1973. USA. Dir: William Friedkin. With Ellen Burstyn, Max Von Sydow. 122 min.
What an excellent evening for an exorcism! The story of two priests desperately trying to evict Satan from Linda Blair becomes a cinematic assault of shock, nausea, and undiluted horror. Afterwards, when you lie awake in the still, quiet hours of the night, perhaps you can convince yourself “it’s only a movie, right?”
