The Exorcist (CD)
First published in 1971, this horror became a literary phenomenon and inspired one of the most shocking films ever made. Robert Glenister and Ian McDiarmid star in a gripping BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of William Peter Blattyâ€™s classic horror novel.
This new, full-cast radio drama is just as chilling, suspenseful and shocking, while also retaining the depth and psychological complexity of Blatty's original work.Summoned to a case of apparent possession, Father Karras is at first sceptical, but later horrified. The victim is a 12-year-old girl named Regan who seems to be controlled by a Â terrible supernatural force that makes her swear, blaspheme, scream in agony and perform appalling acts.
Attempting to find a rational explanation for the girl's behaviour, Karras tries to talk to Regan, only to find himself locking horns with the demon inside her head.
Its many voices mock him, tormenting him with his weakness, doubts and buried guilt.
With his faith in God and humanity tested to the limit, Karras turns to the ultimate solution: exorcism... The film version of The Exorcist is widely considered to be one of the most terrifying movies ever made.
