The Exorcist

Happy Halloween from Upstate Films and Oblong Books! Inspired by the last known Catholic-sanctioned exorcism in the United States, William Peter Blatty’s best-selling book and William Friedkin’s award-winning film follow the demonic possession of a 12 year-old girl and her mother’s attempts to win her back.

When young Regan (Linda Blair) starts throwing fits and behaving bizarrely, her worried mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks medical help, only to hit a dead end. As she seeks the help of a local priest (Jason Miller) who thinks the girl may be seized by the devil, she is convinced to call in Father Merrin (Max von Sydow) — an exorcist. Exploring the nature of faith and the boundaries of maternal love, THE EXORCIST went from opening on 26 U.S. screens to earning ten Academy Award nominations (winning Best Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay) and becoming one of the highest grossing films in history.

(USA / 1973 / Directed by William Friedkin)
