Exorcist-Director filmed real Exorcism at Vatican


William Friedkin, Regisseur des Exorzisten, erzählt satanische Geschichten in Cannes: 'The Exorcist' maker says Vatican let him film real rite.

So'n Exorzismus soll laut Exorzismus-Filmer tatsächlich recht viel mit dem Exorzisten-Film gemeinsam haben und ich gehe jetzt mal nicht davon aus, dass er damit fliegende Betten, Spiderwalks, Erbsenpürree oder rotierende Köpfe meint, sondern eher Weihwasser und repetitive Fantasy-Beschwörungen. Mal ganz davon abgesehen, dass beide natürlich fiktive Fantasy-Klopper sind. Der Vatikan dementiert, selbstverständlich.

The 80-year-old American filmmaker told a masterclass at the Cannes film festival late on Thursday that he was invited by the chief exorcist in Rome to record the event. "I was invited by the Vatican exorcist to shoot and video an actual exorcism which... few people have ever seen and which nobody has ever photographed," he said. Friedkin said he was taken aback at how close the ceremony was to the exorcism depicted in his 1973 film. "I was pretty astonished by that. I don't think I will ever be the same having seen this astonishing thing.

"I am not talking about some cult, I am talking about an exorcism by the Catholic Church in Rome," he added. But the Vatican denied "making any such invitation. The Vatican (itself) does not have an exorcist," a spokesman told AFP.
