The Movie: 'The Exorcist' (1973)

The Scene: Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair) is a young girl living in Georgetown with her actress mother. When her behavior shifts dramatically, doctors and psychiatrists try to figure out why. When science fails, it's up to Fathers Merrin (Max von Sydow) and Karras (Jason Miller) to save her through the rite of exorcism. The resulting ritual is a terrifying and dangerous ordeal that puts all three parties in grave danger. Karras and Merrin risk the most, and some of the things they see and hear would test anyone's faith. During the battle between good and evil, the demon inside Regan shows its power by twisting the child's head in a complete 360. When Karras catches the demon in a lie, its response is to projectile vomit pea soup on the Priest. The holy men are undaunted by these events and continue in their quest to save the little girl's soul.
