Who is THE EXORCIST in the original movie? Is it Father Karras or Father Merrin? I am having an argument with my girlfriend.
Ahh, the kind of hard-hitting questions your good friend Captain Howdy likes to answer! I sure hope you were arguing that FATHER MERRIN is The Exorcist, Mike “ because that is the correct answer. Father Merrin is, was and will forever be The Exorcist. Father Karras was simply the priest who met with Regan and helped the church approve an exorcism. Technically, yes, they both perform the exorcism at the end of the film “ but without a doubt the title, and the ˜hero’ character of the entire film The Exorcist is Father Merrin.
