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.

Inside the Exorcist

Although I find the story very interesting and I am quite fascinated listening there is a small change that I would make, if it were me. I love the music and the scary sounds that add so much to the story but they are so much louder than the words, that I find myself turning up the volume to be able to hear the speaking parts And then instantly being bombarded by background sounds that are thundering in my head. I think the type of sound out enough without it being so amplified. I am a little bit older and my hearing is not perfect but I so enjoyed listening to these podcasts and it’s hard to enjoy when I’m constantly messing with sound. However – keep up the great story lines!

This is a great production of the making of several legendary films. I can’t get enough and am looking forward to more.

Great Podcast!!!

Great podcast! It starts off a little slow with the first episode but once it gets into the making of the Exorcist it really gets interesting!

The list of people involved are fascinating filled with drama, tragedy, egos and self destruction.

The docudrama style was a creative device I thought I would not like. But after listening I was hooked! The docudrama style really added a new dimension to the stories of all the people involved in this production!

Great series and really looking forward to more!
