But translating The Exorcist presented us with many unique tests and questions. One big question was, “How do you adapt a film where most of the story takes place in a single bedroom?”
The answer we landed on was first to break down and assess all the visuals and moments from the film. Piece together every moment within that bedroom and examine why it was intense, scary or even vile. What textures can we reconstruct differently, sometimes in an incredibly abstract way?
The famous “pea soup” scene for instance. What if we were surrounded in the materials of the retch-covered bed? What if those layers of mattress padding literally enveloped us? And let’s be honest, traversing through a vomit-covered bed is pretty horrifying and disgusting by itself. Now add a possessed girl into the mix!
Nah, just an easter egg. They've used the face multiple times just for effect. Most of the general populous don't even realize who it is.Wasn't there already a house recently that randomly had the face from the Exorcist in it? I wonder if that was supposed to be a clue.
The impression I get from Universal is that it's mainly just taking place in the house. Looks like it's gonna be a mix if real settings and "demonic" visuals translating into physical sets.THIS is exciting news! My favorite horror film of all time!
And let's not worry, there are plenty of other settings in this film besides the bedroom: the Iraqi shoe factory, Georgetown University, Dahlgren Chapel, the attic, Karras' dormitory, doctor's offices, etc. A whole plethora of visuals!
I predict this is going to be amazing!
