Regan is displaying some bizarre symptoms, and her devoted mother has consulted several doctors, but none of them can offer her a solution. Desperate, the mother finds help in a priest, who argues that the girl’s illness isn’t physical, but spiritual. A classic among classics, the history of horror couldn’t be explained without little Regan’s contortions.
Chicago, 1935. His filmography includes classics like The French Connection (71) and The Exorcist (73). Recently he’s reappeared on the fringe of indie cinema thanks to Bug (06) and Killer Joe (11).
