EP. 300.1 — The Exorcist

Amy & Paul make heads turn with 1973’s horror classic The Exorcist! They praise Ellen Burstyn’s quiet but strong take on a desperate celebrity mother trying to save her ‘sick’ daughter, coin the term “cinematic one night stand” for one-off iconic performances, and grimace over the grotesque special effects inspired by real-life medical procedures. Plus: Amy accidentally cursed her ex-boyfriend with a Santeria candle!
Next week Unspooled’s Scaretober series continues with The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari!
