When young Regan Linda Blair starts acting odd -- levitating, speaking in tongues -- her worried mother Ellen Burstyn seeks medical help, only to hit a dead end.
A local priest Jason Miller , however, thinks the girl may be seized by the devil. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert Max von Sydow to help with the difficult job.
William Friedkin. William Peter Blatty. Jul 24, Warner Brothers, Hoya Productions. The Exorcist. Da schlägt einer der Ärzte vor, es mit Exorzismus zu versuchen.
Dies sei zwar eine fragwürdige Methode und habe nichts mit den von der Kirche behaupteten Vorgängen zu tun, aber hin und wieder könne so eine Teufelsaustreibung durch die suggestive Wirkung psychosomatische Störungen beseitigen.
In ihrer Verzweiflung und Angst um ihre Tochter wendet sich Chris an Damien Karras. Sie ist inzwischen davon überzeugt, dass Regan in ihrer Besessenheit Dennings umgebracht hat.
Der Jesuit weigert sich zunächst, das aus dem Mittelalter stammende Ritual überhaupt in Betracht zu ziehen, aber Chris drängt ihn, sich ihre inzwischen auf dem Bett festgebundene, schrecklich verunstaltete, blasphemische , obszöne , schreiende, geifernde und sich windende Tochter Regan anzusehen.
Durch mehrere Besuche kommt der unter Glaubenszweifeln leidende Geistliche zu der Überzeugung, dass Regan tatsächlich von einem Dämon besessen ist.
Bischof Michael erlaubt den Exorzismus unter der Bedingung, dass er von einem erfahrenen Pater wie Lankester Merrin vorgenommen wird und Karras nur als Assistent mitwirkt.
Die beiden Jesuiten beginnen mit der Teufelsaustreibung. Als Karras nach kurzer Abwesenheit wieder in Regans Zimmer zurückkommt, findet er Merrin tot vor.
Karras erhält in der Stunde seines Todes die Absolution von Pater Dyer, der ihm die Beichte abnimmt. Regan ist vom Bösen befreit und wieder ein liebenswürdiges Mädchen.
Die Spezialeffekte, die sich wohlweislich in Grenzen halten, sind stellenweise wirklich furchterregend, wenn auch relativ leicht zu durchschauen.
Farbe und Ton werden auf kreative Weise eingesetzt. Die Wogen einer erhitzten, durchaus ernsthaften Diskussion, die der Horrorfilm selbst in seriösen Kirchenkreisen schlug, wurde bislang keinem anderen Werk dieses Genres beschieden.

Barton Heyman Director William Friedkin's film will be profoundly disturbing to all audiences, especially the more sensitive and those who tend to 'live' the movies they see… Suffice it to say, there has never been anything like this on the screen before".
However, Vincent Canby , writing in The New York Times , dismissed The Exorcist as "a chunk of elegant occultist claptrap… [A] practically impossible film to sit through… it establishes a new low for grotesque special effects…"  Andrew Sarris complained that "Friedkin's biggest weakness is his inability to provide enough visual information about his characters… whole passages of the movie's exposition were one long buzz of small talk and name droppings… The Exorcist succeeds on one level as an effectively excruciating entertainment, but on another, deeper level it is a thoroughly evil film".
DeMille minus that gentleman's wit and ability to tell a story …" . Over the years, The Exorcist ' s critical reputation has grown considerably.
However, the movie has its detractors as well, including Kim Newman who has criticized it for messy plot construction, conventionality and overblown pretentiousness, among other perceived defects.
Writer James Baldwin provides an extended negative critique in his book-length essay The Devil Finds Work. II: Stephen H. Scheuer wrote that Exorcist II "may just well be the worst sequel in the history of films — a stupefying, boring, vapid and non-scary follow-up to the box-office champ of … Exorcist II is a disaster on every level — a sophomoric script, terrible editing, worst direction by John Boorman, inevitably coupled with silly acting.
In one scene that typifies this lamentable sci-fi horror pic, [Richard] Burton and [James Earl] Jones, two splendid actors, are spouting inane dialogue while Jones is outfitted like a witch doctor".
It was released in two versions and is unintelligible in either". While most reviewers responded negatively to the film, Pauline Kael greatly preferred Boorman's sequel to the original, writing in her review in The New Yorker that Exorcist II "had more visual magic than a dozen movies".
Since Exorcist II's initial release, some notable critics and directors have praised the film. Kim Newman wrote in Nightmare Movies that "it doesn't work in all sorts of ways… However, like Ennio Morricone's mix of tribal and liturgical music, it does manage to be very interesting".
Director Martin Scorsese asserted, "The picture asks: Does great goodness bring upon itself great evil?
This goes back to the Book of Job ; it's God testing the good. In this sense, Regan Linda Blair is a modern-day saint-like Ingrid Bergman in Europa '51 , and in a way, like Charlie in Mean Streets.
I like the first Exorcist , because of the Catholic guilt I have, and because it scared the hell out of me; but The Heretic surpasses it. Maybe Boorman failed to execute the material, but the movie still deserved better than it got".
