I can’t believe I’m writing this, but we’ve reached a point where there’s almost too much great horror TV to choose from. Between “Ash vs Evil Dead”, “Scream” and “The Walking Dead”, horror fans have it pretty good. There’s one show that’s being looked over, though and at this point I’m confident in saying that it’s one of the best of them all – “The Exorcist.”
The show’s painfully formulaic first episode coupled with the fact that it airs on Fridays isn’t doing it any favors, but I’ve taken the time every week to watch it with my parents’ cable login online, and each episode has improved on the last markedly. There’s great twists, awesomely disturbing moments featuring insects (and of course vomit) and a genuine care for the original film that most modern re-imaginings wouldn’t take a second to think about.
I could go on all day here, but I already made a video with five of the biggest reasons you need to binge FOX’s “The Exorcist” as soon as possible. You can watch it below.
