THE EXORCIST 50th Anniversary Screening & Talk This Saturday In Melbourne

If you like us just can’t get enough of demonic possession following Lee Gambin, Sally Christie & Hande Noyan’s ‘What an Excellent Day for an Exorcism‘ talk last week at Monster Fest in Melbourne, good news…

Cinemaniacs are presenting a 50th Anniversary Screening of William Friedkin‘s classic THE EXORCIST in its Original Theatrical Cut and Newly Restored in 4K this Saturday at ACMI accompanied by pre-film presentation and focus on the character of Chris MacNeil by film critic/historian Lee Gambin.

This cinematic landmark about a successful film actress whose life is turned upside down when her young daughter exhibits out of the ordinary physical, mental and emotional states of being that baffle physicians and psychiatrists is an undisputed masterpiece. Based on the novel by William Peter Blatty, directed by William Friedkin and starring Ellen Burstyn as the distraught actress facing the horrors that are unleashed through her demonically possessed daughter Regan (Linda Blair), The Exorcist details the essence of tangible evils and puts them in context when dealing with harrowing supernatural ones.
