When a teenage girl is possessed by a mysterious entity, her mother seeks the help of two priests to save her daughter.
Belief in evil. Belief that evil can be cast out. From these two strands of faith, author William Peter Blatty and director William Friedkin wove The Exorcist, the frightening and realistic story of an innocent girl inhabited by a malevolent entity. This is the terrifying tale of her mother’s frantic resolve to save her and two priests – one doubt-ridden, the other a rock of faith – joined in battling ultimate evil. Winner of 1973 Oscars® for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound Mixing, The Exorcist remains one of the most shocking and gripping movies in the history of cinema and is a regular feature on lists of the scariest movies ever made. This new digital cinema print was created from restored picture and audio elements under the supervision of Friedkin.
Starring Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, Linda Blair
Winner, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Sound, Academy Awards 1974
Nominated Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Academy Awards 1974
“If movies are, among other things, opportunities for escapism, then THE EXORCIST is one of the most powerful ever made.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“There is nothing dated about THE EXORCIST, which remains an effective excursion into demonic possession more than a quarter of a century after it was first unveiled to the public.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
