I've not seen ANY of the Exorcists
Avatar 3:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Abbey Road like today.
Avatar 3:40pm Fox:

On the contrary, Exorcist III is quite excellent. It's one of my favorite films. It was based on a novel by Blatty, and the screenplay was adapted and then the film was directed by Blatty as well. Its got George C Scott, phenomenal snappy dialogue, and a the movie is stolen by Brad Douriff. It was released in 1990 I think, but manages to feel like a seventies film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm tim from champaign:

The original novel, Legion, was unrelated to Exorcist, but the exec's made him loop it into the universe so it could be part of the series.

Any tour of DC requires driving to the Exxon at the Whitehurst Freeway /Canal Rd intersection and seeing the stairs that the film climaxed with.

@chresti: Same here. Never seen them in full, i might add.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm steveo:

It also features a large, dark and well-lit stage. As you go up the stairs that lead up to the stage, you will be greeted by the stage show. You will soon see the stage name "Symphony of Melodies on a Dance Floor." You will learn that the two large instruments in the middle (and the two sets of drums), a Mellotron and an Ensemble Mellotron are the main features of this production.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Ike:

Although I'm not much for horror (besides Evil Dead II of course), that sounds good. I love both George C. Scott and Brad Dourif.

Avatar 3:56pm Itzall ClearD'me Nåu:

Fox, thanks for the run-down of Exorcist III. I have avoided it like "Jaws III" assuming it was similarly just flogging the hog. Now I will definitely seek it out, sounds fun.
  4:02pm Brendan:

A couple of pals and I snuck into the Exorcist at the theatre in the old mall in Rockville Md when the movie first came out, I was 9 years old. We learned to open the emergency exit doors down front by the screen and sneak along the ground into the first row seats. (Came in handy for sex education when they showed the odd softcore pornos). Anyway we slipped in and watctched the Exorcist, terrified. One friend spent the entire movie sitting with the seat half folded in a 45 degree V bend pulling his knees to his chest. When the film ended we went to leave and his legs where asleep and he simply could not walk but rather fell to the ground writhing. We thought him posessed at first then laughed really hard and dragged him out. We all slept over at his house that night . Whenever someone had to pee we would do it out the front window of the house - we were terrified to go down the dark hallway after that movie.
  4:06pm Catalpa:

Funny story, Brendan ;)
Avatar 4:11pm Chris from DC:

Rockville Mall, wow hadn't thought about that in a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm chresti:

Brendan- I used to do that too, put my feet on the seat in front of me and peek through my knees
  4:17pm Catalpa:

I heard the volunteers are periodically locked into WFMU like poor WalMart workers. Pseu is like a saint!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Franco Twinkie:

Brendan, I had not seen the movie in 1974 when a friend and I drove across the country. I ate some suspect breakfast sausage at some dump in Eastern New Mexico, so by the time we were in the Texas panhandle I was doubled over with a case of food poisoning. At that time, across this great country of ours was this road stop nightmare called Stuckey's, who were famous for their Pecan Log, or some shit like that. I was in the stifling hot restroom on my knees trying to puke when I looked up to where someone had scratched into the paint: Your mother sucks cocks in Hell - The Exorsist. That did it! The flood gates opened.
Avatar 4:29pm Itzall ClearD'me Nåu:

Catalpa, that's an interesting take on Mulholland Drive. Of course it started as a pilot for TV but was (shocker) deemed "too weird". He later added some scenes, notably the hot sex scene between Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring and edited the whole mess into an amazing piece of film, certainly one of my favorites of all time!
  4:29pm Brendan:

@ Chris from DC, I try not to think of it intentionally. The mall had a Waxie Maxies record store an Orange Julius, a ‘magic store’ that sold prank stuff, an arcade and a bunch of other small boutique stores . I think they might have even had a head shop with bongs, papers , and some hideous fake weed that was probably oregano
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm coelacanth∅:

good stories Brendan and Franco Thanks
  4:34pm Brendan:

@Franco Twinkie - I saw the Stuckey’s ads on countless billboards but never had the pleasure of stopping for one. Thanks for the tip on the pecan loaf , Sounds like it might be better to skip the middle man , not eat it and drop that one directly in the toilet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Devin B.:

That's a good skip!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Ike:

@Itzall, one of the most profound disappointments in the history of TV was ABC nixing that series before it ever got beyond a pilot. It should've gone straight to HBO or Showtime! Sadly premium cable was not really doing that much of that kind of thing yet then.

  4:46pm Catalpa:

@Itzall, I absolutely love Mulholland Drive--to me it is genius, high art, like a dream, unexplainable--wondrous and beautiful. I was just kidding about Lynch doing that as a remake of Exorcist 3--I was just trying to BLOW...YOUR....MINDS....!!!!!
  4:48pm Catalpa:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Scroll forward to the late '70's - The Exorcist was playing for a dollar at The Wiltern, which had yet to be resurrected as fine-ass concert venue. It was a total wreck where poor Mexicans would dump their kids instead of getting
a babysitter. As we were driving down Olympic Blvd. smoking dope I was already getting apprehensive (I grew up Catholic) By time we were inside the smelly theater with all the broken seats and kids running around screaming, I was in complete turmoil. At the beginning the movie during the archeological dig scene I was looking at the floor. It didn't improve, but when Linda Blair utters those famous words, I burst out laughing! We stopped for ice cream on the way home. It was great,
Avatar 4:55pm Fox:

I saw Mullholland Drive at the Jersey City movie palace a few months ago. It was exciting because I got to see a Lynch film at a theater that still used red curtains.

OMFG, Gary Oldman is in a new Soderberg film?!?! Egad. Oldman is always incredible. Remember that absolute shit movie Lost In Space? Heather Graham and Matt LeBlanc and everything about it was agony. but Oldman 's performance was absolutely brilliant.

  5:07pm Catalpa:

Actually, something more in line with your Stuckey's story, Franco, would be a madcap tale involving the consumption of a handful of NoDoz, a Dunkin Donuts restroom, and a misperception of chocolate icing during an early morning rendez vous for a concert in the 70s.... but I will save that for next week as I am getting out of work early. Hurrah! Thanks, Fabio and everyobody.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Ike:

Though Netflix's Lost in Space is middling, Parker Posey is actually great in it as Dr. Smith. The whole cast is pretty good. I just wish the show itself was a little bit better. It's a hell of a lot better than the source material, that's for sure, but it's still not quite... something.
  5:31pm nic:

WoW_i'd love to hear the messed up version !!!
Avatar 5:32pm Fox:

Vincent: evidently he got on the wrong side of Hollywood and ended up on a kind of shit list. I think his politics were right of center in some ways? He was besties with Bowie, though, so I dont know how right he could be. He also has the attitude of taking a crap but well paying role so that he could do the creative projects he wanted. Like Lost in Space he did specifically so he could finance Nil by Mouth.

I wish he did theater. I'd looooove to see him on broadway.
Avatar 5:34pm Fox:

Ike: I've been meaning to check that out if only for Parker Posey's interpretation.

Ankersmit was 2007. As part of the brilliant Rumor festival series..now defunct due to lack of money.. Argg.. It was a great concept. One night, three novel but very varied acts in three different venues. Kind of a failure roadshow.

@Fox that’s interesting, I hadn’t heard that about his politics and Hollywood. That’s what I always thought re: Lost in Space and financing his own work, I followed him closely in the late 90s and was disappointed until Nil By Mouth. I hope he has something else up his sleeve.
