Something almost beyond comprehension is happening to a girl on this street, in this house... and a man has been sent for as a last resort. This man is The Exorcist.
12-year-old Regan MacNeil begins to adapt an explicit new personality as strange events befall the local area of Georgetown. Her mother becomes torn between science and superstition in a desperate bid to save her daughter, and ultimately turns to her last hope: Father Damien Karras, a troubled priest who is struggling with his own faith.

Pretty shocking for the seventies, I would imagine. Not at all a bad movie, however it is far from perfect. The pacing could be better, although it's definitely refreshing to actually get to know the characters a bit in a possession movie. The attention to details is great too - something seldom seen in movies in general today.

When I started watching this movie, I expected.. well, what we see in horror movies nowadays. But this movie turned out to be completely different and in a great way! This movie left a distinct impression on me. Great actors and even greater plot line!
