The Demon'And Jesus asked him What is your name? And he answered Legion for we are many' Mark 59The book is well written and flows very nicely All the characters are well developed and life like All the characters have their personal demons and struggle with them in the story The overall tone throughout the book is eerie and solemn For me this is tied with Stephen King's Salem's Lot for creepiness I would highly recommend this to anyone Thanks

William Peter Blatty Ô The Exorcist text

Ity and respecttoo many horror films are made today that just don't tryit's as if they give up half way through and fall into self parody and amusementthe Exorcist is an exception and one of the very few good horror films aroundthe film works on a number of levels and is one of the The Exorcist Toute l'actualit | melty La semaine prochaine FOX diffusera l'pisode de The Exorcist ui se dvoile via son synopsis et une premire vido promo il y a ans The Exorcist Episode Casey est l'agonie notre L'Exorciste version longue un film de William L'Exorciste version longue un film de William Friedkin | Synopsis A Washington Regan fille de l'actrice Chris McNeil prsente de curieux symptmes p A masterpieceunualified unadulterated and uneualed How better to describe the definitive 40th Anniversary edition of one of THE classic horror novels of the 20th centuryrendered in audio format and narrated with passion verve and pitch perfect delivery by William P Blatty himselfI’ve seen both the original and extended remastered versions of The Exorcist several times and believe it ranks among the finest horror films ever made Until this week I had never read the source novel Now that I have let me add to the film’s list of accolades that it's also one of the best film adaptations of a classic novel that I have experienced along with The Princess Bride and No Country for Old Men I’m going to test the limb and walk out onto it by assuming that most people even if for some inexplicable or metaphysical reason have not either read the book or seen the movie are familiar enough with the basic plot that I can dispense with any fear of spoilers A sweet pre teen girl gets soul jacked by a demon and proceeds to expel various manner of noxious excreta from her various orifices while hurling barbs and insults than a Don Rickles standup routine Throw in a grizzled exorcist a dogged detective and a Jesuit priest with serious mommy issues whose suffering a crisis of faith and you’ve got the playbill for this diabolical dance of dread Thus wifhout worrying about spoilage I am going to mention briefly what struck me most about the book and then finish with a uick “compare and contrast” describing where I thought the film and the novel respectively were the superior product First and foremost the single most impressive aspect of the book for me was the dense lushtastically beautiful prose employed by Blatty while converting this story from mind to paper Given that Blatty did not become a prolific author to my knowledge at least I always assumed that the novel was standard fair that had just received a fabulous hollywood makeover into a successful film Not only was I all the way wrong but the film actually loses the rich psychologically melodramatic flavor of Blatty’s verse In the novel everything is hyper real and a casual look or a fleeting feeling might be imbued with vast significance A little like an updated version of Lovecraft meets Tolstoy meets Kafka I thought it was wonderful and attained the rank of esteemed literature in my opinion A heart felt BOO YAH to Mr Blatty for his slick stylish sentencing Okay let’s compare a contrast shall weMovie was Better than the BookWarning shots from the film below may be shocking to someThe visual effects employed in the movie were so megascream scary at a gut level that they had my twig and berries crawling up my tummy to nuzzle against my liver Thus most of the following are moments in which the written word of Blatty just couldn’t compete on the terror scale with the film Beginning with1 The Face of Evil The transformation of nice innocent Linda Blair into one of the foulest fugliest freak shows in film history is something that the book could not adeuately convey The mismatched demonic eyesthe pasty cracked and scrobiculated skin the raspy “Barry White with a head cold” voiceit’s enough to cause temporary motor ataxia The book as good as it was could not match this kind of visual perfection for visceral terror2 The “Crucifix” Scene We all know the scene I’m talking about so let’s not belabor the point and allow this to slide into something we might all regret Let’s all just back away and proceed without further comment except maybe a cringing ouch baby very ouch 3 The “Owl Head” scene Up next after “the #1 thing never to do with a Crucifix” is the immediately following scene in which little Regan does the full 360 degree spine defying glance around I almost dropped my digesting dinner when I first saw it If you are ever feeling irregular this scene works better than a bran muffin and cup of coffee 4 The “Crab Walk” scene Only in the “extended” version this bit of demonic gymnastics really shivered my timbers 5 Three words Max Van Sydow Nuff said The Book was Better than the MovieIn general in almost every particular beyond the items mentioned above the book was superior to the film and in some cases vastly so Here are just the top reasons that come to mind1 Again the Writing I know I knowI mentioned this above but dammit it really is that good Blatty’s prose sucks you in with his vivid impassioned prose that employs “over the top” nuance to make every step in the story feel like a necessary critical piece of the puzzle I can understand some feeling smothered by the narrative but I found it enthralling 2 The Demon This was one of several key pieces of information that did not translate well on the screen The film leads the audience to believe that the demon possessing Regan is Satan himself This is based in the uote “I’m Father Karras” and the response “and I’m the Devil” However the book goes on to make clear that the demon is actually just thata demon named Pazuzu This ties into the beginning of the film 3 Is it Real? The movie leaves no doubt that Regan was possessed and that she is saved when the demon jumps ship into Father Karras before the now possessed priest does a Greg Louganis out of the window While mostly free from doubt the novel does a superb job of leaving just enough of a crack open so that the uestion is never completely answered I thought this added a substrate of eeriness to the story 4 Father Dyer and Detective Kinderman I may be one of the few people that loved Exorcist III not to be confused with the visual turd known as Exorcist II One of my favorite aspects of E3 was the witty banter and close friendship between Father Dyer and Bill Kinderman played by George C Scott Turns out a chunk of their dialogue came from this book and their relationship is developed to a significant extent in these pages Major bonus for me 5 The Smell and Sound of Evil Just as the book could not compete with the visual perfection of the film the film could not for obvious reasons come close to imbuing its telling with the stench described in the novel The number of times Regan befouls her bed and deposits her insides as an act of belligerence towards Regan’s mom or the priests is an aspect of the novel that adds to the vileness of the demon inhabiting this sweet little girl Also the dialogue is far severe in the book than the movie could likely have gotten away with at the time 6 Satanic Worship One fascinating aspect of the novel that was completely cut from the film is the in depth and detailed depiction of Satanic worship and some of the disgusting sacrilegious practices performed at black masses This was almost wholly absent in the film but made for compelling reading Overall I loved the movie but think the novel far surpasses it in its artistic merit It is a true classic and one that I can not give a stronger recommendation for fans of horror This was a special and very memorable experience Thank you Mr Blatty 50 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATIONI

