This full-length performance of THE EXORCIST will chill you to your bones and rivet you to your cassette player. Chris MacNeil, busy movie star and single mother, slowly realizes that her 12-year-old daughter, Regen, is behaving strangely, then out of the norm, then like the demon who is possessing her. Blatty not only reads his classic tale of horror, but becomes every uncomfortable, disturbing, graphic, verbally and emotionally shocking word of the book. His deep voice and flawless performance resonate with evil and the good it is trying to overcome, carrying the listener to the horrifying, inexorable conclusion. The movie only touches the tip of this iceberg of good and evil. The images evoked by text and dramatization will stay with you for a long time.
