About this deal

In the Canadian television series, SCTV, Catherine O'Hara features in a skit, as Pazuzu/Regan, titled "Exorcising with Reagan Blair". The exception seems to be Pazuzu, who is described in ancient texts as "the son of Hanbu and king of the wind demons." He stands on two legs and has human arms ending in claws, with two pairs of wings, a scorpion's tail, a snake-headed, erect penis, and a horned, bearded head with bulging eyes and snarling canine mouth. Amulets with images of his full body or, more often, just his head, were common in the early first millennium B.C. Although not everyone will recognize the name "Pazuzu," his monstrous form appears in many unexpected places. A giant version by the contemporary artist Roberto Cuoghi comes to mind. Because of this, few likenesses of other demons, such as Ereshkigal the Queen of the Dead, were ever even made. Moreover, the size of the image also determined the amount of power it contained.

There are several statues of him in the catacombs and the pit. In his eponymous chapter, Eric can find a small statue of him. He is also mentioned on several secrets as well. Given the number of artifacts uncovered, it can probably be inferred that Pazuzu enjoyed great popularity, [9] and based upon the uniformity of the heads, amulets and statues, it has even been speculated that such representations of the demon/god were mass-produced. [8] Ritual texts [ edit ]In the Highlander television series, the statue of Pazuzu is used during a storyline in which Duncan MacLeod duels a Satan-like being. Amulets and other iconography of Pazuzu have been found in locations ranging from the Levant, Mesopotamia, and Iran to the Greek island of Sámos, while written sources describing Pazuzu began to appear around 670 B.C.E.

Guiley, Rosemary (2009). The Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology. Infobase Publishing. p.197. ISBN 978-1-4381-3191-7. Perhaps the most famous modern Pazuzu is the demon who possesses a twelve-year-old girl in the 1973 horror classic The Exorcist. Of the two priests charged with exorcising the demon, one has encountered the same malevolent spirit before, while participating in an archaeological dig. To the ancient Assyrians and Babylonians, however, demons were simply spirits. The word itself derives from the Greek word for spirit, “daimon,” and refers to lesser immortal beings that act as supernatural intermediaries between gods and humans. Demons might be sent to punish mortals, or else to encourage them to fulfill their duties.I am Pazuzu, son of Ḫanbu, king of the evil lilû-demons. I was enraged (in violent motion) against the strong mountains and ascended them." [15] I did find this YouTube video explaining the gross misrepresentation of Pazuzu’s purpose on this earth. The video’s presenter “Jony” maybe a tad over animated, however I feel his content is spot-on. The presenter offers an alternative theory as to why Pazuzu was seen as the possessing demon in the child Regan:
