"Would say that, um Satan always tempts off. That's one. The same thing is ordinary actually attempts. All of us that evil voice that voice in your ear that says to your a bomb. God doesn't care about you. There's no hope for you. That's not God's voice. That's Satan's voice in your ear. Now, there are times when Satan goes actually directly influence people and a an extraordinary weight, which you can call you their possession of repression. I think, for example, some of these, uh, individual lone wolf terrorists. I think some of them are possessed. I mean, to go into a school and shoot innocent Children and then to shoot yourself. It's a very demonic thing. You. Oh, go ahead list. So I as one as a monsignor, um I feel like I've witnessed that too, especially around the BLM energy. Um, sometimes we went to like the BLM plaza, whatever. It's actually Lafayette Park, But it is what it is, Um and I interacted with a woman who, quite frankly, they've actually demonized the idea of Jesus and they have made especially women. Become witches. All of a sudden, as if that is like the drug of choice these days, and I know it's spiritual because even in a place like Baltimore, like There's no other reason but for spiritual warfare, especially in a lot of these communities. Yeah, well, by the way, your earlier common I like that You're following your vocation to be in politics, and it's bringing you closer to your faith. I think all of us when we follow our vocations, uh, that the Lord is calling us to a grace for us, and we become earlier but as getting back to your earlier that comment Yeah. I mean, the number of people practicing witchcraft today is astounding. And people say Well, no, no, I'm a good witch. The problem with that is you're using magic magic does not come from the Lord. The Bible is very clear about condemning a magic. You may think you're Doing good, but you can't do good to evil and using magic. It does not come from the Lord Monsignor, Sadly, only have 30 seconds left. But, of course, the fact that you're a Exorcist in D C. And, of course, the William Peter Blatty novel, which is also based on real life exorcists in Washington. Is there something unique to D? C that that brings on demonic possession? Well, the demons are everywhere. But angels are too so we should be it. Relax that the Lord's in charge and D C. Well, obviously, I think this country is its target. Satan because we're hopefully a force for good and human rights and equality in this world, and I think that Satan wants to take us down as well as the church. Well, said, Sir. Monsignor Stephen Rossetti. Thank you so much for joining us, Father. The book is Diary of an American exorcist. And, Yeah, it's worth reading for sure. Thank you, sir. God bless you both. And thanks for having me it is 8 15 w mail, traffic.

"So if you don't didn't recognize that music we are talking about the exorcist One of my favorite movies. I don't know about you. John but i actually really really love this particular movie. And i'm not a horror fan movie and all but What do you. What's your feeling on this movie. Just in general kind of yeah. I mean i like it a lot i i saw it when i was a kid and You know i didn't fully understand it. Was you know everyone always told me that. It was the scariest movie of all time. And i were watching it and i was just freaked out by it But you know. I watched in a couple years ago and You know wanting added not only from of sean perspective and it's just a very well done shown You know 'cause to me. Horror is something Obviously this this we'll get to the sentinel more because under the entire plan here. And william peter blatty when he wrote. The novel was had baseless on something he had heard from a. I think i think like an actual jesuit priests but to meet the The horror genre general Works on two levels. You have the supernatural elements and then when you remove that you have to say like okay. What does this actually talking about. Sometimes you know something like this. It's based on real fun story but other times you can look at it and say okay. What is this really trying to convey so remember watching it. You know from the perspective of of that but also from the perspective of of faith you know. I go to church on serious catholic Try to be in in in the film struck me on that level. Also i I was like this is a really profound shown. So it's maybe me want to read novels while you have. You had the novel i have. No i have actually read the novel. There's not too much difference. I mean william. Peter blatty did his work and basically adapted his novel as it would be This obviously more expansion more Arm backstory to the the demand. And everything else so but yes so I think we should also say that. We are both Catholics i think john is actually a more devout catholic than i am. I concerned i call myself a recovering catholic in the stars that i lost my faith. Regain my faith so in Kinda like i saw it kinda when i was young. I think because. I'm only a year or two older than john. I think that I saw it when they released it with like the never before seen version and we'll get into the different versions as we go on but i think start them and my mom talked about when people initially people were fainting in the is they were running up and running out of the theater and vomiting and there was like a visceral reaction to this movie Not just from the catholic league's and catholic You know the diocese but also from lay people in from people who you know all kinds of different faiths and people who didn't have any face but it was such a visual Reaction yes let's let's get right into it the the thing john ra mentioned and it's absolutely true the exorcist. The film was based on exodus. The book which william peter blatty wrote the screenplay and wrote the novel.

