The Exorcist

The Exorcist, which remains one of the most powerful, galvanizing, controversial, unsettling, and downright chilling films of all time, celebrates its 40th anniversary today.

The Exorcist Happy Metal

Remember that adorable Exorcist Crochet Amigurumi Playset, complete with projectile-vomiting Regan MacNeil? Well, if you dug that, here’s something else along those lines: The Exorcist Happy Meal.

Pinterest user Newt Clements mocked up a series of horror-themed Happy Meals – the popular kid’s meal package from McDonald’s fast food eatery. The mock-ups come complete with the expected toy for each property: The Exorcist has the demon-possessed Regan bound to the bed; The Shining has an axe-wielding Jack Torrance; Godzilla has the famed kaiju; and Halloween has the masked killer Michael Myers brandishing his signature knife.

Other “Happy Meals” include those for Psycho, Kill Bill, Aliens, Resident Evil, and more (including some non-horror selections).
