Here’s our recommendation for Day 10:
There are a lot of stories that surround this movie, some of them true, some of them not-so-true. This movie made so many people afraid for their soul that the Catholic Church saw a huge surge in the number of people who were attending services. (True.) This movie had a curse attached to it that caused at least nine people associated with the film, or associated with people who were associated with the film, to die. (Not so true.)
Based on a true story (I’ll not link it here – there are so many websites with so much varying information, I’d be sure to get it wrong), The Exorcist tells the story of Regan, a young girl who becomes possessed by the devil. The possession takes its toll on Regan, her family, and the priests who are trying to help her.
If you watch this one, be sure to get the “special edition”, which includes Regan’s backward-crab-walk down the stairs – it’s one of the creepiest things ever put to film.
