Warner Home Video is bringing William Friedkin's controversial Academy Award-winning 1973 horror classic The Exorcist to Blu-ray in the UK on October 11. While the studio has yet to confirm the specifications for the UK release, we're crossing our fingers that it will be identical to the forthcoming US release, which takes the form of a two-disc set containing the original theatrical cut and Friedkin's extended director's cut, both completely restored and remastered in 1080p from the original camera negative.
Extras confirmed for the US release include audio commentaries for both versions, three new documentaries (Raising Hell: Filming The Exorcist, The Exorcist Locations: Then and Now, and Faces of Evil: The Different Versions of The Exorcist), trailers, TV spots, storyboard and art galleries, interviews and the 1998 BBC documentary The Fear of God: 25 Years of The Exorcist.
But what we're really eager to discover is whether or not Friedkin has altered the look of the film in any significant way for this release. As many of you will know, the filmmaker has already done this with last year's Blu-ray release of The French Connection, where he completely changed the colour timing for the entire film - upsetting many of the film's fans in the process. It didn't go down well with The Exorcist and The French Connection cinematographer Owen Roizman either, who called it 'atrocious' and 'horrifying' in an interview with a blog-radio show, before going on to state 'it would be a travesty to see The Exorcist transferred in this fashion'. We'll find out for ourselves in a few months if his worst fears have come true.
