THE EXORCIST Series Premiere Review

I decided on a whim, to catch the series premiere of The Exorcist on FOX, and came away a bit surprised.


When I watched the series premiere, I kept thinking to myself just how are they going to pull this off? This has been done in the movies. We know what's going to happen.


Well, more or less.

The show set the pace early, as we watch Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels, Hannah Kasulka and Geena Davis deliver their characters.

The cast is pretty strong and as the episode develops, there are no disappointments.

To be honest, the show is treading familiar ground and familiar scares, but I think it will be fun to have a scary show pop up once a week to give your heart a good jump start here and there.

Bottom line, it didn't suck and I was glad I watched it. I hope it keeps up this tangible tone of subtle and not so subtle frights without treading on old tropes. The folks on IMDb thought so too, giving it an 8/10 rating.
