James Earl Jones??? Suddenly I need to see that film...
James Earl Jones in a GRASS SKIRT. It's a genius film.
That trailer sums up how insane Exorcist II really is. When William Peter Blatty ( author of the original novel and screenwriter of the original movie ) watched a cut of this film, he suggested to the studio that he rewrote the dialogue as a comedy and they dubbed it over the top. He thought that was the only way to save it. Strangely enough they refused.
I remember seeing the commercials as a kid and thinking the film would be awesome mainly because of the music. As for the trailer, the one thing it seemed to be missing was the fuse burning across the screen throughout.
