Linda Blair : unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

i would say it hurt her career more than helped it bc you look at her career as an adult so '90s to now and there is no career at all. so it's like a curse on her career they talk about the exorcist curse well her career got cursed when she was in the original.

she was judged bc she was the star of it.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

She was typecast because of The Exorcist. But so what? She still had (has?) a wonderful career starring in horror and B grade films. If anything, being in The Exorcist helped launch her career. Who knows if she would've been offered roles in other films if she hadn't been in The Exorcist? It was a blessing.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

but also a curse for her. you don't know about what happened to her after starring in this movie? the controversy and scorn and hatred she faced unfairly? i just watched her talk about how everyone saw her as evil just bc of this role like really evil person like she was cursed or something?

the general perception was she was a bad person just bc she played this possessed demonic part. she said people on the street walking by her would see her and be afraid or something.

so being judged unfairly by the public is a curse in a person's life for sure.

i don't care how much fame respect and adulation in a young girl's life you receive from hollywood having this fear in people's faces on the street as they look at you and being looked at as a scary bad monster person is a much bigger thing than the love and respect from hollywood.

After The Exorcist, Airport 75 = Disaster
Born Innocent = raped with a mop handle on national TV = years of being typecast in women's prison movies.
Exorcist sequel = worst sequel ever. Could not live it down and spent years talking about it and making a parody of it.
Arrest for drugs = No longer an A list actress = B movie hell.
Affair with Rick Springfield, Affair with Rick James and aborted his baby because he was black = he wrote and sang about it.
Posed nude for OUI = nudie roles for over a decade.

Never taken seriously. Even her Oscar nom was attempted to be canceled when found out she had two doubles in The Exorcist.

Porn scandal = had a lookalike in a porn movie, Vicious Virgin.
She was seen hanging out with porn star Linda Lovelace not long after The Exorcist was released.

Bad Actress = Bad reputation.

Blew all her money on animal rescue shelters.

Ruined her face = looks like **** now.

Born Innocent = raped with a mop handle on national TV = years of being typecast in women's prison movies.

Nevertheless it paid the bills and made her a cult film icon. L.A. punkers Redd Kross even wrote a song about her ("Linda Blair") and titled their debut album Born Innocent.

Exorcist sequel = worst sequel ever.

Not her fault it was a ****ty film and she was actually the BEST thing about the film (hubba hubba!)

Affair with Rick Springfield, Affair with Rick James and aborted his baby because he was black = he wrote and sang about it.

Never knew about that. Interesting.

Ruined her face = looks like **** now.

Last thing I saw on her on, I thought she looked really good. giveup.gif

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

i will always defend exorcist II: the heretic. it is a good film. so you are wrong saying it is a ****ty film. linda looks so beautiful and so hot in it. wow i can still remember her in that white night gown. she had a doll face in it so stunning it was an adult face mixed with a little girl face. and to think that just 7 year later she would grace and bless us with her magnificent big tits in that bathtub scene in savage streets! yes!

That's an opinion and I respect it, but the film is generally frowned upon and considered to be an inferior sequel to a great film. That said, I found it to be enjoyable in the same way that I found Death Wish 3 or Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation to be enjoyable "bad" films.

linda looks so beautiful and so hot in it

Agreed. Like I said, she was the main reason I sat through the entire film.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

when i was watching it i couldn't understand why it was panned by critics? it is a well made, competently made film that has creativity and some sci-fi flair and feels futuristic. so why do you say it's a bad movie? is it that the movie plot wise doesn't really go anywhere? or bc the part with james earl jones are corny and cheesy?

yeah talk about teenage dream for a teenage boy watching and her bc she was a teenager in this film. she was mesmerizingly beautiful and she was hypnotic looking. it's hard to take your eyes off of her bc she is so beautiful in this film.

who are cooler actors bc of how cool and tough they are in movies charles bronson or warren oates or lee van cleef?

It was biting off more than it could chew. The film needed a bigger budget and better effects and fell short on so many levels. Hence, it pales in comparison to the epicness of the original film and comes off as a silly, pointless sequel.

