Episode 4: The Exorcist (1973) - Captain Howdy's Pea Soup Part‪y‬ Horror Movie Maniacs

    • Film History

We discuss one of the most talked about movies in horror history - William Friedkin's The Exorcist. Did you know it was based on a true story? We go though the movie (both versions), talking about many behind the scenes stories, the cast, the themes and intricacies of the plot as well as our thoughts and feelings about the film. We also discuss Friedkin's filming methods, William Peter Blatty (who wrote the screenplay and the novel it was based on) and the fact that some people to this day believe the movie to be cursed.
