Theatrical vs “The Version You’ve Never Seen.”
Devils, demons, pazuzu, deception. How do people get possessed? Different theories.
Supernatural detective work. Priest losing his faith.
The Catholics. The Rite of Exorcism. Bureaucracy. Serious vs loosey-goosey exorcisms.
Simple vs Easy Explanations
Occam’s razor. Science.
Tradition. Latin as the language of ancient evil. Ecclesiastical latin.
Order of Operations
Medicine -> fringe medicine -> call a priest!
The ways this movie is timelessly excellent and scary. Parenting.
