Loosely based on real-life events, The Exorcist is the story of 14-year-old Regan, possessed by an ancient demon, and the adults around her grappling with forces beyond their understanding. With highly effective special effects, a sexually charged atmosphere and enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seats, The Exorcist is one of the rare horror film that has passed the test of time.
