THE EXORCIST

Original Theatrical Date:

  • OSCAR WINNER:
  • Best Screenplay Adaptation
  • Best Sound
  • Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including "Best Picture," The Exorcist was controversial and extremely popular from the moment it opened in 1973.

    This is the frightening and realistic tale of an innocent girl (Oscar-nominated Linda Blair) inhabited by a terrifying entity, her mother's frantic resolve to save her (Ellen Burstyn in her own Oscar-nominated performance) and two priests - one doubt-ridden, the other a rock of faith - who come together in a battle of ultimate evil.

    To this day, The Exorcist leaves viewers breathless. The greatest supernatural thriller of all-time astonishes and unsettles like no other movie before or since.