"Welcome back to the Buck Sexton show Michael Palka in for Buck and we were talking about the Christmas star. So I pulled Billy Hallowell in here. He's one of the great faith writers in this country. Billy have to know. I know it's still kind of visible. But was this the star that guided the wise men to Jesus? Yeah, you know, so we can't be 100% sure, because there are a bunch of theories about what they saw, right? Some are saying it was a supernova. Others are saying it was this really interesting, essentially alignment of planets, which would have involved Saturn and Jupiter. Now what's interesting about what we're going to see in the skies is that this current one actually involved Saturn and tubers, so it's possible. But what's basically happening is that that Saturn and Jupiter are lining up in the sky. It looks like they're colliding. But there's still like 400 million miles away from each other. But the Wednesday line up, it's going to be the bright, amazing start. I actually saw it last night. This goes from the 16th through the 25th. It ends on Christmas. I just find it. I find it really fascinating that it's happening around in on Christmas during a year when we've had so much chaos and pain right in 2020, and it's almost like this really cool reminder of what the season is about. And of hope and end of all that. So can we be sure? It's the same thing they saw. No, but I think it points us right back to that which I think is pretty amazing. Well, we can't exactly be sure. But there is science involved in this. Astronomers have been doing the math on this. The The astronomers in in Rice University in Texas did the math. I'm pretty sure some of the ancient astronomers did the math and they know where and when these planetary alignments occur, and it's all around the same time, so There's every chance that this could have been what was called the star that guided the wise men. I have to interrupt you to say that this particular alignment. So Saturday, Jupiter will Bill Align every 20 years in the sky or so, but not like this. Not this right. This. This is the first time At this particular alignment has happened in 800 years. More than 100 years. It was 12 26. That was the last time that this alignment happened and I found it interesting. It's gonna happen again in 2080 and then not for another 400 years, So it's It's a notable moment. We know that something similar happened. You know again. There's research on this back around the year three, so basically around the time that Jesus was born. So it's there. It's so interesting to me that because my thing is like if we can have this moment of hope, something that points us back to Christmas, and it's happening on Christmas. I find that almost a little eerie, but in a positive way, and in an interesting way. Head. Then I'll take it because I think we need that this year. We're talking to Billy Hallowell. He's a friend of mine is have faith Writer. You confined him. What's the best place? Billy Faith Wire? Is that the best place to find you? So I've got pieces over a faith wire, but I actually write daily over it. Insider dot sheriff looks calm and I have a story about about this Christmas star over there, so I'd encourage people to check that out. Okay. Insider doubt pure flicks calm. I also have to bring up your book playing with fire that came out earlier. I'm fascinated with this book because it's a book that as I read it, my job kept dropping. You're talking about all of the The well known cases of exercises ums that we've talked about in the past, not just the one that inspired William Peter Blatty is book but other exorcisms and I have to go back now, a couple months after this book's been out, and it's done well. Are you still getting revelations about demons and possessions and exorcizes ums? I am And what's interesting is I've had people reach out to me and they're like, Oh, my goodness. I heard your interview somewhere or I picked up the book and this is what's happening in my house. When you're talking about spiritually warfare in possession and all that we tend to look at it. As entertainment. But there are a lot of people out there and yes, some people are having mental afflictions. But others are experiencing things that they cannot explain, and that that we can. We can actually explain when we look at Scripture. And so that was the whole motivation for writing. You're playing with fire, and I loved hearing from people on it because it kind of reinforces this idea, And we know that this is true because we see it in the box office numbers. It's a topic people want to talk about, and people are interested in it. But they don't always feel comfortable Having the conversation again. The book is playing with fire. His name is Billy Hallowell. My friend. Thank you for talking about the Christmas star. And thanks for spending some time with me Christmas and demons that we covered it. So there you go.

And so it was with the case, Robbie, you know that the exercise, you said The Exorcist was based upon Dedicated on a real life story. A lot of people don't know that about the Exorcist. But there was the truth behind that, and demonic possession is similar. That's where they got their data from William Peter Blatty, who often the book The Exorcist, Um, was a consultant on the movie. Real life cases of exorcism that he put together, including Robby. Any of those things do happen in Hollywood betrayal. They tend to be like happened more rapidly and concise because you have a good story. You need a beginning drama in the middle, and either everybody is lost or the situation is somehow resolved. You need a solid start story and ending and realize isn't always like that. Sometimes these situations go out for months or years. Uh, but the Exorcist remains one of my favorite movies. It's a great movie. Why is there so much evil in the world, Carl? This kind of evil because the world is filled with people, and I think demons proceeds from people. No. We don't know. Well, we're basically dealing with the great unknown. We know there are. I know there are beings that are non physical. I wouldn't even call them creatures that not physical.

