While I agree that the effects in The Exorcist are corny and outdated, the thing that makes it frightening is that it actually happened to someone. That's what you've got to remember.

It was not enjoyable — but it shattered illusions I had over war. Seeing it was an unforgettable experience and has made me look at events like Remembrance Day in a new light. Never mind the recent outbreak of inane action movies. This may be horrific but it has a message.

The film of the year so far is the Dreamlife Of Angels. And how about some messages in films that have been ruined by scared producers? The best examples are Once Upon A Time In America and Betty Blue. The versions are masterpieces — not the cut versions shown at the cinema. They are rubbish by comparison.

THE LAST WORD Dear Big Screen, The Exorcist was available on video in the UK until 1984. I saw it in 1981. Other films banned at the same time include Driller Killer, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I Spit On Your Last House on the Left and Nightmares in a Damaged Brain. The film was withdrawn on the advent of the Video Recording Act c1984.

I've been researching The Exorcist for ages and I can tell you now that The Exorcist was released on UK video in 1979/80 and was outlawed under the Video Recordings Act 1986. Those of you who have written in saying 1984 don't have a clue! I'm open for arguments but there is no other right answer as I have the world's authority on my side. ——————————————————————————————————6/8—— Letter continued on next page>>>>> WIN A TRIP TO LAPLAND p465 Cinema Cinema On Stage Millennium
