Countdown to Halloween: What an excellent day for an exorcism

Posted: October 28th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , | 2 Comments »

The Exorcist is an undisputed heavyweight in the world of horror, and it sure as hell earns its rank with terrifying and tension-filled scenes that make even hardcore atheists wonder if they should start crossing themselves.

One aspect that gets overlooked in the middle of all the head-twisting and pea soup-spewing, though, is the truly great performance of Linda Blair as Regan. It’s true that possessed-Regan’s voice was dubbed by Mercedes McCambridge, but this clip of Blair giving her undubbed performance shows the 13-year-old was pretty good in her own right.

None of this explains what the deal was with everything she made after The Exorcist, but that’s Pazuzu for you.
