Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 09/22/2000
"...THE EXORCIST retains the power to turn heads--and stomachs....A new shocker has been included: the infamous "spider walk," in which Blair's Regan descends the stairs like a crazed crab, bent over backward, mouth gushing blood..."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/29/2000
"...THE EXORCIST remains the ultimate exploitation-nightmare vision of the onslaught of adolescence....[It speaks] to a larger, if unconscious, collective fear..." -- Rating: A-
Chicago Sun-Times - 09/22/2000
"...THE EXORCIST was and is a brilliant horror film, one with an archetypal ability to reach and disturb us. It will survive as long as people care about well-made movies..."

Product Description:

With a digitally remastered soundtrack including new sound effects and new music along with never-before-seen restored footage, THE EXORCIST: THE VERSION YOU'VE NEVER SEEN pays tribute to this terrifying film, originally released on Christmas Day in 1973. It tells the story of Regan (Linda Blair), a little girl who becomes possessed by the devil and undergoes a violent exorcism conducted by two priests: an aging man at the end of his career (Max Von Sydow) and a young man having a crisis of conscience (Jason Miller). A blood-chilling film directed by William Friedkin and written by William Peter Blatty, this enhanced restoration of the original will thrill audiences anew.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical Release: September 22, 2000
  • Ellen Burstyn suffered permanent injury to her spine during shooting of the scene in which she is knocked across the room.
  • Friedkin punched Father William O'Malley during shooting of Father Karras's death scene to elicit a better performance.
  • This new release includes 12 minutes of additional footage, including the infamous "spider-walk" scene, in which the possessed Regan walks backward on all fours down a staircase; it also includes scenes that provide additional psychological background on Regan, more subliminal, shadowy shots of the demon, and an alternate ending with a lighter tone than the original release.
