The Margos revisit the 1971 novel The Exorcist written by the very interesting William Peter Blatty. Based on a true-ish story about a boy possessed by a demon in the 1950s, Blatty changed some key details to create this fiction classic. Director William Friedkin in 1973 just came off an incredible spate of box office successes, including 1971’s The French Connection earning him an Academy Award for Best Director.

The Exorcist became the biggest financial success of his career but turned out to be something of a curse as well. The hosts read the book, watched the movie, and decided which they liked better in this episode. Plus, they talk about trivia about the book and movie. In this episode, they discuss The backstory of the “real” exorcism from the 1950s Author William Peter Blatty’s writing process, The story behind the major casting choices, How some of the more famous scenes were created, The supposed “Exorcist” curse.
