Ellen Burstyn in The Exorcist, our pick for tonight
The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen - Turner Classic Movies - 10.55pm
Our pick for tonight sees a teenage girl (Linda Blair) become possessed by a mysterious entity, after which her mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks the help of two priests (Jason Miller and Max von Sydow).
Based on the novel by William Peter Blatty and directed by William Friedkin (The French Connection, Sorcerer), The Exorcist perfectly blends bone-chillingly creepy thrills with a powerful meditation on faith.
