Inside The Exorcist: A Podcast Experience
In 1973 Hell came home and invaded the body of a young girl. This is the story of a movie and its makers. It's a tale of dark and light, of loss and love. A story of faith and fury, of causes and curses, of horrors real and imagined, of unbridled ego and brute force filmmaking. It's the movie critics called "religious pornography" and "occultist claptrap." The movie that left audiences...hysterical. Decades later, it remains perhaps the most frightening movie we will ever see. From Wondery, this is a seven-part deep dive inspired by the story behind an unforgettable, classic movie. This is...INSIDE THE EXORCIST. (In English)
5. The Power of Christ Compels You
Friedkin wants to shoot the opening sequence of The Exorcist in Iraq, but first he has to teach the Iraqis how to make fake blood.
6. The Rapture
Audiences break down the doors to see the movie. Hysteria ensues: Vomiting, fainting, heart attacks, and more
Fantastic blend of fact and fiction! I really enjoyed this.
it was very enjoyable
I wish it was longer!!!
Great mix of fiction/fact/speculation, can't begrudge the podcasters for a little poetic license for the sake of narrative. Great listen, great concept. 4/5💀. My only wish would be a few more voice actors (am I the only ine who thinks the host sounds exactly like a young Dennis Miller?).
I'm just sad it didn't last longer!
