The Exorcist was an Earth horror film.

Commander Tucker convinced Doctor Phlox to watch The Exorcist in 2154. The next week, Phlox wished he hadn't done so, as he began to feel frightened while he was alone on the Enterprise with the crew in stasis. (ENT: "Doctor's Orders")

Of all the films mentioned on Star Trek that exist in the real world, The Exorcist was the one most recently released.
This film, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 256), was "directed by William Friedkin, adapted from a novel by William Peter Blatty. The 1973 film is considered to be a classic of the horror genre, telling of a 20th-century religious leader who attempts to purge the effects of a sinister supernatural being from a young girl."
