The True Story of the First Test Screening of THE EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC
The Exorcist II: The Heretic (review) is widely considered by horror fans to be on of the worst sequels of all time, and, well, they aren't too far off from that. William Friedkin, director of the original, hasn't even seen it (aside from the first few minutes) but he was invited to a preview screening in Pasadena of the film. He declined, however he has a pretty funny story about the audiences hilariously violent reaction to the film told to him by a studio exec who happened to be at the theater. Check it out below!