"Million dollars according to Box Office Mojo the film sold 110.5 million tickets during its various releases, which is the 9th most in cinema history and depending on your classification of horror. It's by far the highest number for a horror film dead. The Sixth Sense ranks 74 with 57.5 million tickets sold. In fact, even in real dollars at nineteen seventy-three is value. The film was the highest R-rated horror film of all time until it surpassed it just three years ago. That's a 44-year record, which is pretty much unheard of in cinema while audiences obviously loved it. The same could be said for all critics for every glowing review. There was one equally scathing the whole gamut of emotions was rough from fear and Terror to hatred anger disappointment and condemnation. Rodger Ebert loved it in his four star review for the Chicago Sun-Times. He said if movies are among other things opportunities for escapism. Then The Exorcist is one of the most powerful ever made our objections out questions occur in an intellectual context after the movie has ended during the movie There Are No Reservations, but only experiences. We feel shock horror nauseam Kia and some small measure of dog and hope rarely the movies affect us. So deeply The Exorcist is one of the best movies of its type ever made. It not only transcends the genre of Terror horror and Supernatural but of transcend such serious ambitious efforts in the same direction as Roman polanski's Rosemary's Baby even in the extremes of friedkin's vision, there is still a feeling that this is after all synthetic escapism and not a confrontation with the real life. There is a fine line to be drawn here and the excesses finds it and say the millimeter on this side Pauline kael dead. Well, she didn't love it. She called it shallowness that asked to be taken seriously and labeled it an embarrassment. The film is a faithful adaptation of the bloody book and that's not a compliment wage movie. Maybe in the worst imaginable taste. That is an utterly. I'm feeling movie about miracles, but it's also the biggest recruiting poster. The Catholic church has had in years The Exorcist is too ugly Thelma & Steak left lightly a Critic can't fight it because it functions below the conscious level. How does one exercise the effects of the movie like this? There is no way the movie industry is such that men have no taste and no imagination can have an incalculable influence freedom for his part addressed in a 1974 interview. When asked off the words Kyle right in this review at a further article from August. He stated the tail had attempted to interview him three times at that stage of his career, but he refused on each occasion as he viewed the New Yorker at home. An elitist magazine that is trying to Foster an idea about the medium in which I work that is contrary to the facts about that Medium. He also stated that he had publicly opposed chaos view on awesome. Wells when she wrote that he did not write Citizen Kane and so there is a personal history that I have with he said people never attend a movie in such numbers as when they go to see a hit because they hate the the teacher there is only one reason a movie becomes a hit and it's not publicity. It's not hype. It's not advertising. The only thing that causes people to go to the movies and such numbers is word-of-mouth tail condition the audience out of hand for what they choose as opposed to what they don't choose and is contemptuous of the audience for choosing X instead of choosing why whichever way the reviews fell the fact of the matter was that the box has done a 10 Academy Award nominations tied with the sting again unheard of for a horror film it lost best picture and Best Director to the sting at all three nominated actors, Ellenberger. Linda Blair and Jason Miller Lost in their respective categories to the film did win best sound. However and William Peter blatty also took home the best adapted screenplay or it's just been a success of the Golden Globes winning for Best Picture drama Best Director best screenplay and Linda Blair for best supporting actress. It should be noted that the sting was almost shut out at those Awards garnering One nomination for best screenplay. In fact, the sting was the first film to win the best picture Oscar after winning. No Globes. Too numerous to list are the accolades that have been afforded The Exorcist in the Years following its release is top countless lists of the best or scariest horror movies ever made and in 2010 was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National film registry. So significant was the film that the remainder of the 1970s more than a number of imitators following in its wake films like The Omen in the Amityville Horror house, which cost established stars in lead roles in horror films, which was unusual for its time. The film spawned a bunch of sequels. All of lesser quality exercises to the heretic followed in nineteen seventy-seven and start Linda Blair debuting at number two and falling out of the top ten within four weeks. The exercise three was written and directed by William Peter blatty based on his novel Legion and was an in name only seem to dealing with a serial killer the studio had black tea adding an exorcism sequence to justify the title, which he opposed. Morgan Creek pictures, but commissioned a prequel in the early 2000s to be shot by Paul Schrader, but the finished product wasn't what they wanted. And so they started a game with Renny Harlin releasing Exorcist the beginning in 6004. It was critically maligned and lost money due to its fifty million dollar budget and so Schrader released his version Dominion prequel to The Exorcist the following year two slightly better reviews than most zero box office dollars Fox developed a television series that ran for two seasons a couple of years ago and was well-received but dwindling ratings Fosters cancellation. Luckily. The original film hasn't been a major but apparently that too is on the horizon and Luke just a little bit of trivia when the film was first aired on CBS television in the early nineteen-eighties off an example of how ideas of what's acceptable have changed. There's the line shove it up your ass U faget and when that was shown on television, it was changed to birth. Shut your face you faget what I had a problem with the shove.

