14-year-old Regan (Linda Blair) is plagued by increasingly violent fits and bizarre behaviors. When medical intervention fails, her actress mother (Ellen Burstyn) calls in the demon-fighting priests (Max von Sydow and Jason Miller).
Director William Friedkin (THE FRENCH CONNECTION, SORCERER) set a new standard for the possession film with William Peter Blatty's adaptation of his bestselling novel. Nominated for 10 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director, THE EXORCIST took home Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound.
THE EXORCIST is presented here in the Extended Director's Cut from 2000.
