When The Exorcist was re-released into theaters, the younger people in the audience laughed at it.
well, mostly at the doctors smoking and the huge loud clatter-clatter MRI machine (or whatever it was). But yes, they did laugh.
Torture porn does nothing for me, but The Exorcist is one of two movies I've fallen asleep in (When Harry Met Sally Is the other). Though I did wake up in time to laugh myself silly at the bit where the young priest starts with the "no, take me instead" rant. This may be because I'd seen the Leslie Nielsen spoof Repossessed first.