"Your Halloween and beyond. So a new era of horror films began in the seventies with The Exorcist, which many My night No was based on a true story. William Peter Blatty when he wrote the book did know of an actual case of them Exorcism and the Washington, DC area. It was a boy rather than a girl who was affected and no exorcism still is a Ah, right in the in the Catholic Church that can be called on. Um, the church was not so happy with this kind of publicity because they don't really Invoke exercises a very open and they gave the film a condemned rating. It was nominated for an Oscar on top of it. I mean, we're really one of the first four horror films ever. To be nominated because that genre of movies really doesn't get the attention it deserves. At least not until recent years. It's funny because horror and science fiction used to be in the periphery, The B movies, the see movies and, you know the worst movies, Um But with the growth of digital technology, especially and special effects, biggest blockbusters these days tend to contain some element. Of our fantasy horror science fiction. Ah, creatures and look at look at the shape of water a few years ago. Yeah, right. It. Ah, not only won an Oscar, I mean, swept the nominations. And deserve many more than it. God, and that was really something unprecedented. This is a film that's a, um Unapologetic homage to creature from the Black Lagoon, Um, which in the fifties never would have attracted the attention of the Academy, The Halloween movie franchise. I mean, that's a big one that really kicked off another. A new era of this in 1978 originally intended to call the movie The baby sitter murders is John Carpenter, the director. But they said, you know, let's do this around a holiday. Let's change the name so that we can maybe do more of these. And they wrote the script in 10 days and and then it became, you know, one of the biggest franchises in movie history. Yeah, And it also created Halloween tie ins in the movie industry. Strangely enough, going back to the early days, you know, in the thirties and forties, there was never a Halloween was never invoked. In marketing campaigns for these along the Great Monster movies, and it was a post war phenomenon that and it was really the seventies before the release date. Halloween became important. And soon after the theme parks the studio theme hearts were having Ah horror nights all through the month of October. This is still with us, old or not this year. Unfortunately, it's People are doing things like watching Turner Marathons as reading my book, Virtual Road map, but that's what it's turned out to be its a great guy, and I will tell you it's just the highlights that are in the book. The Behind the scenes stories, just some general views iconic images. Talking about Sequels, remakes. I mean, it's you really captured really the best of the best that that people could really enjoy over the next few weeks. I hope so. It's at least a representative sampling. You know, it's not a definitive encyclopedia, but I've already been receiving a lot of good feedback and fan mail and people asking what's going to be in the next book. And, um Unlike the universal documentaries, so that might actually happen. Yeah, Yeah, If you want out by an enough copies this Tamara was to mourn, but I had a great time writing and made love to do it again. We'll There's a couple more movies. I wantto feature scream. Almost felt like the return of you know, people, you know, you get tired of the Friday the 13th and the Halloween. You want something fresh. The nightmares on Elm Street and all those Sequels, and it just felt good that there was something contemporary with some younger stars that were more familiar. It wasn't just another sequel to an old franchise. Yeah, And it's also a It's kind of a medical. It's Ah, you're supposed to know all about the genre, and the genre is invoked in many ironic and clever ways throughout it, So it truly is a It's a horror movie for horror movie fans. And, uh, became a franchise of its own. Young Frankenstein is one that you call outs. You do talk a little bit about The comedy aspect of this because, you know, we obviously talked about Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and how much comedy and horror do kind of go together, especially in the emotions of being so scared. You're almost laughing when you're walking. Out of a film out of relief that it's over, But young Frankenstein is in a class all by itself. It was. It's like like Abbott, because no limit Frankenstein. It's on many people's all time favorite lists, and I think it's because it is such a loving homage. It's hysterically funny, but the detail with which Brooks and his crew recreated the look and feel of those old Frankenstein movies. It's just extraordinary. They actually got some of the original laboratory equipment from the 1931 Carlos. It was and were able to make it work. You know, one last time on the screen and it I think it's the affection with which the films are held by Brooke that really makes it work. It's easy to To, you know, be snarky and make fun of horror movies. Uh, but he did it in an absolutely perfect way. Well, nowhere near the same level was Beetlejuice, and it has its own cult following so many years later, But that was another one that it was comedy and horror at its best in some of the horses, some of the things that were happening there. We're pretty. They were wildly disgusting. Oh, yeah, around the same time And actually some of the effects in Beetlejuice, Um A car kind of funny Send ups on the kind of explicit gore that you Ah would see in other films the Now that period of time. You know, the, uh, the motion picture code had gone. By the way side, this book is massive and sowing death. What if you had a call out one that you said?

"Your Halloween and beyond. So a new era of horror films began in the seventies with The Exorcist, which many My night No was based on a true story. William Peter Blatty when he wrote a book didn't know of the Natural case of an exorcism and the Washington, DC area. It was a boy rather than a girl who was affected and no exorcism still is a Ah, right in the in the Catholic Church that can be called upon. Um, the church was not so happy with this kind of publicity because they don't really Invoke exercises a very open and they gave the film a condemned rating. It was nominated for an Oscar on top of it. I mean, we're really one of the first four horror films ever. To be nominated because that genre of movies really doesn't get the attention it deserves. At least not until recent years. It's funny, because, uh, horror and science fiction used to be in the periphery, The B movies, the see movies and, you know, divorced movies. Um But with the growth of digital technology, especially on special effects, biggest blockbusters these days can to contain some element. Of our fantasy horror science fiction, uh, creatures and look at look at the shape of water a few years ago, huh? Yeah, right. It. Ah, not only won an Oscar, I mean, swept the nominations. And deserve many more than it. God, and that was really something unprecedented. This is a film that's a, um Unapologetic homage to creature from the Black Lagoon, Um, which in the fifties never would have attracted the attention of the academy, The Halloween movie franchise. I mean, that's a big one that really kicked off another. A new era of this in 1978 originally intended to call the movie The baby sitter murders is John Carpenter, the director. But they said, you know, let's do this around a holiday. Let's change the name. So that we can maybe do more of these, And they wrote the script in 10 days and and then it became, you know, one of the biggest franchises and in movie history. Yeah, And it also created Halloween tie ins in the movie industry. Strangely enough, going back to the early days, you know, in the thirties and forties, there was never a Halloween was never invoked. In marketing campaigns for these along the Great Monster movies, and it was a post war phenomenon, but and it was really the seventies before the release