When The Exorcist was re-released into theaters, the younger people in the audience laughed at it.
That's because The Exorcist isn't really scary. It's got a great sense of style, but I wasn't scared by it. For that, you'd have to see Alien or the original Halloween.

I'll agree that "torture porn" (a label that is totally wrong, but I won't go there) isn't anything close to 1970s horror, though.
I agree. There where two genuinly creepy moments in "The Exorcist" and it's the two quick flashes of the white face. That shit's creepy, the other stuff is not. I honestly found "Poltergeist" to be a scarier film.
