Schrader Exorcised from "Exorcist"

Maybe the devil made them do it.

Acclaimed writer-director Paul Schrader has been cast out from helming The Exorcist IV: The Beginning by the film's producers because he failed to throw in scenes of vomit, blood and gore to go along with the requisite holy water, according to the New York Post.

Schrader, who recently wrapped principal photography on the prequel in Rome and Morocco, was exorcised this week by Morgan Creek Productions after reportedly turning in footage that was devoid of the kind of demonic bloodletting that made the original, 1973's The Exorcist, the most celebrated horror flick of all time and one of the top-grossing films ever at the box office.

"The whole movie is done," another production source says in the newspaper. "When Paul went to turn it in, Morgan Creek refused to give him his post-production money because they hated it. Paul had given them what was in the script--a creepy psychological thriller, with no gore."

That's a stupid reason to fire someone, especially when they've basically finished your damned film. Blood and gore do not make a horror film.