date. Halloween became important. And soon after the theme parks the studio theme parks were having Ah horror nights all through the month of October. This is still with us solo. Not this year. Unfortunately, it's People are doing things like watching Turner Marathons as writing my book, her tool roadmap, but that's what it's turned out to be its a great guy, and I will tell you it's just the highlights that are in the book. The Behind the scenes stories, just some general views iconic images. Talking about Sequels, remakes. I mean, it's you really captured really the best of the best that that people could really enjoy over the next few weeks. I hope so. It's at least a representative sampling. You know, it's not a definitive encyclopedia, but I've already been receiving a lot of good feedback and fan mail and people asking, um, what's going to be in the next book? And, um Unlike the universal documentary, so that might actually happen. Yeah, Yeah, if you want out by an enough copies this Tamara was too hard, but I had a great time writing and metal up to do it again. We'll There's a couple more movies. I wantto feature scream. Almost felt like the return of you know, people, you know, get tired of the Friday the 13th and the Halloween. Do you want something fresh? The nightmares on Elm Street. And although Sequels and it just felt good that there was something contemporary with some younger stars that were more familiar. It wasn't just another sequel to an old franchise. Yeah, And it's also a It's kind of a medical. It's Ah, you're supposed to know all about the genre, and the genre is invoked in many ironic and clever ways, Um throughout it, so it truly is a It's a horror movie for horror movie fans. And became a franchise of its own. Young Frankenstein is one that you call outs. You do talk a little bit about The comedy aspect of this because, you know, we obviously talked about Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and how much comedy and horror do kind of go together, especially in the emotions of being so scared. You're almost laughing when you're walking out of a film out of relief that it's over. That young Frankenstein is in a class all by itself. It was. It's like like Abbott because Element Frankenstein. It's on many people's all time favorite lists, and I think it's because it is such a loving homage. It's hysterically funny, but the detail with which Brooks and his crew recreated the look and feel. Of those old Frankenstein movies is just extraordinary. They actually got some of the original laboratory equipment from the 1931 Carla film that was and were able to make it work. You know, one last time on the screen and it I think it's the affection with which the films are held by really makes it work. It's easy to To, you know, be snarky and make fun of horror movies. Ah, but he did it in an absolutely perfect way. Well, nowhere near the same level was Beetlejuice, and it has its own cult following so many years later, But that was another one that it was comedy and horror at its best in some of the horse, so some of the things that were happening there Pretty. They were wildly disgusting. Oh, yeah, around the same time And actually some of the effects in Beetlejuice, Um Are kind of funny. Send ups on the kind of explicit gore that you Ah would see in other films the Now that period of time. You know, the the Motion picture code had gone. By the way, so hide this book is massive, and so in depth. What if you had a call out one that you said? Yeah, really, That's that's my personal favorite. That's at the top would be David. Oh, everybody's doing this that I get asked this question Sickle times a day at least this month. It. I have to say that. You know, the Lugosi Dracula is my personal favorite, even though it is not the greatest, uh, film from an artistic standpoint. But it was ground breaking. It made everything else happened in talking pictures because it was the first time Hollywood took a chance on a completely supernatural premise. Had the studios were all interested in Dracula because you know it was successful as a book and a stage play. But in the movies if there was anything scary, especially in the silent era or hideous character, it was always explained away as Having a rational explanation, you know, usually kind of criminal enterprise, a plot to steal and inheritance, something like that. And here for the first time. This was the real deal. Absolutely. This is a 500 year old blood sucking demon from hell, and they held their breath. Doing it because, um, they were nervous. All the studios or nervous and universal bought the rights to prevent MGM, a rival studio from getting them and then had to make it and they didn't have Lan Cheney, who they wanted. To Ah, anchor the film in here who's a very bankable star. He died of cancer justice the film's planning was getting underway. Had the load. Behold that the worst year of the Great Depression. Dracula became this like a lightning rod for all of the anxieties, the riel here and terror that was in the air..

"But I think that William Peter Blatty kind of had a blank check after exorcist and although it is this the first movie that he directed I don't think it is it he direct Pink Panther movie. We already talked about this, but I, don't think he did hear direct. Yes. Three directors credits and this just under nine configuration exorcists three, and then the legion, which is the so-called director's cut of exorcists three. Yes. There's a reason. There's confusion because I think a lot of their like plotlines and stuff you know spread throughout the original story and part three and obviously they didn't hate him so much. If they let him come back and direct exorcists three. Phil, exhausted about looking that up but that was made in nineteen ninety I. Mean I guess that script probably existed at some point and just floated around until but then William Peter Blatty directed that two. Or three correct I love exorcist three simply for all of that again, like you know Catholic imagery and iconography, but then all those scenes of just. An viant noise man, it's slowly ramping up. And they're showing like a confessional am. Roses and blood, and anyway I loved exorcist three as well. I I was working at the drive in I'll man we had at the drive in and nobody came to see it's boring and we had to pull in a second movie to do a double feature to try to get more traffic in and still obviously it was money to with. Tom. Hanks. I watched it all the time because I was. A concession stand or you know or I was running the booth and let the owner go homes just hanging out sitting in their lawn chairs waiting for the movie to end side seen it plenty of times I mean I could look it up very easily but I am curious how much money at made what would the prophet of it was because? I didn't see it until you know video and it's fucking wild dude and there's a lot of things that you obviously would have needed to watch the exorcist of figure I mean I'd seen the X. I read the exorcist and was still kind of confused about You know why Jason Miller was that's I almost have Scott Wilson's monologue from that scene. Memorized because it's so weird and Clunky, and he's doing it on purpose..