I'd say Bronson because of Death Wish, a favorite of mine.

Some small-minded people are like that, they'll think that an actor or actress is really the same person as the character they portrayed in a film. David Hess, a great character actor, went through the same experience because of his role as Krug, the lead villain in Last House on the Left. Not everyone is like that though.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

i think it's pretty safe to say kevin spacey is a bad person. and i don't think it's just a coincidence that 90% of the roles he has played have been bad, immoral and creepy sick people.

i don't care that he was acquitted he did those horrible things to young boys. bc otherwise why did hollywood drop him immediately following those cases starting and never let him back? this is bigger than michael richards saying the n word bc he at least was able to do bee movie and be on curb your enthusiasm.

hollywood would never disown or blacklist an oscar winner actor unless they had a big and meaningful reason to do so. and just bc he was found innocent doesn't mean he was bc look at michael jackson he got off we all know this bc of the HBO doc that proved that he molested those boys.

Spacey and Jacko were both acquitted so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

I've never seen that HBO documentary so I can't comment on that.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

you shouldn't. i mean what kind of a freak sleeps with kids when he is 40? i mean it's not a stretch to say he molested children when he slept with them in his bed. it is not a far trip from sleeping with kids to molesting them. you know what i mean? mentally and physically not far.

and spacey even admitted that he would go too far with touching people without their consent and that is a bad mora thing to do. so he definitely raped men. bc think about it why would a man bring this up publicly if it didn't happen? it's so embarrassing doing this. i just don't see this ever happened if it didn't happen to you. rich celebs get off in court all the time or get light sentences.

also why would such a celebrated actor in hollywood like him be blacklisted unless they had sufficient evidence and reason to do this?

lukejbarnett

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

hollywood would never disown or blacklist an oscar winner actor unless they had a big and meaningful reason to do so.

Yet Hollywood never disowned Victor Salva, a convicted child molester and director of the Jeepers Creepers films. In fact, many of Salva's Hollywood friends came to his defense after he was convicted, so I don't know why they would disown Spacey, even if he did what he was accused of doing. Maybe they dislike him for other reasons.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

bc they have to disown people who do very bad things like spacey did. but here is the difference that you didn't think about, spacey is a hollywood elite or he was and salva is a no name guy that is not a powerful director.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

i lost all respect for liam neeson bc he just said we should let kevin apcey back in to hollywood. it's only been what 7 years since he was put on trial for sexually abusing and raping guys? if roseaane who just said offensive words on twitter can be banned for life from hollywood then sexually assaulting and raping guys should be a lifetime ban for kevin spacey.

also michael richards was on the view recently so does that mean he is okay with hollywood now? and if so, then roseanne should be let back into hollywood also. but you know what it is though right? it is he's a liberal so he's let back in but roseanne isn't bc she's a conservative or at least republican.

i form this conclusion based on how hollywood which is a liberal company works and also that richards was let on the view after what he did bc they are the most far left liberals ever on that show.

I'm not sure what Roseanne is anymore. She used to be left-wing, then she was independent, now she's MAGA or close to it…I can't keep up with her. giveup.gif

Richards was a pariah in Hollywood for almost two decades because of what he said back in 2006. I guess they're easing up on him now. In a few more years, they'll probably let Roseanne back into the "the club".

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

you mean after trump right? you have to see that this is all political who they "let back". and it's so bad for the country you have george clooney and julia roberts supporting biden when the world is on fire bc of him we have multiple wars going on bc of a lack of leadership from him and just a plain lack of confidence in biden bc he can't string a sentence together or walk correctly or even know how to talk, he gets world leaders names confused as far as saying some leader is another leader, he doesn't even know when he served as vice president,

he lies about the border being secure he just did, he lied about inflation being transitory, he lied about his son's laptop being "russian disinformation" and now since it was used as evidence against him in court making him a convicted felon we know he lied about this, he never mentions the girls who get murdered by illegal aliens until weeks later, which he let into this country by signing executive orders getting rid of all trump's border bills, and get rid of remain in mexico policy on his first day in office, he wants to make illegal immigrants legal just so they can vote for democrats,

