The Exorcist – The True Story Behind the Hollywood Movie

by | Apr 22, 2021

The Exorcist may very well be one of the best horror film ever made, but it’s tone and atmosphere are all derive from the screen play developed by William Peter Blatty, which was based on a novel Blatty wrote by the same name. The novel was inspired by a 1949 case of demonic possession and exorcism that Blatty heard about while he was a student in the class of 1950 at Georgetown University. This is why the setting for worlds scariest film ever made is that of Washington, D.C., near the campus of Georgetown University. The real life exorcism of a young boy from Cottage City, Maryland, is what ultimately made up the outline of the novel and film, with shaking beds, violent  assaults’ and talking in strange languages all being key points ripped from m the reported exorcism. Exploring this theme further is horror host Extravaganza Grotesque, with a video that investigates the true story behind The Exorcist. This dark path from non-fiction to terrifying theatrical fiction is a creepy one indeed. So horror fans, grab an old priest and a young priest and prepare for a scare as we travel into The Exorcist – The True Story Behind the Hollywood Movie! Enjoy…
