does on these two discs, and it looks fantastic.

Detail is fantastic whether it be skin textures, objects, foreground or background. Outlines are sharp and lifelike. The darks are wonderfully inky and are a massive improvement on previous DVD releases.

Edge enhancement has been utilised on a few moments which results in some very slight haloing but this is very infrequent. We do not suffer any compression issues throughout.

This is by far the best its ever looked. The Colour timing was handled by cinematographer Owen Roizman and the contrast is spot-on. Colours are vibrant and strong, some scenes rank up there with the best ever transfers for a 40 year old movie.

Fantastic.

Movie 5/5 Transfer 4.5/5 so nearly perfect.

Highly recommended.
