Perhaps the most notorious big-budget horror film ever made, our new anthology of essays on The Exorcist includes four hundred pages of insightful criticism, including interviews with William Peter Blatty (on the making of The Exorcist), William Friedkin, Jason Miller, and Dick Smith. The essays cover the film, the sequels, and the two different prequels, with a new interview with Paul Schrader. Loaded with color and black and white stills,behind-the-scenes photographs, and an exhaustive bibliography, this is the ultimate guide to one of cinema's most enduring movies.

About the Author:

Danel Olson is an American professor of Gothic literature & film, and Shirley Jackson Award & World Fantasy Award-winning editor of a six volume original fiction print series, Exotic Gothic. His other edited works in print include 21st Century Gothic: Great Gothic Fiction Since 2000, as well as Stanley Kubrick's The Shining: Studies in the Horror Film. His forthcoming publication is Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth: Studies in the Horror Film featuring new pre-production art from the Director never published before.


If you like the idea of some outstanding horror film classics being woven into the Exorcist saga--from Don't Look Now and Night of the Living Dead to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Last House on the Left--and discovering more about the social, historical, political, economic contexts in which those films were made, Olson's book will be your ultimate guide.
