William Friedkin's masterful horror, considered by many as one of the scariest films of all time. Winner of two Oscars and four Golden Globes in 1973.
When teenager Regan (Linda Blair) is possessed by a mysterious entity, her mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks the help of two priests (Max von Sydow, Jason Miller) to save her daughter.
There have been several re-releases and Director's Cut versions, notably including the infamous spider-walk scene in which Regan scurries down stairs on all fours, arched over backwards, and vomits blood.
