Episode 9: Exorcist II: The Heretic

Slip on the electrodes and get ready to synchronize with another notorious Hollywood head-scratcher!

Alex Bledsoe, author of over 20 fantasy novels, joins the show for a look at the second-worst movie of all time, Exorcist II: The Heretic, aka E2TH! Linda Blair is back as Regan MacNeil, but this time she’s traded her pea soup for a pair of tap shoes and has to use her vaguely-defined spiritual powers to defend the world against a swarm of demons and her own evil, sexy self! It’s a film that could have only come from the mind of John “Zardoz” Boorman…and his “creative consultant”, Rospo Pallenberg!

Join us as we look at one of Hollywood’s first blockbuster misfires and, along the way, we discuss filling big shoes, why 0% looks better than 20%, the value of a reverse barometer, art thriving under restrictions, the Land of Dairy Queen, Teflon von Sydow, Third Man zithering, and pitch a team of New Age X-Men!

You don’t have to be as drunk as Richard Burton to enjoy this show, but it couldn’t hurt! Listen today!
