It's been called the scariest movie ever made, and arriving today on Blu-ray nearly 37 years after its original Yuletide release, 'The Exorcist' is as enigmatic and creepy as ever. It's also still ripe with the contradictions that transformed it into a classic: a "theological thriller" written by a devout Catholic and directed by an agnostic Jew; a film not considered a horror tale by its creators yet invoking terror in its audience; and a young teen star engaged in disturbing acts who did not understand their implication at the time of filming. Yet it is these inherent dichotomies that give the film its undeniable power.
