When I first saw this challenge open up I became so excited and I knew in that second what I wanted to do for it. Being on a budget of zero dollars I knew I would have to get really creative and use the resources I had available to me! One of the best most classic horror films ever (in my opinion).

William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist came out in 1973. I was born in 1978 so I don't know exactly when I first watched it but when I did, it implanted a deep love for the horror genre within me and it has been that way ever since. Whenever I think of this movie this is the photo that comes to my mind. I plan on doing a photo essay about making this photo so look out for it.

I hope my homage does it justice.

    My mother saw it when it premiered in London; she said that people ran out of the theater into the streets screaming their heads off.

    Your photo hits that chord- Bravo!
