Description: The American Cinematheque presents the 1973 horror classic on the bottom half of a double bill with SORCERER (1977), both directed by William Friedkin, who will appear between screenings to discuss the films.

Friedkin adapted William Peter Blatty’s bone-chilling best-seller into the classic American horror film in which Catholic priests Jason Miller and Max von Sydow go head-to-head with the unholy one, inhabiting the body of young Linda Blair. “I auditioned 500 girls and went with Linda because I felt she was the most intelligent, most pulled-together youngster I had ever met.” – Friedkin. With Ellen Burstyn. [35mm] Warner Bros., 121 min