he took trump off ballots in states like washington state where i live bc he can't beat him fairly, he puts a liberal biden donor as the judge in his fake felony case and also they make all the jurors be liberals who always vote liberal so they get a fake conviction which was just an error in documents signing not a felony,

no one was hurt, which was just a misdemeanor and actually it wasn't even a crime bc it was passed the statute of limitations, back in 2017, they said it was election interference but it was after the election, NDAs are legal they are done all the time. america has been destroyed bc of him and he never shows he cares about all the people not able to afford gas, groceries, or anything else, he just lies about it, no one can afford to buy a house, people are murdered and raped every day almost bc of an open border.

he never takes accountability of anything he does punishing people and making them suffer everyday.

and he used election interference against trump with his fake hoax new york trial which is still going on bc trump is still gagged. what kind of a debate between candidates can be had when the public can't hear trump talk about his conviction which biden will definitely bring up?

oh and in 2020 when trump only "lost" by about 60,000 votes they recently took a poll and about 30,000 people said they would have voted differently had they known about hunter biden's laptop which now we know is real but they covered it up with the fbi and social media by calling it russian disinformation. that means biden stole the election. that and all the fraudulent votes which they counted from dead people and people voted more than once both for biden.

Spot on! cheers.gif You must have a damn good crystal ball!

On Thursday night, America got to see what you and I already knew about Biden.

I'd rather focus on Linda Blair though….The reason I revived this thread in the first place was because I saw her in Grotesque (1988) a few weeks ago and couldn't believe how hot she was at the time (well, actually I could but I guess I had forgotten).

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

she never got the credit she deserved for being one of the most beautiful and one of the hottest girls who has ever lived. i'm telling you you have to watch her in savage streets bc that was when she was at her almost hottest in 1984.

is that a pic of your VHS copy of this movie? do you have this movie on VHS tape?

lukejbarnett

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

OK, it's been added to my watch list.

is that a pic of your VHS copy of this movie? do you have this movie on VHS tape?

Nah, I've never had it on video or DVD. I watched it on Tubi.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

i'm glad we can both agree that she was a major babe.

what do you mean by your watch list? is your watch list on tubi? tubi is great except they sometimes censor movies. it is such a common thing that they made a video about this on you tube. shameful. and i don't even know why they would do this bc they can show nudity so why would they censor some nudity but not all nudity?

2 movies on tubi are so short it is obvious they are censored movies. 1 is a movie from full moon features, it's a sorority babes in the slimeball bowl-a-rama sequel and the other movie is a movie where it is so obvious they censored a scene bc they start to show a love scene then they cut so badly and abruptly that it is obvious they censored it.

lukejbarnett

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

what do you mean by your watch list?

Films that I intend to watch (not just films on Tubi).

tubi is great except they sometimes censor movies. it is such a common thing that they made a video about this on you tube. shameful. and i don't even know why they would do this bc they can show nudity so why would they censor some nudity but not all nudity?

It's free, so I'm not complaining. They have an impressive selection of old horror films and giallos.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

um why would you want to watch a censored version of a great horror film? that would be worse than not watching it.

but on what website is your watch list?

lukejbarnett

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

You can tell the toll it took she looks much older now

“Anyway” - Joe Biden

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

Maybe she played the part too well. I watched a documentary about the making of The Exorcist, and how the public and audience members reacted. Many people thought that that it was real. They thought something was wrong with Linda Blair.

So some press appearences were set up of Linda doing normal kid things in order to ease the public's mind.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

I dont think she shouldnt have a big star.
I think Hollywoods a corrupt deranged buisness. Maybe’s for the best for her not to spend so much time in that filth!

Without strife, your victory has no meaning.
Without strife, you do not advance.
Without strife, there is only stagnation.

Re: unfairly branded persecuted in her career bc of the exorcist

she was lucky to get the role in the exorcist.

what kind of roles should she have gotten outside of that?

she would have been supporting cast at best
