Exorcise This!

Kudos to FEARnet this week for putting the spotlight on iconic actress Linda Blair, who is helping to promote what may become the creepiest day in recent memory on Sun when the net runs all 5 Exorcist movies, including the 2 prequels and the original 1973 classic starring Oscar-nominated Blair as a head-spinning, projectile vomiting, demon-possessed girl. In other words, a typical American teenager. Many consider the original the scariest horror movie of all time. Why is it so terrifying (people literally fainted in theaters back in the day)? Blair told us that it really comes down to one thing. The monster isn't a demon, she said: “The monster is really you looking in the mirror. The monster really is a serial killer. The monster is Sadaam Hussein. The monster is Hitler. People needed to think it's going to come out in a horror film. It isn't. I don't think people are awake. They need to look at it deeper. It's not like the Swamp Thing. It's not Frankenstein. There's good and evil in everybody.” Interestingly, Blair isn't a big horror fan herself and prefers to focus instead on humanitarian causes, such as her L.A.-based charity World Heart Foundation, which helps rescue dogs. We'll drink pea soup to that.
