This week we put it on the producer to queue up his so called “10” and he gives us THE EXORCIST Considered the most shocking film of its time and often called the scariest movie ever made, William Friedkin’s tale of demonic infiltration packed a wallop in 1971. Listen to see where it landed with us in 2015.

Based on William Peter Blatty’s (1971) best-seller of the same name, The Exorcist tells us the story of Regan, a 13 year old girl played by the then unknown Linda Blair, a seemingly sweet and innocent soul who wakes up one day Suddenly prone to fits of rage and bizarre behavior, Regan proves quite a handful for her actress-mother, Chris MacNeil, played by Ellen Burstyn. When Regan gets completely out of hand, and slides deeper into darkness, the doctors are left clueless. With no other place to turn, Chris calls in young priest Father Karras (Jason Miller), who becomes convinced that the girl is possessed by the Devil and that they must call in an exorcist, namely, Father Merrin (Max von Sydow). His foe proves to be no run-of-the-mill demon, and both the priest and the girl suffer numerous horrors during their struggles – requiring sacrifices of the deepest order where only the struggle of good and evil can exist. The Exorcist received a theatrical re-release in 2000, in a special edition that added 11 minutes of footage trimmed from the film’s original release and digitally enhanced Chris Newman’s Oscar-winning sound work.

Often considered a culture landmark of cinema, The Exorcist is regarded as one of the greatest film achievements of all time. We round it out with our “Top 3 Practical Effects in Film”
