12-year-old Regan MacNeil begins to adapt an explicit new personality as strange events befall the local area of Georgetown. Her mother becomes torn between science and superstition in a desperate bid to save her daughter, and ultimately turns to her last hope: Father Damien Karras, a troubled priest who is struggling with his own faith.
I just got back from seeing this. I've never seen the original one so there were some parts in this movie that were pretty scary. But I also saw it with my friends so we spent half the time laughing...
This isn't really a review, I just wanted to say I was very disappointed. The way everyone was going on about this movie you'd think it was the scariest movie ever. I'll admit I was startled in places...

Even though this was my first true viewing of the movie, I've seen so many scenes before--- the "pea-soup" scene, the "360-degree-head-turn" scene, "the power-of-Christ-compels-you" scene, as well as numerous other iconic scenes from the movie--- that it hampered my enjoyment of the movie.
