The Exorcist

Adaptation of the novel by William Peter Blatty that was inspired by a real exorcism that took place in Washington in 1949. Regan, a twelve-year-old girl, is the victim of paranormal phenomena such as levitation or the manifestation of superhuman strength. Her mother, terrified after submitting her daughter to multiple medical tests that yield no results, turns to a priest with psychiatric studies. He, convinced that the evil is not physical but spiritual, that is, it is a diabolical possession, decides to perform an exorcism. Probably the most popular horror movie of all time.
