William Peter Blatty, Autor und Drehbuchschreiber von The Exorcist, für dessen Script er 1974 den Oscar gewann, ist im Alter von 89 Jahren gestorben. Danke für die ganzen Erbsen, William!

Blatty was most famous for his 1971 novel, which told the story of a child possessed by a demon. The image of the demonic Regan became iconic among horror fans and the novel was a huge bestseller, remaining on the New York Times bestseller list for 57 straight weeks and at the No 1 spot for 17 of them. In 1973, Blatty won an Oscar for his screenplay of his own book and later wrote and directed a film sequel, 1990’s The Exorcist III.
