The Exorcist is one of the classic movies to watch at Halloween and is self-described as being “the greatest supernatural thriller of all-time”. It was originally released in 1973 and starred Ellen Burstyn, Linda Blair, Jason Miller, and Max von Sydow. The movie was based upon an apparently true exorcism of a teenage boy from Maryland in 1943 and the book to follow in 1971. If you are a fan of the supernatural film, carving one of its characters into your pumpkin this Halloween is a fun idea.
Of course the best character from The Exorcist to consider carving is Regan MacNeil, the young girl in the movie who becomes possessed by an evil entity. The character Regan was played by actress Linda Blair.
