This is a excellent drama. I expected a horror show or something between Supernatural and Preacher. Instead I found a well written show that I plan to watch more often.

They bought rights to the name, but contains very little from the original. There's also the new plot element in which there are many possessed characters, not just the girl -- so it's more like a zombie story than the exorcism of a single demonic possession. Very similar plot to "Outcast" on Cinemax -- 2 guys dealing with a zombie-devil infestation. Would rather have seen an expanded limited event series, maybe 8 episodes, based on the original book. Instead, an endless supply of demon-zombies for a repetitive story that doesn't end until the series is cancelled... More looking forward to Blatty's upcoming publication "The Exorcist For The 21st Century" featuring an original and never before published adaptation for a new miniseries of Blatty's classic novel.

Great show. Season 2 took it to another level. John Cho was at his best.

avatar

excellent first season. [spoiler] shame though they couldn't get Ellen Burstyn & Linda Blair to play their roles of mother & daughter [/spoiler]

avatar

This is easily the best horror show to come along in quite some time. It's a real shame it hasn't gotten more exposure; if you're a fan of solid theological horror, definitely check this one out!

avatar

If you go into it expecting an extension of the movie franchise, you're going to be disappointed. This show feels like Supernatural if it took itself seriously, in a good way.

avatar

I really enjoyed this. It was well written, well conceived, and with the direct ties to the cult classic movie, an instant hook in. However, I had wished for a more finalised ending. It was very open-ended, and without the demon plaguing Reagan and her family, what's the point? Fox may be a money making machine, but they need to learn to have an ending that actually ends.

God is not the one who works in mysterious ways

avatar

The fact that they cancelled this show and continue to let other wack a**. shows continue to air is sad af. This was the best spin off of a movie I've ever seen

avatar

Me ha sorprendido gratamente. La primera temporada me gustó, con ese aire oscuro y las referencias a la historia que vimos en la película. La segunda me pareció mucho más buena; menos oscura, con una mezcla de posesiones y casas encantadas, que la hace mucho más entretenida. Muy recomendada para los adictos a este género. Lástima que no podamos disfrutar de otra temporada.
