Actually the Exorcist has quite a few!
Quite a few! None of which I can quote. Except an easy one-
(when both priests arrive at the house) "MEEERRIIINNNN!!!!"
creepy

And in ExorcistIII, a lesser film though better than II, there was a scene or two with Brad Douriff that absolutely gave me the creeps. And that's not easy to do.

I felt the exact same way. Brad Dourif did his role well, and yeah, when he started getting all roary with his demonic tirades, yeah, it did send a couple chills up my spine.


It was also good seeing Jason Miller reprising his role as Karras.

Did you know that George C. Scott was originally intended to be Lt. Kinderman in the original Exorcist? He was busy with Patton at the time though. Cool that he got to play the role he was originally asked to play in ExIII.

Yes it was good to have Miller back

And no I didn't know that about Scott. But it worked out so well. We got two great performances from two great actors. Thanks for that bit of info Martok. I'm something of a film trivia buff.

But Douriff. I'd seen him before but that performance made me a fan so I more than pleased to have him join the Star Trek family.

You're welcome, Metal Beastie. I usually just stumble across the info myself...and so I am more than happy to share when the opportunity arises.

I think George C. Scott was doing Patton at the time The Exorcist was filming, so he was unavailable. Lee J. Cobb did a great job nonetheless. So while they didn't get George C., they did get another actor who uses an initial as part of their star name.

Yeah, Brad Dourif plays a lot of shady characters...and even does comedy well....if you've seen "Amos and Andrew", you know whereof I speak. He had a good role in "Voyager" also. So yeah, I'm glad to have him in the Star Trek family.

My other favorite role from Dourif is Piter DeVries, Mentat Assassin for Baron Vladimir Harkonnen in the 1984 adaptation of DUNE.

"You are stronger than us. But soon, I think they be stronger than you."

This simple line had a chilling effect and was proven true during the rest of the movie..and it's sequels.

The tv spot for this movie creeped me out way back in '78 and still sends a chill down my spine. The dummy says the following lines:



The actual movie wasn't nearly as creepy.
