I don't know why I went to see The exorcist. For my whole life, I avoided the movie because I was scared. Just hearing people talking about it, made me scared.
Anyway, my friend took me to The Phoenix Theatre, and I must admit that the show did not scare me.
Now, having not seen the movie, it is hard for me to compare but I can see that it would have not been an easy task to put this movie into a stage.
The play definitely has suspense, good actors and great use of special effects (I am still wondering how did they make the head spinning). I would suggest to go see if you like a couple of hours of good entertainment.
I left the theatre quite happy to not feel scared. But probably this is the same reason why some of you might not like it.
