127 Mins
Released
1973

Linda Blair stars as Regan, a 12-year-old girl whose increasingly bizarre behaviour becomes too much for her mother (Ellen Burstyn) to handle. As her daughter's condition worsens she calls in a young priest, Father Karras (Jason Miller). Karras becomes convinced that the girl is possessed by a demon. As Karras arranges an exorcism the demon's rage intensifies. In a bid to save the young girl, blood is shed and lives are lost in this shocking 70s horror based on a William Peter Blatty novel. Very strong language and bloody supernatural horror violence.

Did you know?

  • Ellen Burstyn agreed to star in this movie as long as her character didn't have to say the scripted line 'I believe in the devil'.
  • To give the impression that Regan's bedroom was freezing, four air conditioners were used and temperatures plummeted below freezing.
  • The thick green vomit that Regan throws up while possessed is actually pea soup.
  • On the first day of filming the exorcism sequence, Linda Blair's foul-mouthed delivery of her lines so shocked Max von Sydow that he forgot his lines.
