Paul Schrader and William Peter Blatty Band Against Harlin?

If you head on over to the Independent, you can read a very interesting interview with Paul Schrader about his version of Exorcist: The Beginning. In the interview he claims that he saw Renny Harlin’s version with William Peter Blatty and they both disliked it, citing, “Everything is now so driven by CGI and gore, rather than suspense and storytelling. And so, it makes it kind of hard to get a good suspenseful story going, because you are competing with people who are throwing heavy metal instruments at the viewer from the moment the movie starts.” Follow the link for the full story.
