In "The Exorcist", a priest, Father Merrin (Max von Sidow) discovers something incredibly evil while on an archaeological dig in Northern Iraq. For Father Merrin, this did not come too unexpectedly as he had an experience with this kind of evil before. Across the world, a girl, Regan (Linda Blair) becomes possessed by an incredibly evil entity, and her loving mother (Ellen Burstyn) struggles to provide her daughter with medical care to cure her of her seemingly incurable condition. Another priest, Damien Karras (Jason Miller) must deal with a terrible tragedy in his life while also struggling with his faith and, ultimately, both priests are called upon to perform an exorcism to save the girl's life, and to do battle with the evil of all evils. Each of these characters face incredible horror in their lives and all of the subplots come together brilliantly by movie's end to create a masterpiece in "The Exorcist". Many people consider "The Exorcist" the most powerful horror movie ever made.
