Linda Blair – Born January 22, 1959

An icon of the horror genre, Linda Blair Exorcisms Original Bad Girl, will always be tied to The Exorcist from 1973. This movie set her in the limelight but I am not sure that it actually did her any favors.

Noteworthy

  • The Exorcist – This was the first and still, in my opinion, the best of the exorcism genre. There is something about the use of practical effects, the acting, and a very engaging story that make this movie work for me. Blair became an icon with the release of this movie. She also became more than a little pigeon-holed as far as Hollywood was concerned.
  • Exorcist II: The Heretic – Not a good sequel at all though I would still allow that Blair is the highlight of the movie.
  • Repossessed – Leslie Nielsen stars opposite Linda Blair in a send up to The original Exorcist movie from the 70s.

When I was 13 I asked my mother if it was possible for this to end – I’d had enough of it. And that was right about the time that we got a call for ‘The Exorcist’ interview.