"TV show you bring it up often that maybe I it's hilarious. Anyway Martin Shane I can't remember what he's talking to me. It's basically taking a confession you know and they didn't have anything. So they just grab one of those like high back chairs. You know that are in the schedule that have that kind of like wooden bamboo like You know get you had her. I. Got You. Yeah. They just they just set a chair in between a minute. Looks like a confessional. That's kind of what made me think? Okay. I don't know if that's up to standard, but it'll do in a pinch. So now we get kind of Scott Wilson's. Gist. Confession of what actually happened. Why is his monologue on why he flipped out chickened out? Why he was a what do they call him space man chicken. Exactly. So Scott Wilson's thing basically. Whole monologue follows that he didn't want to die alone and he felt that up in space he would be ultimately alone and if there was not a god, he would truly truly be alone. That's the whole thing and at one point he said something to Stacy Keach that if you were to die before me leave me a sign that there is a God yes and he agrees I mean I think that's just a running thing in all of William. Peter. Blatty stories is that you know the slick kind of existential terror and And I'll try to look into a little bit more about the story behind how. William Peter Blatty considers this the sequel to the true sequel to the exorcist. Yes. That saying that you're talking about he has cried probably three times in the smoking and I just think it's because he is so so believe I face just going full method you know yeah and he'd he deserved that Golden Globe he deserved more than that. This is. For sure terrific performance. I. Don't understand what I mean. I Guess I do understand William Peter. Blatty staying with like space and like. Discovering that we are in a alone that is terrifying. If you were brought up thinking that mainland, I don't know I'm just speculating because I don't identify with any of that. But all existential terror I do identify that. Yep. He's really really sounded like, are you there God? It's me. This is strange and I read some of this just to figure out what exactly happened there I guess there may have been. Some editing differences on this cut of the film and because Stacy Keach is just sitting in the chair was blanking the guys blanket looks like he's still has the blood of dead bikers. Scoured anything, Yeah. Beer in his hair, he actually kind of reiterates the. Will. Show you that God exists. His made that his name must like cure cut shaw. He's kind of taking himself to be a martyr to cure not just cut shaw but all the men by killing himself I on now but he's already maybe stabbed himself with a knife. Yeah. Right and I guess there was a cut of the film that the producers put together that. Dated that he was stabbed by one of the biker one of the you're right right. But then but no, the story was that he commit suicide and I mean I guess I there's no seen of him like I mean you assume that he remembers all of these things that he's been trying to suppress, and now he just can't deal with the fact that he's like. Brutally killed..

"Layer, tease Pekinese. Get me agree on a chow. That's William Peter Blatty in the background checking that mop dog with a stethoscope yeah. Yeah. I think he's dead. He suffocating the dog doesn't do much but every time somebody walks by you here kind of growl or and. Yeah. That scene, a cad I understand, the castle that they're filming in looks. So Cool Jason Miller is just walking around in scrubs kind of barefoot, and there's just all the arches and shit behind him, and it almost looks like Hammer movie or something you know or every puppet master movie or of course, every up at master moving I assume that's just Charles Vans House and they're just like filming everything everything. Now Scott Wilson is full on Willy Wonka Yep, he was in the tree of the hat bucket a paint. Made no sense. I want you to drop like an overripe mango. I. Don't know what that means. Robert. Loggia is just basically screaming staging. Yeah. Because he's in the air force and he wants his flying belt. He yeah, he should be restrained get. You. Know what I mean like dense. It's amazing that he's walking around. And Still William Peter Blatty is walking around and he's touching different people and looking at his watch she's like checking pulses. I don't like that either. I think earlier I saw him grab onto one of the statues wrists as if he saying. Well I. Mean You know and it is interesting that this is all male cast. You know there's no checks anywhere and we're glad to say there is no nudity. Yes. Unless you count Robert Loggia when he was in that hospital Johnny. Thank God. But seriously, he is in his fifties when he's in his twenties. I Love William Peter Blatty you see what you mean like. Not Doing anything Dr Lee at all, he's just wandering around. And checking things man I tried to look this you mean what the ninth configuration actually means like it is a thing. Is it yes and it's really complicated and everything that I read about it was like you know what? I don't even have the energy to you know as just stave theory about I. Guess How life began you know okay. Agassi nine proteins that had to come together in order to create life on Earth Teens of the ninth configuration. I mean I guess they were configured somehow this is a very like cube ricky and seen. Yes you know. I think they stole a lot of that from two thousand. It was actually in the trailer I. Mean That's probably the most iconic part of the movie. I guess. Was It on the cover of the VHS? Yeah..

