The exorcist by William Friedkin ( Visual )
21 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Actress Chris MacNeil becomes increasingly disturbed by the inexplicable behavior of her 12-year-old daughter Regan--mouthing obscenities, predicting the murder of one of Chris's friends, and urinating in public. Doctors and psychologists have no explanation and as a last option, Chris consults a priest. Father Damian Karras, a Jesuit who is having doubts about his own faith following his mother's death, investigates. Karras comes to no other conclusion that Regan is possessed by a demon. Father Merrin, an older Jesuit, helps Father Karras perform an exorcism, battling the demons inside the child. As much a film about Catholicism and the crisis of faith in the modern world as possession, the Exorcist remains a brilliant horror film, one with an archetypal ability to reach and disturb viewers

Tanz der Vampire ( Visual )
15 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in German and English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das Böse bedroht die Welt: In den finsteren Karpaten feilen blutsaugende Vampire schon ihre Eckzähne. Der zauselige alte Professor Ambrosius von der Universität Königsberg und sein hasenfüßiger Assistent Alfred reisen daher ins tiefverschneite Herz der Finsternis, um den Schrecken mit Knoblauch und Kruzifix zu bannen. Doch auf dem Schloß des Obervampirs Graf Krolock und seines schwulen Sohnes Herbert entwickeln sich die Dinge zu einer großen Katastrophe, an deren Verlauf auch die schöne Wirtstocher Sarah nicht ganz unschuldig ist. Roman Polanskis erste Hollywood-Produktion wurde in Europa ein Klassiker, und in den USA aufgrund "entstellender Kürzungen" (so der Regisseur) zum Flop. Polanski hatte ganze sieben Monate als Regisseur, Drehbuchautor, Koproduzent und Hauptdarsteller gearbeitet. Seine Mammutarbeit hat sich gelohnt: "Tanz der Vampire" ist ein ausgesuchtes Panoptikum skurriler Karikaturen und eine liebevolle Hommage an das gute, alte Horrorkino. Polanski führt uns zu der Erkenntnis, daß der Teufel immer im Detail steckt und daß die Welt nun mal nicht zu retten ist. Schon gar nicht, wenn die edlen Retter ständig über ihre eigenen Füße stolpern
