Perhaps the most notorious big-budget horror film ever made, our new anthology of essays on The Exorcist includes four hundred pages of insightful criticism, including interviews with William Peter Blatty (on the making of The Exorcist), William Friedkin, Jason Miller, and Dick Smith. The essays cover the film, the sequels, and the two different prequels, with a new interview with Paul Schrader. Loaded with color and black and white stills,behind-the-scenes photographs, and an exhaustive bibliography, this is the ultimate guide to one of cinema's most enduring movies.
