Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The film was originally rated NC-17 "due to the film being too graphic and violent". The offending scenes were edited and the result was the R-rating for "strong violence and gore, disturbing images and rituals, and for language including some sexual dialogue".
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Father Gionetti gives Father Merrin a copy of the Rituale Romanum (Roman Ritual). (The administration of exorcism is in Title X of the Rituale Romanum.) The title of the book embossed on its leather cover is "Roman Ritual", in English. Later in the film, Father Merrin asks Joseph to help him by reading passages of the book, and we are shown a couple of printed pages, the text of which is also in English. The Rituale Romanum would have been printed in Latin in 1949, when the film is set, because vulgar translations of liturgical texts were not authorized until the promulgation of the Sacrosanctum Concilium (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy) by Pope Paul VI on 4 December 1963, as part of the Second Vatican Council.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): At the beginning of the film, Father Merrin is told that a church has been found in East Africa and that the church is from around 5 AD. He meant to say that it was from the "fifth century AD".
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Merrin meets with Jeffries for the first time, the amount of sweat on Merrin's shirt varies between shots.
