The exorcism at the end of the film is still one of the greatest movie scenes of all time.  The Exorcist is just an enduring piece of cinema and easily one of the top horror films.  It stands up over time, because it is well made and provocatively entertaining.

This is still, hands down, my favorite horror film.

Props for posting Phantasm above ("He was low, brown, and down to the ground!"). Exorcist to me was scary. I also think Exorcist 3 with George C. Scott was a great entry. There is virtually no gore, but Captain Howdy's sppeches freaked me straight the hell out! Nobody ever talks about that one so I'll show it love. Love should also be given to Let the Right One In, it's brillaint.
Let the Right One In ( Låt den rätte komma in ) (2008)90%4/4 starsAction: 3/3 + Comedy: 1/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 1/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 1/1 = 9/10 or 90%.The acting, development, and grounded fairytale are all outstanding. The pace is slow though it is a reflection of the way of life as well as an acceptable reasoning for why the characters live and behave as they sometimes do. For the vampire and horror genre, movies are seldom this great and ground-breaking!view review +

Yeah, I agree.  Is it scary or gory...that is the question.  I prefer scary over dumb gore.

I think it depends on what horror sub genre an individual likes and its definition; some people think The Sixth Sense is a horror film, I personally do not. Here are my alternatives. I do enjoy The Exorcist, have for years, but I prefer the book, it came first and so much was taken out to make the movie- the movie is actually incomplete in my opinion, many scenes unexplained and unanswered dialogue.