Author Bob McCabe's book The Exorcist: Out of the Shadows contains a chapter on the film in which Linda Blair said the movie "was one of the big disappointments of my career",  and John Boorman confessed that "The sin I committed was not giving the audience what it wanted in terms of horror… There's this wild beast out there which is the audience.
Boorman's illness and constant revising of the script can't have helped, but these events alone are not enough to explain the film's almighty failure.
Boorman has certainly gone on to produce some fine work subsequently… When a list was compiled to find the fifty worst films of all time, Exorcist II: The Heretic came in at number two.
It was beaten only by Ed Wood 's Plan 9 from Outer Space , a film that generally receives a warmer response from its audience than this terribly misjudged sequel".
III: The film met with mixed reviews. The New York Times reviewer Vincent Canby said " The Exorcist III is a better and funnier intentionally movie than either of its predecessors".
It can seem as if nothing is going on in them except dim murmurings about the original movie—murmurings that mostly remind you of what isn't being delivered".
Gleiberman called The Exorcist III "an ash-gray disaster" and that it "has the feel of a nightmare catechism lesson or a horror movie made by a depressed monk".
The Exorcist was nominated for a total of ten Academy Awards in At the 46th Annual Academy Awards ceremony, the film won two statuettes.
The Exorcist was nominated for a total of seven Golden Globes in He then called Friedkin and said that since The Exorcist was "an important film", he would allow it to receive an R rating without any cuts.
Some critics, both anticipating and reacting to reports of the film's effect on children who might be or had been taken to see it, questioned the R rating.
While he had praised the film, Roy Meacham, a critic for Metromedia television stations based in Washington, D.
Nevertheless, some had, and he had heard of one girl being taken from the theater in an ambulance. In Washington, the film drew strong interest as well since it was a rare film set in the area that did not involve government activity.
He suggested that the ratings board had somehow yielded to pressure from Warners not to give the film an X rating, which would have likely limited its economic prospects, and was skeptical of MPAA head Jack Valenti 's claims that since the film had no sex or nudity, it could receive an R.
After a week in Washington's theaters, Meacham recalled, authorities cited the crucifix scene to invoke a local ordinance that forbid minors from seeing any scenes with sexual content even where the actors were fully clothed; police warned theaters that staff would be arrested if any minors were admitted to The Exorcist.
He feared that, as a result, communities across the country would feel it necessary to pass their own, perhaps more restrictive, laws regarding the content of movies that could be shown in their jurisdictions: "For if the movie industry cannot provide safeguards for minors, authorities will have to".
Two communities, Boston and Hattiesburg, Mississippi , attempted to prevent the film from being shown outright in their jurisdictions.
A court in the former city blocked the ban, saying the film did not meet the U. Supreme Court 's standard of obscenity.
California decision which laid down a new standard for obscenity. New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael echoed Meacham's insinuations that the board had yielded to studio pressure in rating the film R: "If The Exorcist had cost under a million or been made abroad, it would almost certainly be an X film.
But when a movie is as expensive as this one, the [board] doesn't dare give it an X". There was also concern that theaters were not strictly enforcing, or even enforcing at all, the R rating, allowing unaccompanied minors to view the film.
Times critic Lawrence Van Gelder reported that a year-old girl in California said that not only was she sold a ticket to see the film despite no adult being with her, others who seemed even younger were able to do so as well.
Nevertheless, "I think that if a movie ever deserved an X rating simply because it would keep the kids out of the theater, it is The Exorcist ".
In , Stern's tenure as chairman of the MPAA ratings board ended. His eventual replacement, Richard Heffner , asked during the interview process about films with controversial ratings, including The Exorcist , said: "How could anything be worse than this?
And it got an R? The Exorcist was released in London on March 14, These protests involved members of local clergy and concerned citizens handing out leaflets to those queuing to see the film, offering spiritual support afterwards for those who asked for it.
The Exorcist was available on home video from in the UK. James Ferman , Director of the Board, vetoed the decision to grant a certificate to the film, despite the majority of the group willing to pass it.
It was out of Ferman's concerns that, even with a proposed 18 certificate , the film's notoriety would entice underage viewers to seek it out.
As a result, all video copies of The Exorcist were withdrawn in the UK in and remained unavailable for purchase until Following a successful re-release in cinemas in , the film was submitted for home video release again in February ,  and was passed uncut with an 18 certificate , signifying a relaxation of the censorship rules with relation to home video in the UK, in part due to James Ferman's departure.
The film was shown on terrestrial television in the UK for the first time in , on Channel 4. The Exorcist set box office records that stood for many years.
For almost half a century, until the adaptation of Stephen King 's It , it was the top-grossing R-rated horror film.
Since its release, The Exorcist ' s critical reputation has grown considerably. The site's critics consensus states: " The Exorcist rides its supernatural theme to magical effect, with remarkable special effects and an eerie atmosphere, resulting in one of the scariest films of all time".
It's absolutely true with The Exorcist — it reflects the anxieties of the audience. Some people think it's an outright horror-fest, but I don't.
