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.

Story info

City is pronounced Rain-yer not Ra-neer. Even though it’s named after mountain in Washington state. My dad grew up there and was 5 at time of event. Priest who did exorcism married my aunt and uncle.

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