It began on the day after Christmas in 1973. An unearthly screeching followed by the sound of the Islamic call to prayer pitched America headlong into the first screening of William Friedkin’s film, THE EXORCIST and launched one of the most terrifying and successful film franchises of all-time.
This October, Gateway Film Center, Warner Brothers, Morgan Creek and the Shout! Factory partner to bring you a rare double feature screening of THE EXORCIST DIRECTOR'S CUT and THE EXORCIST III: LEGION DIRECTOR'S CUT.
THE EXORCIST DIRECTOR'S CUT
William Friedkin (THE FRENCH CONNECTION) directs one of the most horrifying movies ever made. When a charming 12-year-old girl (Linda Blair) takes on the characteristics and voices of others, doctors say there is nothing they can do. As people begin to die, the girl's mother (Ellen Burstyn) realizes her daughter has been possessed by the devil--and that her daughter's only possible hope lies with two priests (Max Von Sydow, Jason Miller) and the ancient rite of demonic exorcism. Based on the novel by William Peter Blatty.
THE EXORCIST III: LEGION DIRECTOR'S CUT
Oscar-winning writer William Peter Blatty directs this long-anticipated follow-up to his Oscar and Golden Globe winning horror classic, THE EXORCIST. George C. Scott (PATTON) is a haunted homicide detective who is confronted by the apparent return of a brutal serial killer he helped send to the electric chair fifteen years earlier -- on the same day as the exorcism that killed his friend, Father Damien (Jason Miller). Part detective story, part theological mystery, and an unforgettable study in terror.
