Part of Midnight Movies.
When young Regan (Linda Blair) starts acting odd—levitating, speaking in tongues —her worried mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks medical help, only to hit a dead end. A local priest (Jason Miller), however, thinks the girl may be seized by the devil. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert (Max von Sydow) to help with the difficult job. The film that terrified a generation hits the Belcourt screens for the first time in its full director’s cut version.
