The Exorcist makes its scary radio debut

1 February 2014 5:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Radio 4 airs the classic of demonic possession – and promises a 'creeping, toxic' horror tale

A new version of The Exorcist, a film often considered one of the most frightening ever made, is to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 this month.

The audio drama will go out late in the evening on two consecutive nights and, according to producer and director Gaynor Macfarlane, will be just as scary as the film that caused widespread controversy in America and Britain when it was first released in 1973.

The adaptation will be based, like director William Friedkin's film, on the book of the same name by William Peter Blatty and will deal with the possession of a young girl, Regan, by a demon.

In a key scene in the film the victim's head appears to swivel on her neck as family and clerics attempt to rid her of satanic influences. MacFarlane said this »
