RIP William Peter Blatty, author of “The exorcist”

(Before It's News)

Back in 1973, many people were talking about “The exorcist”, a very scary movie.   It was based on William Peter Blatty’s book:   

“The Exorcist,” the story of a 12-year-old girl possessed by the Devil, was published in 1971 and sold more than 13 million copies. 
The 1973 movie version, starring Linda Blair and directed by William Friedkin, was a runaway hit and earned Mr. Blatty, who wrote the screenplay, an Academy Award. (It was also the first horror movie nominated for the best-picture Oscar.)

Mr. Blatty died today.  He was 89.    

I did not see the movie or read the book.  Nevertheless, they were both very consequential.   

The movie can be downloaded HERE.
