2013 Dallas International Film Festival: The Exorcist


In one of the most iconic horror movies ever made, a visiting actress Christine “Chris” McNeil (Ellen Burstyn) and her daughter experience strange and life-threatening phenomena in their Washington, D.C. home. Following unexplained bumps in the night, 12-year-old Regan (Linda Blair) begins to exhibit unusual then downright paranormal behavior, including violent outbursts, facial lesions and the ability to talk in tongues.

Desperate for help, Chris enlists the aid of Father Karras, a thoughtful but conflicted priest who doubts the severity of Regan’s situation until it’s almost too late. Together with Father Merrin, a veteran in exorcism, Father Karras battles to save the young girl from the powerful demon inside her.

Director William Friedkin will be hand for a conversation following the film.
