Che cosa succede alla piccola Regan, trasformatasi in un mostro blasfemo che urla oscenità e frasi sconnesse? Sua madre, la famosa diva del cinema Chris MacNeil, non riesce a capirlo. Né ci riescono i medici e gli psichiatri né la polizia. Forse solo un esorcista può dare una risposta. Ma la Chiesa impone cautela, esige prove, chiede tempo. Intanto la casa risuona di colpi, i mobili si spostano da soli, un uomo muore con il collo spezzato, il fragile corpo di Regan sembra cedere alla tempesta che lo sconquassa. E lo scontro tra l'uomo di Dio e gli spiriti del Male sembra ormai inevitabile.
