Interesting documentary of why The Exorcist was filmed
5 August 2000 | by (Kent, England) – See all my reviews

Shows a reconstruction of the alleged demonic possession of a 13 year old boy from Washington, DC which inspired William Peter Blattey's novel "The Exorcist" and consequent film by William Friedkin.

Documentary includes interviews with witnesses of the event and a psychologist who tries to explain the science of how the possession could have taken place.
