It’s hard for me to believe the movie, “The Exorcist,” was released 40 years ago. I don’t even know if the Showcase Cinemas in Springdale are even around anymore, but that’s where my twin brother and I went to see it.
After watching the movie, I remember feeling more disturbed by it than scared and I think my brother felt the same way. We discussed not wanting to go back home with that movie on our minds. We decided to stay at the cinema and see another film.
A comedy would take our minds off “The Exorcist,” so we decided to go see “Blazing Saddles.” This Mel Brooks movie got our minds off that girl with the spinning head.
Hard to believe that movie was released 40 years ago too. Time passes—no, wait—I’ve already said that.
