The title of the academic treatise, which analyzes this movie in depth, is "East Meets West: Representing the Possessed Child in Frank De Felitta's / Robert Wise's Audrey Rose (1977)". It was written by Adrian Schober and published in 2004 in the journal Literature/Film Quarterly (Volume 32, Issue 1, pp. 60-70).
Ivy Templeton: Hi mom!
The school for girls where Ivy was sent during the trial was administrated by a character dressed as a Catholic nun and addressed as "mother superior". In the mid 1970s Catholic schools still had not fully embraced the celebration of Halloween due to its secular roots. Therefore, it is highly unlikely a Catholic school would allow a ritual with such pagan undertones as students dancing around a large bonfire to melt a giant snowman while chanting blessings for an early spring.
