EXCLUSIVE: Linda Blair Talks ‘The Exorcist’ 40th Anniversary Celebration

Reunite with Pazuzu and Regan as all five of ‘The Exorcist’ movies marathon on FEARnet this Sunday, February 18th.

The Exorcist, one of the scariest movies of all-time, is turning 40 years old. To celebrate, we caught up with the original film's heart and soul, Linda Blair, to chat about this terrifying anniversary that spans five films and a lot of green vomit and head twisting. This Sunday, in honor of The Exorcist's timeless take on possession, FEARnet is running "The Complete Exorcist" special, which includes back-to-back airings of The Exorcist, Exorcist II: The Heretic, The Exorcist III, Exorcist: The Beginning, and Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist. Be sure to check it out, but first, check in with our exclusive chat, which finds Regan looking back on Exorcist II: The Heretic, her history with the franchise, and what her dogs think of the movies (to learn more about Linda's WorldHeart Foundation, were you might discover a horror movie loving dog of your own, Click Here!)
