Summary

The Exorcist

The belief in evil — and 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.  

Academy Award™ winner Friedkin, who introduces the film and supervised this new video transfer from restored picture and audio elements, gets effective performances from Linda Blair, Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, Max von Sydow and Lee J. Cobb. Winner of 1973 Oscars® for Best Adapted Screenplay (by Blatty) and Best Sound, The Exorcist remains,40 years later, one of the most shocking and gripping movies ever made.
