I have a soft spot for this movie and I consume anything of it I can get. However, much of the movie's gravitas is in its visuals. This audio, which is essentially Audible's equivalent of a kid holding a tape recorder up to the TV's speaker, only gives you a portion of Blatty's work. It might work better with some editing and narration, like the old Doctor Who audios for lost episodes.
This is very much like the lost episode audios of Doctor Who, but without any narration. So random noises are all you get for minutes at a time.
If you like the movie, you already have an appreciation for this cast and what they do. George C. Scott is remarkable as Kindermann and you get (half of) a wonderful performances from Brad Douriff.
It does evoke memories of the movie, which are fine for me.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless, like me, they are hard-core fans of this movie.
This is full of loud sound effects with no comprehension as to what is going on (Even after seeing the movie many times. It's a collection of audio clips from the movie so it's like trying to watch the movie from another room in the house. Horribly disappointing esp after the original Exorcist narrated by Blatty himself.
That they just pulled the clips from the movie
Ni it seems to the audio track of the movie!
Well since I have seen the movie I remembered.
"This isn't an audio book it's just the audio trac"
what's the point? This isn't the audio book of Legion, it's simply the audio from the actual film production? Ok, I guess it's useful for the hearing impaired, yet doubt that without context even they may feel less than satisfied at the product.
