10 Scariest Movies of All Time: #2

2  The Exorcist [1973]

The most riveting thing about this seminal classic is the presentation of evil as a disembodied force that can corrupt even the most innocent victims.  The plot connects with viewers irrespective of their religious beliefs, since the story unfolds through the eyes of a disillusioned priest struggling with a crisis of faith.  Although the movie is dated stylistically, it still packs a wallop by tapping into one of our most primal fears: the Devil himself as a supernatural force.
