Lankester Merrin from The Exorcist

If you haven’t already had the pleasure of seeing The Exorcist, you might not know that it is THE CREEIPERST FRICKIN MOVIE EVER. Father Merrin is the guy in charge of the titular exorcism, trying to get rid of the demonic possession that has taken over the little girl. He was a big enough character to be the center of practically every Exorcist related film. Whether he’s played by Stellan Skarsgard or the original Max von Sydow, Father Merrin is an awesome character.
