The Exorcist remains one of the few horror films that genuinely terrifies me, and the thought of it being remade made me sick to my stomach.

The talk of the remake surfaced once again last week after a report explained how Morgan Creek, the studio that owns the rights, were selling the rights to a large number of their back catalogue. The report said that Morgan Creek would retain the rights to five particular films, with plans to remake them. One of those films was The Exorcist.

The horror community was not happy…

Jump forward to today, and a Tweet on what looks to be the official Morgan Creek Twitter feed announces that there are NO plans for a remake of The Exorcist. You can view the Tweet next:

Hoo-fucking-ray for that!

Remaking The Exorcist is one of the silliest ideas I ever heard, and any director brave enough to sign up to do it would end up being damned and tossed out of a window and falling down a long flight of steps.

Please, please, PLEASE let this be the end of the remake talk. Enough of it!!!

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
