In part one, we discuss perhaps one of the most terrifying and iconic horror films of all time, “The Exorcist,” that stands the test of time in its ability to fill the audience with a sense of sweat-soaked terror and dread. It is a strange and gripping film filled with disturbing imagery and a lot of subtle – and not-so-subtle – symbolic meaning of a real exorcism that took place. Back in 1949, when the world was still very much collectively healing from the devastation of World War II, a young boy was said to have become possessed by a demon. It was this legendary tale about this possession and subsequent exorcism that formed the basis for both the novel and film adaptation of The Exorcist. Because of the controversial nature of the events that were said to occur, this young boy was given the pseudonym “Roland Doe” and a lot of other details were changed when William Peter Blatty wrote the novel.
