William Friedkin directs one of the most horrifying movies ever made. Nominated for 10 Oscars and banned in the UK for over a decade THE EXORCIST presents a credible tale of the super natural that many have found too terrifying to endure. Back on the big screen to mark its 50th Anniversay it’s unflinching, brutal and ground-breaking within its own genre.
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 realizes 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.
