The Exorcist Added to the National Film Registry
And another notch has been added to the horror genre's ever growing belt of credibility! The Library of Congress has added the best and most frightening tale of demonic possession to their official National Film Registry.
The Registry was created in 1989 by the National Film Preservation Act to ensure the survival of works deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."
According to Variety, along with The Exorcist, The Pink Panther, All the President's Men, Saturday Night Fever, Airplane! and The Empire Strikes Back also made this year's cut after 2,112 titles nominated by the public and members of the National Film Preservation Board as well as Library of Congress staffers were mulled over, bringing the total number of titles stored there to 550.
Congrats to all those involved!
