SDCC Pilot Screening – The Exorcist

I was fortunate enough to be one of the first people to see the full-length pilot for the upcoming FOX show “The Exorcist.” Star Geena Davis remarked at the SDCC panel where it was shown that she was scarred by her first viewing of the movie and that very appropriately sums up most of our first experiences with that amazing film. So how does this TV show pilot stack up to the movie? For starters, it is not nearly as frightening as the film. With that said, there are several genuinely frightening moments in the pilot which is rare for a TV show. The other obvious difference is that to sustain the series, this is set up with much more drama to give the characters a chance to grow and develop and allow the plot to unfold. read more
