* ChristianityIsCatholic: Obviously, as it is the only church to offer exorcism as a practice. This is TruthInTelevision. The Lutheran minister of the parents of the child in the real life case the movie is based on told the parents to get a Catholic priest because Lutherans had no exorcism tradition. It is somewhat strange though that Damien Karras is a Catholic despite being Greek because Greek people are overwhelming Eastern Orthodox (98%).

* StealthSequel: WordOfGod states that ''Film/TheNinthConfiguration'' is the true sequel to ''The Exorcist''. According to ThatOtherWiki, the astronaut in ''The Exorcist'' is Captain Cutshaw in ''The Ninth Configuration''. In the book series, several unused pieces of dialogue from ''The Exorcist'' were used in ''The Ninth Configuration'' instead.

** As [[http://www.filmsite.org/exor.html noted]] by Filmsite.org:
--->Chris grabs a bullhorn and tells the rebellious students in the crowd: "If you want to effect any change, you have to do it within the system," a long crane shot finds Father Karras walking away from the crowd and the filming - he turns back to watch for a moment, and then continues his departure in serious thought. [To accentuate one of the film's themes, the actor's lines are deliberately juxtaposed with the priest's departure, since he is experiencing an inner struggle of religious faith within his own system - the church.]
