The Exorcist is a 1971 novel
by William Peter Blatty
. The book details the demonic possession of twelve-year-old Regan MacNeil
, the daughter of a famous actress, and the Jesuit psychiatrist priest who attempts to exorcise the demon.
The novel was inspired by a 1949 case of demonic possession and exorcism that Blatty heard about while he was a student in the class of 1950 at Georgetown University. The novel is the basis of the film adaption, whose screenplay was also written by Blatty.
Since it had a successful run in theaters, there have since been four sequels released: Exorcist II: The Heretic, The Exorcist III, Exorcist: The Beginning, and Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist.
