132 mins – United States 1973 – Dir: William Friedkin
Starring: Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow and Linda Blair
When a charming 12-year-old girl takes on the characteristics and voices of others, doctors say there is nothing they can do. As people begin to die, the girl’s mother realises her daughter has been possessed by the devil – and that her daughter’s only possible hope lies with two priests and the ancient rite of demonic exorcism.
A box office smash when originally released in 1973 and highly controversial for many decades after (the former director of the British Board of Film Classification James Ferman refused to allow it on video for 15 years), William Friedkin’s THE EXORCIST is still considered one of the most horrifying movies ever made.
This 50th anniversary reissue of THE EXORCIST is the extended director’s cut, featuring additional scenes not seen during the film’s original cinema release.
