In his latest, William Friedkin returns not only to his documentary roots but to the subject of one
of his most towering works, 1973’s The Exorcist. Friedkin, a legendary raconteur, leads a tour
that moves from the infamous Exorcist steps in Georgetown to Italy, where he meets with the
91-year-old Father Gabriele Amorth, official exorcist of the Diocese of Rome, and accompanies
Amorth on one of his harrowing house calls. A sprightly, at times gonzo-style, investigation into
the long history of demonic lore, and a one-of-a-kind insight into the persistence of medieval
belief in the supposedly modern world."
