31 Days of Horror: Day 2 Movie: The Exorcist

Every year we have a tradition in the Forto house where we celebrate the greatest month of the year, October, with scare your socks off, hide under the covers, turn on all the lights, sleep with one eye open, fright fest, movie marathon every night of the month! We call it 31 Days of Horror.

31 Days of Horror: Day 2 Movie: The Exorcist

Day 2 Movie: The Exorcist (1973)

The Exorcist one of my all time favorite horror movies. It is a classic! It was so scary back in 1973 that they wanted to give it a ‘X’ rating. It was such a shocking tale of terror that during its release during Christmas of 1973 the viewing audience fled from the theaters in sheer freight and horror. The Exorcist was one of the few horror movies ever nominated for an Academy Award (which it one two–Best adapted screen play and  Best Sound).

Based on the 1971 Best Selling book by William Peter Blatty’s book of the same name, this horror mater piece is sure to turn the heads of everyone that watches it. Even 37 years later it still ranks among the most horrifying pictures of all time.

Plot: A visiting actress in Washington, D.C., notices dramatic and dangerous changes in the behavior and physical make-up of her 12-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, a young priest at nearby Georgetown University begins to doubt his faith while dealing with his mother’s terminal sickness. And, book-ending the story, a frail, elderly priest recognizes the necessity for a show-down with an old demonic enemy.

This movie has brought chills to the Forto household for years and we even named our first Siberian Husky pup after the main character (though we spell it Raegan instead of Reagan like the former President).
