Father Damien Karras: 'Where is Regan' Regan MacNeil: 'In here. with us'. The terror begins unobtrusively. Noises in Regan's room, an odd smell, the displacement of furniture, an icy chill. Easy explanations are offered. Then frightening changes start in the eleven-year-old girl. Medical tests shed no light on her symptoms, but it is as if a different personality has invaded the child. Father Damien Karras, a Jesuit priest, is called in. Is it possible that a demonic force is present in the child? Exorcism is the only answer...

3.0 I set my expectations to high
I think because I watched the movie years ago that I just set my expectations for this book too high. The movie totally creeped me out and was scary and this book wasn't.

4.0 The Exorcist
Fun fact: I used to have "The power of Christ compels you!" as my ringtone for whenever my devoutly Catholic grandparents called me. I thought it was hilarious. For those who haven't seen the movie, The Exorcist is about a twelve year old girl, Regan McNeil, who begins to display signs of demonic ...
