In 1973 Hell came home and invaded the body of a young girl. This is the story of a movie and its makers. It's a tale of dark and light, of loss and love. A story of faith and fury, of causes and curses, of horrors real and imagined, of unbridled ego and brute force filmmaking. It's the movie critics called "religious pornography" and "occultist claptrap." The movie that left audiences...hysterical. Decades later, it remains perhaps the most frightening movie we will ever see. From Wondery, this is a seven-part deep dive inspired by the story behind an unforgettable, classic movie. This is...Inside The Exorcist.

Well Done!

A great podcast - interesting content and outstanding production.

Disappointing.

I only listened to The Exorcist series, and just that felt like a chore. The writing is so hokey and so strangely delivered. I was expecting a more historical, objective look at the film but it’s so littered with badly acted, made-up dialogue that I felt like I couldn’t trust what they tried to present as fact.

The exorcist

Great content, informative and the production is great. It gets old hearing the same guy playing all of the characters, though.