I did some research It seems that William Peter Blatty finished writing the rough draft of this book and was offered a lucrative screenwriting job and never polished the book An editor obviously not someone in the same category as Maxwell Perkins allowed the book to go to print as basically a rough draft Decades later Blatty is asked to read the book for the audio version He kept having to stop to ask “who wrote this crap?” This story does have a happy ending Blatty went back through and polished and rewrote and even added a critical scene to the book It was released in time for the fortieth anniversary edition William Peter Blatty looking like he is ready for his casting call for a spaghetti westernThe Dodge City Public library they never has anything I absolutely need immediately had a copy of the fortieth anniversary edition Hallelujah Praise the book gods The difference between the books is a two star rating which I was already worried about how I was going to explain that rating to the legions of fans out there and a four star rating which is much easier and much fun to write a review for So if you have thoughts of reading this book make sure you read the fortieth anniversary edition because as Blatty stated ”This is the version I would like to be remembered for”This is a novel about a demon possession of a twelve year old girl but Blatty also spends a good amount of time explaining the other psychological aspects that could be causing the symptoms other than a demonic possession The priest Damien Karras who also happens to be a psychologist finds himself confronting not only an evil entity beyond his wildest imaginations but also his personal struggles with his own faith He is damaged dark and broodinga magnet for women if he were interested Jason Miller is Damien Karras in the movie ”As he lifted the Host in consecration it trembled in his fingers with a hope that he dared not hope that he fought with every particle and fiber of his will “‘For this is My body’” he intoned with a whispered intensityNo it’s bread It’s nothing but breadHe dared not love again and lose That loss was too great that pain too keen The cause of his skepticism and his doubts his attempts to eliminate natural causes in the case of Regan’s seeming possession was the fiery intensity of his yearning to be able to believe He bowed his head and placed the consecrated Host in his mouth where in a moment it would stick in the dryness of his throat And of his faith”The thought that kept going through my head as I read this book is if you find proof of the devil or a demon or even true evil doesn't that mean you’ve found proof of God? Glory be to God for dappled thingsFor skies of couple color as a brindled cow;For rose moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;Fresh fire coal chestnut falls; finches’ wingsHe fathers forth whose beauty is past changePraise him Regan or Rags as her mother likes to call her starts exhibiting strange behavior talking in tongues and levitating It is never really explained how or why she becomes possessed Unless I somehow missed that part Changing editions midstream has me a little worried about that as I did not go back and read the hundred or so pages that I’d read before the switch She goes from being a creative likable normal twelve year old girl into something that is not only horrifying but barely recognizable as human Linda Blair played Regan in the famous movie version ”Reining in his revulsion he closed the door and then his eyes locked stunned on the thing that was Regan on the creature that was lying on its back on the bed head propped against a pillow while eyes bulged wide in their hollow sockets shone with mad cunning and burning intelligence with interest and with spite as they fixed upon his; as they watched him intently seething in a face shaped into a skeletal mask of unthinkable malevolence Karras shifted his gaze to the tangled and thickly matted hair; to the wasted arms and legs and distended stomach jutting up so grotesuely; then back to the eyes they were watching himpinning him” TransformedTerrifying stuff ”Reuested and performed exorcisms had begun to decline in the Western world by the 18th century due to advancements in medical understanding and occurred rarely until the latter half of the 20th century when the public saw a sharp rise due to the media attention exorcisms were getting There was “a 50% increase in the number of exorcisms performed between the early 1960s and the mid 1970s”Media suggested hysteria Iconic shot from the movieThe church has a priest who had performed the last exorcism in 1949 He is an elderly Jesuit priest named Lankester Merrin The two priests know they are over their heads but in a true act of courage and faith take on the demon No need for details as I’m sure most of you have seen the movie and if you have not I would encourage you to read the book before watching the movie The movie was nominated for ten academy awards and grossed over 441 million worldwide No wonder the demand for priests and their knowledge of exorcisms went up exponentially The tour of 1970s horror will continue with Jaws Stay tuned ADDENDUMMy friend Gary Wyatt supplied me with a picture of the house where the famous exorcism case happened in 1949 This was the case that inspired William Peter Blatty to write this book Instead of a girl this case involved a thirteen year old boy named Roland Doe Walter Halloran a Catholic priest of the Society of Jesus performed the exorcism The setting St Louis Missouri Exorcism House in St LouisIf you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
