Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): Right in the beginning theres a establishing shot subtitled Cairo. In the background you can see the pyramids of Gizeh looming over the city. These pyramids are only about 80 meters high and more than 15 kilometers from Cairo. There's no way to see them anywhere from Cairo at all.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): When Merrin looks at Bession's drawing as he is walking into the church, he has it the right way up (with the cross inverted). A few moments later he looks at the hanging cross and realizes he's made a mistake in interpreting the drawing. He looks at the drawing again (now upside down, with the cross the right way up) and turns it around, giving him his epiphany about the hidden passage.
  • Morgan Creek Productions fired Paul Schrader after he had submitted a completed movie, saying that he had given them "footage without any of the bloody violence the backers had wanted". He had already made it clear in interviews that he was making more of a psychological drama than an all-out gore-fest. He was fired and Renny Harlin was hired to re-shoot the movie. Almost 90% of the movie was re-shot and at least two characters have been dropped from Paul Schrader's version of the movie. Following the lackluster reception to Harlin's version, though, Schrader's version was finally released as Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist (2005).
  • Peter Franzén was offered the role of Matti Ristinen.
