    I was terrified of seeing "The Exorcist" because of all the JW hype about it and how demons would sit next to you in the theatre etc.. Years later I got up the courage to watch it and found the special effects and the plot laughable. Now I live in the 21st century and realize that demons are not real and that movies made of film cannot conjure the powers of evil. The Watch Tower is 500 years behind and their followers are encouraged to believe complete nonsense long ago disproven by reason and science.

    Pfft. I've seen THE EXORCIST many times ... before and while a JW. Yeah, it's scary, but that's about it. I thought ALIEN was alot scarier. Back in the 70s, people reported fainting in the theater. Kids today watch THE EXORCIST and find it hilarious. THE EXORCIST II was terrible! A real stinker! THE EXORCIST III was pretty good, but nothing tops the first one.

    You are are absolutely hilarious! The bathroom one was the best.

    I remember when I saw the Exorcist the first time, I had to sleep with the lights on, the second time, it was like a joke. I agree I think "Aliens" was a lot scarier than the Exorcist, but come on they are just movies. If you get a little scared, it did its job. Fear is a human created emotion, it's a state of mind. Remember that.

    there was also the rumor going around that some bethelites went to the theater to see the film and satan or some demons forced them to stay in their seats in the theater until elders were called from bethel to pray them out of their seats.

    bethelite elder super heroes.

    I heard something similar but in the story I heard the bethelites went to a porno theater and the elders had to be called to PRY them out of their seats !

    "MANY reports are on file of the adverse effects it had on many who saw it."

    "Many reports are on file"?!!

    What file? Who is keeping a file on these reports?

    The Awake writer is just making things up!

    "many reports on file"

    Did the writer consider the possibility that some of those reports were "created" by the movie makers in order to promote the movie?

    Seems like a timely thread bump LOL.

    What a load of pants, why did i ever fall for Watchtower propaganda, why?

    My JW mom told me that at the premiere of The Exorcist, the movie screen burst into flames, indicating demonic approval (I can find no news sources to back this up, of course, lol). Am I the only one who ever heard that story? I assumed it must have been some JW-specific urban legend, like the Smurf thing.

    Still have not seen The Exorcist, though. I like ghost movies like The Ring; but even though I'm now an atheist, I still can't stomach movies about demons.
