By Barcham - 4 November 2013 7

Yes, THAT Linda Blair.

She’s coming to town as a guest of Monster Fest, a 12 hour horror movie festival at CIT’s Woden Campus that runs from from 3pm on Saturday the 30th of November right through to 3am the next day.

It also includes a special anniversary screening of the Exorcist at Greater Union, Manuka on the 23rd.

NOVEMBER 23 ?- THE EXORCIST
LINDA BLAIR IN CANBERRA

MONSTER FEST and WARNER BROS. present Linda Blair and
the 40th Anniversary screening of THE EXORCIST.

?It’s been called the scariest movie ever made and was the first horror film to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Both critically acclaimed and a huge international box-office success, it featured an extraordinary performance from 15 year old Linda Blair, playing the role of Reagn, a 12 year old girl possessed by the devil. Few people who’ve seen the film can forget the intense emaotional and physical performance of Blair, won won a Gloden Globe and was nominated for an Academy Award for the role.

Thanks to horror film festival Monster Fest, Linda Blair will be in Canberra for a special 40th Anniversary screening of The Exorcist on Saturday 23 November at Greater Union, Manuka at 8:30pm. Linda Blair will introduce the film and talk about its making and the influence it had on her career at an extended Q&A after the film.

If you can’t see the movie, or are just too chicken, you can see Linda at Impact Comics where she will be doing a signing from 2.30 before heading off to the movies at 5.30.

LINDA BLAIR!

Hopefully they screen the good version not the silly director’s cut.

are you kidding??? the bit where she is bent over backwards ‘crawling’ down the stairs like a giant spider was one of the best horror scenes ever!!

And that’s how we will all look if we cook sausages without first doing a sausage safety course.

I’m going to suggest that what happens in the film is what happens if we eat sausages that are cooked without doing a sausage safety course.

I wonder how many times she has seen the film.

I thought she was very cute by the time she hit early 20s, but othr life issues prevented her from getting much further with her career.

“It’s been called the scariest movie ever made…”

It’s also been called the most idiotic movie ever made. Personally I think that may be a little harsh, but I’d have to think very hard to think of one that beats it.
