Even the trailer was too scary…

Discovered on YoutTube, watch the once incredibly rare original 1973 theatrical trailer for William Friedkin’s The Exorcist that film executives banned due to the concern that the content within was too disturbing for audiences.

It’s actually an insanely intense trailer that really grabs you with music reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, and would eventually inspire the score for Insidious.

Warning: people with epilepsy should probably avoid as you’re about to be blasted with flashes of terror!
