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.
Continuity mistake: When Chris is taking a walk with the priest Damien, she throws her cigarette to the ground, but in the next shot it's back in her hand again.
Trivia: In the scene where Regan's mother is supernaturally blasted away from the bedside, she is being yanked by the crew by a length of rope. After dozens of takes director William Friedkin was still unhappy with the look of the shot and ordered the crew to haul her more fiercely. The scream in the shot that made the cut was of genuine pain and required no dubbing for effect.
Regan MacNeil: You're going to die up there.
Question: What is Chris McNeal's assistant listening to on the radio when Father Merrit arrives?
Question: Was "caption howdy" the demon? Or did Regen make him up, the way some kids do?
Question: What was the significance of the father being an absentee dad? Did that make Reagan more vulnerable to being possessed?
