Prequel to The Exorcist. The film traces the story of Father Lankester Merrin (Stellan Skarsgård) back to his first encounter with the Devil in post-WWII Africa.
In its time The Exorcist was considered one of the scariest movies ever made. It's re-release in 2001 demonstrated that it still had the power to shock. Movie times have sure moved on since then, so let's hope the makers don't substitute pure effects for pure shock.
