The Exorcist was one of the most successful horror movies of all time, grossing almost half a billion dollars at the box office. Based on a real-life exorcism in 1949 in Maryland, USA, the movie is about a priest who claimed to have exorcised a demon from a thirteen- year-old boy whose family reported poltergeist activity. The ordeal lasted almost four months, with various priests reporting that the boy spoke in Latin, claimed to be a demon, and displayed 'superhuman' strength.
