The Exorcist Movie Series

In my opinion, The Exorcist is by far, one of the scariest horror movies ever made. The simple fact that this movie is based on a true occurrence is enough to make your skin crawl. The original Exorcist movie is about the demonic possession of a young girl and the battle to bring her back from the grasp of her demonic possessor, the devil. One of the freakiest and most horrifying scenes is when the possessed 12 year old girl, Regan, runs the down the stairs on her hands and feet backwards. To make this spooky scene function, a Russian gymnast was used to get the shot. Other memorable scary scenes are when Regan's head spins completely around and the entire exorcism ritual will scare the liquid out of you. Below are descriptions to all of the Exorcist movies in the series. Even if you don't see them all, I urge you to watch the original.  The Exorcist

The Exorcist

The Exorcist With THE EXORCIST, William Friedkin (THE FRENCH CONNECTION, THE BOYS IN THE BAND) rivals Hitchcock for heart-stopping terror in this deeply horrifying
masterpiece that led to religious boycotts, fainting and nauseous audiences, and a commercial success that forever changed Hollywood. Linda Blair plays Regan, a 12-year-old girl possessed by the devil. After exhausting all the options of science, psychology, and medicine, Regan's mother (Ellen Burstyn) realizes the supernatural nature of her daughter's condition and resorts to a religious solution, turning to Father Karras (Jason Miller) for an exorcism. Aided by the mysterious Jesuit exorcist Father Merrin (Max von Sydow), Karras must confront not only supernatural phenomena but also his own inadequate faith and displaced guilt over his mother's recent death, a personal torment Regan uses to manipulate him, but with disturbing results.

Like THE GODFATHER before it and JAWS soon after, THE EXORCIST enjoyed
tremendous commercial and critical success that directly transformed Hollywood into the blockbuster behemoth of American culture.

Theatrical Release: December 26, 1973.

Ellen Burstyn suffered permanent injury to her spine during shooting of the scene in which she is knocked across the room.

Friedkin punched Father William O'Malley during shooting of Father Karras's death scene to elicit a better performance.

The film was rereleased in 2000 with a digitally remastered soundtrack and 12 minutes of additional footage, including the infamous "spider-walk" scene, in which the possessed Regan walks backward on all fours down a staircase; it also includes scenes that provide additional psychological background on Regan, more subliminal, shadowy shots of the demon, and an alternate ending with a lighter tone than the original release.

"...The first modern, F/X-heavy shriek-o-rama....[Miller and Burstyn] give harrowing, nuanced performances....Strikingly new amid [its era]..."

"What an excellent day for an exorcism."--Regan (Linda Blair) to Father Karras (Jason Miller)

"Why you do this to me, Damie?"--Regan (as Father Karras's mother) to Father Karras

This is the movie that you can't stand to watch and yet can't turn away from. THE EXORCIST is a horrifying, riveting film based on William Peter Blatty's best-seller (he also wrote the screenplay). In the ultimate transformation plot, a 12-year-old girl (Linda Blair) becomes possessed by the devil. Soon the once-sweet child beomes a murderous, vomit-spewing, bed-twirling hellhound. A dedicated but naive priest attempts to exorcise Satan from Regan's body--and in the process is forced to confront personal demons of his own. The theatrical release led to outrage, fainting, nausea--and huge box-office receipts. The result was two cash-in sequels, the second directed by Blatty.

"...The EXORCIST is still one of the scariest and most adult horror movies ever..."

"...At once a religious parable, a study of tortured adolescence and a warped satire about a single-parent family, it hasn't dated in the slightest..."

 

The Exorcist 2 - The Heretic

The Exorcist 2 - The Heretic Richard Burton stars as exorcist Father Philip Lamont in John Boorman's sequel to THE EXORCIST. The cleric, who is struggling with his faith, is investigating the death of Father Merrin (Max Von Sydow), who was killed in the course of exorcising the Assyrian demon Pazuzu from Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair). Although now seemingly normal, Regan continues to be monitored at a psychiatric institute by Dr. Gene Tuskin (Louise Fletcher). In an attempt to plumb her memories of exorcism, Dr. Tuskin has hypnotized the girl, to whom she's linked by a "synchronizer" and is so overcome by "witnessing" Regan's memory of the event that Lamont has to rescue her. After a tour of the Georgetown house where the exorcism took place, Lamont returns to be coupled with Regan by synchronizer. The priest is spirited to the past by Pazuzu to observe Father Merrin exorcising a young boy, Kokumo (Joey Green), in Africa. Learning that the boy developed special powers to fight Pazuzu, who appears as a swarm of locusts, Lamont journeys to Africa, defying his superior, to seek help from the adult Kokumo (James Earl Jones).

This sequel to the 1973 groundbreaking box office hit finds Regan under psychiatric treatment, still recovering from the effects of personally hosting evil. However, one priest who thinks it's not over yet.

Theatrical release: June 17, 1977.

Shot on location in New York, New York; Glen Canyon, Utah; and Africa.

Linda Blair refused to be wear the elaborate make-up that she had in THE EXORCIST, so a double performed the scenes of demonic possession.


The Exorcist 3

The Exorcist 3 On the 15th anniversary of the exorcism that claimed the life of a young priest, a nightmarish series of bizarre, religious murders haunts a local police lieutenant.

"This may sound like heresy, but THE EXORCIST III is a better and funnier (intentionally) movie than either of its predecessors..."

 

The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen

The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen With a digitally remastered soundtrack including new sound effects and new music along with never-before-seen restored footage, THE EXORCIST: THE VERSION YOU'VE NEVER SEEN pays tribute to this terrifying film, originally released on Christmas Day in 1973. It tells the story of Regan (Linda Blair), a little girl who becomes possessed by the devil and undergoes a violent exorcism conducted by two priests: an aging man at the end of his career (Max Von Sydow) and a young man having a crisis of conscience (Jason Miller). A blood-chilling film directed by William Friedkin and written by William Peter Blatty, this enhanced restoration of the original will thrill audiences anew.

"...THE EXORCIST retains the power to turn heads--and stomachs....A new shocker has been included: the infamous "spider walk," in which Blair's Regan descends the stairs like a crazed crab, bent over backward, mouth gushing blood..."

"...THE EXORCIST remains the ultimate exploitation-nightmare vision of the onslaught of adolescence....[It speaks] to a larger, if unconscious, collective fear..." -- Rating: A-

Theatrical release: September 22, 2000

Ellen Burstyn suffered permanent injury to her spine during shooting of the scene in which she is knocked across the room.

Friedkin punched Father William O'Malley during shooting of Father Karras's death scene to elicit a better performance.

This new release includes 12 minutes of additional footage, including the infamous "spider-walk" scene, in which the possessed Regan walks backward on all fours down a staircase; it also includes scenes that provide additional psychological background on Regan, more subliminal, shadowy shots of the demon, and an alternate ending with a lighter tone than the original release.

"...THE EXORCIST was and is a brilliant horror film, one with an archetypal ability to reach and disturb us. It will survive as long as people care about well-made movies..."
