Horror History: Warner Bros. Execs Chased by Angry Fans During Exorcist II Premiere


Post Thumb:


For my money Exorcist II: The Heretic is not only one of the worst sequels ever made but also one of the worst films ever made… period. Apparently at the time of the film’s premiere, Warner Bros. execs were unaware of this but soon found out…. the hard way!

Big kudos to Evan Dickson of Bloody Disgusting for unearthing this truly hilarious (and recent) interview with original Exorcist director William Friedkin.

In the video Friedkin discusses the premiere incident in great detail. Apparently fans at the premiere of Exorcist II were so pissed off about how shitty the film turned out that they decided the powers-that-be were in need of a good old fashioned ass whipping. Watch the video. Laugh your ass off. It’s that damned funny.
