Universal spent a lot of money on the remake of The Exorcist. The cost of purchasing the film rights and producing it was $400 million. Judging by the early reviews from critics, the studio will be very lucky if this investment pays off.
The new show, directed by David Gordon Green, was supposed to be similar to the original and completely scare the audience. It turns out that It doesn’t live up to William Friedkin’s famous 1973 film.
For now, reviewers are unanimous in their ratings, asserting that the film is a poor substitute for its great predecessor and preys on viewers’ nostalgia, but has nothing to offer. A Vanity Fair journalist wrote directly that it was a “serious robbery,” and the Los Angeles Times called the scene extremely stressful. Meanwhile, Collider described the new horror film as a “shallow sequel” and the BBC condemned it as a “straightforward rip-off of streaming”.
