William Peter Blatty

Farewell to the man who started it all, not just the EXORCIST series, but an entire genre unto itself. 

After penning the source novel (which is still a worthwhile read, no matter how many times you've seen the film) and the screenplay for Friedkin's masterpiece, he returned to write and direct THE EXORCIST III, a film that is debatably scarier than the original, which is itself often cited as the scariest ever made (a statement that holds up if you view it in the context of its 1973 release).
