the negative reviews are wrong. this isnt perfect but it's a well made dramatization. it was creepy and interesting to listen to a horror based audio drama like this. I personally didn't find it scary at all but I didn't think the Exorcist movie was scary either.
the negative reviews complain about how it's hard to follow. if you pay attention it's really easy to understand what's going on. they also complain about the lack of a narrator describing everything. these negative reviewers don't seem to understand the difference between an audio book and an audio drama. I blame audible for this since they don't separate them into categories.
the acting was all mostly solid. the actress playing the demon while good didn't sound demonic. I kept hoping as the story progressed that the production team would alter her voice and make it deeper or something. they didn't.
the plot is a little different from the movie. I'm assuming that's because this is based on the book. I was dissapointed with the lack of focus on Father Karras' crisis of faith. you can tell he's struggling but it's not focused on. that's too bad cause from my understanding that was in the book (it's clearly in the movie) and it's what made the story so effective.
I hope the BBC does more horror audio dramas. I wish audible would make some.
