Story of The Exorcist

The story of the series, simply put, is about a man and his daughter who live in an old house in New England. The girl’s mother had committed suicide by jumping out of their tenth-story window when she was pregnant with her second child. Her father takes it upon himself to care for her and finds the help he needs through religion. He starts experiencing some unusual occurrences in the house that leads him to believe evil forces are working on getting into his daughter through her body, entering her room at night while she sleeps. For many decades now, the name author William Peter Blatty has conjured up images of evil and demonic possession in a deep, low voice. And for good reason; he was the writer who in 1971 co-authored the novel, “The Exorcist,” which later became one of Hollywood’s most successful movies to date.