It was written by a devout Catholic who hoped it would make people think positively about the existence of God.
William Peter Blatty, who wrote the book, thought that if there are demons then there are also angels and life after death.
He couldn't see why people thought it was scary. I've seen it about times and every time I see something I haven't seen before".
Director Martin Scorsese placed The Exorcist on his list of the 11 scariest horror films of all time. On December 26 a movie called The Exorcist opened in theatres across the country and since then all Hell has broken loose.
Despite its mixed reviews and the controversies over its content and viewer reaction, The Exorcist was a runaway hit.
The crowds gathered outside theaters, sometimes rioted, and police were called in to quell disturbances in not only New York but Kansas City.
The New York Times asked some of those in line what drew them there. Those who had read the novel accounted for about a third; they wanted to see if the film could realistically depict some of the scenes in the book.
Others said: "We're here because we're nuts and because we wanted to be part of the madness". A repeat viewer told the newspaper that it was the best horror film he had seen in decades, "much better than Psycho.
You feel contaminated when you leave the theater. There's something that is impossible to erase". Many made a point of saying that they had either never waited in line that long for a movie before, or not in a long time.
Reports of strong audience reactions were widespread; many including accounts of nausea and fainting. A woman in New York was said to have miscarried during a showing.
Other theaters arranged for ambulances to be on call. Some patrons had to be helped to leave the places they had hidden in theaters.
Despite its lack of any supernatural content, many audience members found the angiography, where blood spurts from the tube inserted into Regan's neck, to be the film's most unsettling scene Blatty says he has only watched it once, while the film was being edited, and avoids it on every other viewing.
In , The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease published a paper by a psychiatrist documenting four cases of what he called "cinematic neurosis " triggered by viewing the film.
In all he believed the neurosis was already present and merely triggered by viewing scenes in the film, particularly those depicting Regan's possession.
He recommended that treating physicians view the movie with their patient to help him or her identify the sources of their trauma.
Three separate production histories were published. Journalists complained that coverage of the film and its controversies was distracting the public from the ongoing Watergate scandal.
Much of the coverage, in fact, focused on the audience which, in the later words of film historian William Paul, "had become a spectacle equal to the film".
He cites an Associated Press cartoon in which a couple trying to purchase tickets to the film was told that while the film itself is sold out, "we're selling tickets to the lobby to watch the audience.
Within a year of The Exorcist ' s release, two films were quickly made that appeared to appropriate elements of its plot or production design.
Warner took legal action against the producers of both, accusing them of copyright infringement. The lawsuits resulted in one film being pulled from distribution and the other one having to change its advertisements.
Abby , released almost a year after The Exorcist , put a blaxploitation spin on the material. In it a Yoruba demon released during an archeological dig in Africa crosses the Atlantic Ocean and possesses the archaeologist's daughter at home in Kentucky.
Director William Girdler acknowledged the movie was intended to cash in on the success of The Exorcist. Warner's lawsuit early in resulted in most prints of the film being confiscated; the film has rarely been screened since and is not available on any home media.
Later, in , Warner Bros. Judge David W. Williams of the United States District Court for the Central District of California held first that since Blatty had based the character on what he was told was a true story, Regan was not original to either film and thus Warner could not hold a copyright on Regan.
Even if she had been a creation, she could not be copyrighted since she was subordinate to the story. The writers of the FVI film had also further distanced themselves from an infringement claim by having their possessed female, Jessica, be a pregnant adult woman.
However, he found that some of Beyond the Door ' s advertising graphics, such as an image of light coming from behind a door into a darkened room, and the letter "T" drawn as a Christian cross , were similar enough to those used to promote The Exorcist that the public could reasonably have been confused into thinking the two films were the same, or made by the same people, and enjoined FVI from further use of those graphics.
The film's success led Warner to initiate a sequel , one of the first times a studio had done that with a major film, launching a franchise.
While many of the classic horror films of the s, like Frankenstein and King Kong had spawned series of films over the decades, the practice had declined in the 60s, and although there had been some exceptions, like Bride of Frankenstein , most sequels had been considered secondary properties for the studios.
The other big-budget horror films made in the wake of The Exorcist also led to sequels and franchises of their own.
The Exorcist was nominated for ten Academy Awards in , winning two. It is the first horror film to be nominated for Best Picture.
In , Warner re-released the digitally remastered DVD of The Exorcist: 25th Anniversary Special Edition.
The DVD includes the BBC documentary, The Fear of God: The Making of The Exorcist ,  highlighting the never-before-seen original non-bloody variant of the spider-walk scene.
To appease the screenwriter and some fans of The Exorcist , Friedkin reinstated the bloody variant of the spider-walk scene for the theatrically re-released version of The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen.
Linda R. Hager, the lighting double for Linda Blair, was incorrectly credited for performing the stunt.
In , Warner Bros. The film has gone on to spawn multiple sequels and an overarching media franchise including a television series.
In August , it was announced that a reboot of the film is in the works from Morgan Creek Entertainment and slated for release in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