"But the I would say, the first half of this is easily a comedy and so quick witted. Yeah. You really need to dissect the dialogue because he really like. You know of Tarantino to where everything is just kind of dripping with meaning. You know like everything they're saying is just kind of like A. I don't. Trailed off there you know I mean we need to actually kind of get into the if we could get past the first seen. Some of this other stuff would make more sense I mean that's what William Peter Blatty does as just the religious iconography and stuff the ninth configuration reads. A former marine arrives at a mental asylum housed in a remote castle to run it. That's horrible. Sentenced is there he attempts to rehabilitate the patients by letting them act out their craziest fantasies and desires. Okay. I must stop you right there. That's horrible. Is that like the back of the that's what it says imdb under description of the movie how interesting 'cause I just can't That's the very basic. Yes. Let's tell our audience right now to they can watch this on Amazon prime and it should be available on many platforms rather cheap and Amazon. Amazon prime is probably the easiest Yep I'm looking at it right now and I read there were several different versions of this movie. That that's in the Trivia here for on imdb states that anywhere from ninety nine minutes two, hundred, eighteen minutes I think that's one we're watching now as the. Hundred eighteen minutes so Yeah. You're right. William Peter Blatty. Said, he considers this movie to be the true sequel to the exorcist. If you really look that up I don't know we're going to be long lot about the exorcist and exercise to. During this movie that. I love it when we. Say. We're going to do one movie and then just basically review one that's adjacent to so fairest taking the day off. Yes. Exactly. His Dad in that movie. In great to. Oh anyway. Just GonNa have it playing in the background? When they do the floats when he's not singing. Right. Okay I'm good. I'll watch that later. Okay. Okay. Let's go ahead and get into this very open scene of the ninth configuration. Yes. Which explains everything and leaves you with no questions adult. which here we see the castle. God. Now, this is already confusing. Because, why are they in a? It is quick to explain that where are they? First of all, it was supposed to be in northern New England area believe, which is really not where they are. Right that explanation as to why they're in like medieval looking castle. Is. That it is a set right? Like a movie set. It was filmed filming locations, Vienna and Budapest and castle else in. Germany. L. T. Z. I thought that they explained it in the movie that because the entire thing is about mental health. PTSD. Done and. Why would you make here? In patients come to this. Stupor repeat location, and then have them spill their guts. Something explains it, and I couldn't tell you why well they explain I, believe that there was they were allowed to be in this thing for free in this castle for free. Yes. That supposedly somebody had this and it was it was like one sentence in there that somebody had this moved over brick by brick and rebuilt right?.

"That was somebody who wrote that. If you think view and I added your child is ready to see this. Shocking film keeping minded in some audiences in the seventies. They passed out out because it seeing what Dick Smith he was. The makeup guy did with the character. I mean we've got. Hit her head swivels she throws up some green goo on on the priests and she shakes the bit. I made it is. It's pretty compelling compelling and it's dealing with evil you know it's present but how do you control what. How do you overcome? It is faith strong. You know there's is all these overtones but it is chilling film. And it's chilling book directed by Wim Freakin. The Same Guy who later uh earlier had won the Academy Award with his Academy Award Film French connection. But William Peter Blatty wrote it and he he wrote the book and he wrote the screenplay and it's a very very good film the second one which parallels a similar theme may just a year later later or actually I should say three years later. That came out in seventy three. This is the omen starring. Lee Ramic and Gregory Peck and a young. David Warner may pose people. If that doesn't ring a Bell David Warner played the guy the inspector the bodyguard yard on the titanic. WHO's trying to help get DiCaprio away from Kate winslet for his boss her fiance but this deals with an American diplomat and this was written by? What's The I forget? The the author's name here let me just. I think it's Turner directed by Richard Donner. Who is a terrific director of the all the music? And it's pretty over heavy overtone music. By Jerry Goldsmith David Seltzer wrote the book and he wrote the screenplay a play and as I said he didn't write the to sequel films. That came after this. Because it's a trilogy. The Omen One omen to William Holdings in the second one but this deals with American can diplomat Robert his character Gregory Peck. They adopt this young man Damian when his wife Katherine delivers a Stillborn Child. And after Damian's I nanny hangs herself and Father Brandon warned. There's a priest that warns him that this Damian Guy I might not be this child may be somewhat evil he he will try to kill their unborn shock because she is pregnant again. Shortly thereafter that appraise dies she miscarried demon pushes her off a balcony blah blah blah. All these bad things that happened in Gregory Peck has to investigate his background and of comes to realize that his son may be the Anti Christ. And if you remember anybody out there remembers their Bible Abo- in revelations the beast is marked by you'll know him by his number and one of the things as a chilling scene when he discovers that the mark six six six is in his hair in on his skull under his hairline. Oh take I tell you you watch this in the daytime and it's still scary. Don't watch it and I don't watch alone Eddie because you will have nightmares but read. If you WANNA winter you went terrific books. Read them either one of these and I tell you. Keep the lights on to keep the lights on. But they're good films. They still hold up. I watched part of the A yeoman not too long ago it was on TV. I have take a look like we talk a good scene. I gotTa Watch this one but Lee Remmy who I love. She died far too young. She was in several several movies. I really liked. And she's very good in this and again what carries both these films is the acting good characters but to get good actors in the character roles. So there you you go the omen ninety seventy six and the exorcist nineteen seventy-three those are my scary movies. And they're they're faves of mine. The Omen did pretty good at the box. Office budget was two point eight million. That's pretty cheap. And it grossed sixty point nine million sales pretty good and the exorcist said. I don't win. Those figures were were touted that I caught one hundred ten million dollars and nineteen seventy-three. That's a big bunch of money. I don't know if they again when I see these figures I never know if that's that's what it was then or they've already already calculated in today's dollars. That's what they never quite make that clear. If that's one hundred ten million nineteen seventy-three that's a blockbuster and everybody was going to see it and word of mouth because so many people would read the book is it worth going. Should go see it. Is it changing. I don't want to be spoiled. Go see it recently on a show show. You're talking about a movie. It was an old old movie and then we had a statistic that if that movie that amount of money today the movie was mainly six hundred and some million dollars. Yeah it was quite a bit. Yeah I forget what it was but yeah so when you put in today's because because again going back my Disney. When I went to Disney films it was thirty five cents and then it was up to a dollar or dollar twenty five? I don't know what it costs us in one thousand nine hundred seventy three to see this and this would be they might have pumped up the you know. This is a big film so they had another fifty cents a ticket or something. But you're probably under two dollars. Buck seventy five. I'd almost bet at the at all. Probably so if they took in one hundred and ten million one hundred seventy five dollars a piece you know how many people we're going to the film and that's what mad you know as our friend. Samuel Jesse Jackson has a piece putting. I'm in the seats at six. And seven and ten dollars a pop pending on where they are to like New York little heavier than some other places. Yours paid big money. That's why they pay him the the big bucks I wonder if he gets percentage the popular thing nowadays. You take you take less money like Robert Downey Junior. He took it got a lot of money up front and then he got so much on. The I mean the didn't you just did. Recently you talk about Sandra Bullock. Didn't she with gravity. I thought I think if I mind is working she took she took a percentage or something and she made a bundle. Yeah I don't suit was gravity. It was something something that yeah I remember. Oh blindside I think was blindsided. Blindside took a very small paycheck but she we got a percentage and the movie did a few hundred million dollars. Search got a nice. ps do she was terrific in that she was just great grading it. Well that's all I got it. What's the clock on the wall? Well Johnny looks like it. Is that time again.

