I have been a big fan of exorcism and demon movies for a long time. I have studied the real subject, but fictional stories can be a fun break from serious subject matter. Of all the films on this subject, probably the very best is the infamous The Exorcist. The film was based on a book by William Peter Blatty and the first to tackle this subject in such a graphic and realistic manner. It is to this day one of the most frightening films I have seen. The following is a collection of information, facts, and quotes that you will find interesting, so have fun!
