An Exorcist Remake?

Exorcist-SmallThis story has not yet been confirmed, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s true. One of the readers at IESB sent the site rumored news about the possibility of a remake to the movie deemed by many as the ‘scariest movie of all time.’

IESB gives us this:

News out of this past weekend’s International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival at the Harkins Centerpoint Theatre in Tempe-Linda Blair, there to introduce ‘THE EXORCIST,’ hinted that a remake of the film is in the works….and judging by the look on her face, she’s not happy about it.

I almost didn’t post this story, because I feel the need to boycott the never-ending remake craze! Granted, I don’t know how legit this news is. I’ve been to a Linda Blair panel in Toronto at a horror convention, and the only things she talked about were goddamn dogs, so any news taken from a Linda Blair panel, I take with a grain of salt. (So you guys can breathe for now) Although, like I said before…it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Warner Bros decided to remake ‘The Exorcist.’. Hollywood, stop REMAKING CLASSICS!!! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix IT!!

    This film is a horror classic!! There is no way a remake will be better than the original. This film is fine just as it is. It has its place in history as “The Scariest Movie of All Time”, let’s just leave it that way. In my opinion, it is a masterpiece. But, Hollywood probably will make a remake once the Author has passed on. There is not way he would let a remake be made while he (William Peter Blatty) is still alive. STOP REMAKING THE CLASSICS!!! LEAVE THIS FILM ALONE!!!

    I hate all these remakes. I must disagree with the poster who so loved The Changeling, that movie disappointed the heck out of me when I watched it a few weeks ago. It was not at all frightening.

    I do not agree with most of the opinions I read on this blog. I think that warner bros could do a bang up job on a remake of this classic. It seems like it takes alot more these days to fulfill everyones horror hunger. it absolutely takes better special effects
    I say go for it warner brothers and feed the need. I know it will be another box office smasher. Oh just for the casting, Linda Blair probably should be left out of the running for a cameo appearance. She had her turn.

    I’m so bored of these remakes now. They are completely ruining the classics that came before them and desensetising me from horror flicks even more than i already was… because they are crap!