"Even became friends with the director William Friedkin and the screen writer William Peter Blatty mark was too young to watch the movie when it was first released he spent six years obsessing about it before finally seeing it at the cinema. so I have to ask what told is that take on you as a kid and also how did your parents react to watching you obsess in this way I mean did they say you can't see this I mean I believe you grew up Anglican if I'm not mistaken I will serve as our group is a method this method is I'm I'm I'm Anglican now because it is while saving us a which is Anglican is a joke about the church of England which is you don't lose your faith you just come in where you left it on. Molly Molly my parents knew the only with that cinema was the thing that I was interested in but they also knew the art was really really interested in in horror and. in the horror thing began I was sort of like come downstairs that you know at night and watch like old hammer re runs on all black and white television with the volume turned down so that my mom and dad couldn't hear. and very they went down in anyway so I think what they thought was if you're interested in anything that's a good thing and I've always said this you know people it's a great color vilification of horror movies all that bad for kids really do terrible things if you are slightly lonely child from horror movies they do speak to you and I have I've met so many people over the years I spent a lot of time working in the field of horror films who have that same thing that only the work for you or they don't and if they don't you call explain it it's like if somebody says what do you think of opera we will to me upper is it's I can appreciate it but it I don't get the thing yeah doesn't send it to sign with horror movies the differences no one tells you that if you listen to operate you gonna turn into a serial killer you know so if you were a bit of an outsider horror movies will your friends you know yeah I love the way and I have to say I am such a huge fan of your writing so I will be quoting you back to yourself for blood I hope you're comfortable with it Yahoo dot is my wife once said I love fish for compliments are truthful. I love that well I am I've been I confess a person who's never really given how are they to do and reading you write about it there's this wonderful way that you say people talk and this Lee about the damaging effects of horror movies but two little was heard about the life affirming power being scared out of your mind and in those very rare cases out of your body you ask me if I think there is more to this world at the grim realities of aging disease and death of morning in Los and I will refer you to that first viewing of the exorcist during which my imagination took flight my soul did somersaults in the physical world melted away into nothingness around me I don't think that there's a spiritual element to human life I know it because I have experienced it first hand and I have her movies to thank for that blessing. I love that tell me a little more about that experience what you're talking about that a live in this that presence that you had being taken away by the exorcist. not experience you know years later I would talk to to bill Blass he wrote The Exorcist and in the end bill had some sort of conflicts about what the how the film was received what the film meant to people he was very concerned that because certain key sequence is being taken out of it the message of it wasn't clear in the message from his point of view was very clear it is it will all be alright in the end gold is in his heaven there are angels because they're all day you know if there are demons in there and then he was very very clear about didn't bill was a very religious man and that was what the story was about for him but he said we took in quite candidly at one point and he said the thing is. when you watch that film you are a long life you know view all having an experience and whether that experience is good or bad you are alive and you are aware of it and what it means is that there is there is a fing horror movies can do and to some extent this goes into in a roller coasters lots of stuff it makes you alive by confronting you with the spectacle of something else but it's more than just your your experiencing something dangerous in a safe environment it is in the genuine sense of the word transcendent now from my point if you. that kind of almost out of body experience that I had watching The Exorcist was wholly positive wholly positive because the walls a form of transcendence and there are moments when cinema does that to you and it doesn't matter whether it's a horror movie or whether it's a love story or whether it's a thrill or science fiction it's something that makes you think there is more to this world than this Chad I'm sitting in in this folder Tory and I'm sitting in years later I went to Georgetown you know and I walked up those steps I walked to the front of where the house you should be of seats different in real life. again it was that incredible feeling of walking into something that I've already been into a knot deja vu that is an uncanny experience an uncanny experiences tell you that there's more to life than just this..
