Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Merrin and Karres enter Regans room to start the exorcism, Merrin opens a small black case and produces a crucifix which he kisses then puts on the bedside table. After the priests take a break from the exorcism, Merrin re-enters the room and takes the crucifix out of the case again.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): At the beginning of the exorcism, Regan's blanket is yellow. Towards the end, when Father Karras is checking her heart, the blanket is blue.
  • John Boorman had been offered the chance to direct, but declined because he felt the storyline was "cruel towards children". He did, however, accept the offer to direct the sequel, Exorcist II: The Heretic.
  • In the disturbing scene where Regan is masturbating with the crucifix, Eileen Dietz was used for the shot where Regan belts her mother across the face. William Friedkin felt they needed someone with more heft physically to perform the stunt, and the double was shot from the back. The crucifix scene was filmed with Dietz, according to an interview with her in the documentary "Starz Inside: Fantastic Flesh: The Art of Make-Up Effects".
