Why you need to watch The Exorcist. A quickie review.
The Exorcist Sypnosis
Caught in the middle of the two priests is the RANCE family, who are members of Tomas’ parish. On the surface, they’re a normal, American family, but all is not as it seems in this household. The patriarch, HENRY RANCE (Alan Ruck, “Spin City,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), is recovering from a traumatic injury. Eldest daughter KATHERINE (Brianne Howey, SCREAM QUEENS) has become a recluse who refuses to leave her room. Her younger sister, CASEY (Hannah Kasulka, “The Fosters”), thinks she’s hearing strange noises coming from inside the walls. And mother ANGELA (Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Geena Davis, “Commander in Chief,” “Thelma & Louise”) believes there is something in the house, a demonic presence, growing stronger by the day. Desperate, she begs Father Tomas for help, unwittingly setting the naïve young priest on a collision course with Father Marcus. Separately, each faces an insurmountable task, but together they become the Rances’ only hope against an evil force that has been mobilizing for centuries.
Geena Davis’ lips are so voluptuous and her voice so seductive, but what stands out even more is her talent.
Sexy priests and men with accents. Nuff Said.
Is there an exorcism in the first episode? Yes. Is it scary? Hell yes.
New take on a old classic
Its not a remake it’s a retake – a understudy. FOX is putting a modern twist on the horror classic.
I didn’t think I’d be saying this, but I’m curious to watch next week’s episode to see what happens.
