The Exorcist is a heavyweight among supernatural horror films decades later due to its disturbing visuals and compelling tale of a desperate mother and two priests efforts to rescue a young girl from the clutches of a demonic presence. Little Regan is a sweet child who steadily becomes afflicted by evil, causing her appearance and behavior to become disturbing and grotesque. When modern medicine and science fail to alleviate her condition, her disbelieving mother reluctantly allows for the intervention by two dedicated Catholic priests who then battle the terrible being that has the girl in its grip! Great acting and still-remarkable special effects make the classic film shocking, memorable and a must-see for Halloween, fans of scares and those who enjoy paranormal films.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning of the movie, the old priest is in Northern Iraq and you can see the shadow of a microphone on his hat.

Trivia: The vomit that Linda Blair spewed was actually split-pea soup. Specifically, the effects crew decided to use Anderson's split-pea soup because Campbell's split-pea soup wasn't green enough.

Question: Was "caption howdy" the demon? Or did Regen make him up, the way some kids do?

Answer: The implication is that Captain Howdy was the name the demon gave itself while communicating with Regen prior to its possession of her.

Answer: It was indeed Pazuzu, he wanted Regan to believe he was some friendly entity to gain her trust. Thus the Captain Howdy facade.
