Details of The Exorcist: The Complete Anthology Films:
The Exorcist(Original Theatrical Version):
This is the original theatrical version of the film that scared the world! The Exorcist delivered a cultural earthquake that is still felt today, shocking and enthralling audiences, who had never seen anything like it. Directed by William Friedkin and written by William Peter Blatty (from his best-selling novel), The Exorcist won the Academy Award® for Best Adapted Screenplay. The film tells the now-famous story of a girl's demonic possession, and a gripping fight between good and evil. Linda Blair plays the young girl, Regan, who starts to exhibit strange, arcane behavior. Her mother (Ellen Burstyn, Oscar®-winner for Best Actress Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore) calls upon a priest, Father Karras (Jason Miller) to investigate. But Karras, who has self-doubts about faith, is suddenly confronted with unimaginable evil of Regan's possession. When Father Lankester Merrin (Max Von Sydow), a priest with a mysterious past, is called to help, a horrific battle for her soul begins.
The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen:
This remastered edition of The Exorcist proved to be a huge box-office draw, decades after its initial theatrical release. Director William Friedkin added previously unseen footage, including a horrifying "spiderwalk" scene that is as jaw-dropping and spellbinding as the best scenes of the original version. With remixed sound and an expanded story, this version of The Exorcist is a must-see for every fan of the film.
Exorcist II: The Heretic:
Film legend Richard Burton (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Sandpiper) stars as Father Lamont, a priest who answers the call to fight the forces of evil. Once again, Regan (Linda Blair) is threatened with demonic possession, and Father Lamont must first travel to Africa to find out how to stop the madness. This time, however, the demon not only threatens Regan, it reaches out for the soul of Father Lamont as well. Exorcist II: The Heretic also stars Louise Fletcher (TV's "ER"), Kitty Winn, Paul Henreid (Casablanca), James Earl Jones (Star Wars), Ned Beatty (Deliverance) and Max Von Sydow (Minority Report).
The Exorcist III:
Written and directed by Blatty, The Exorcist III stars George C. Scott (Academy Award® winner, Best Actor Patton), as a police investigator pitted against the supernatural. The events from the original The Exorcist have spawned an unholy serial killer, a vengeful spirit who resides within a priest. Lt. Kinderman (Scott) must join forces with the church in a desperate bid to stop a malignant evil from spreading, while the stakes for an exorcism prove more dangerous than ever. The Exorcist III also stars Ed Flanders, Brad Dourif, Jason Miller and Nicol Williamson (Spawn, Excalibur).
Exorcist: The Beginning:
In one of two thrilling "prequel" versions to Exorcist Director Renny Harlin (The Covenant, Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2) delivers a pulse-pounding tale of Father Merrin's first encounter with the demon Pazuzu, years before the events of Exorcist. Stellan Skarsgård (Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest) plays Father Merrin, who tries to put his past confrontation with the Nazi evil of World War II behind him. While on an archeological expedition to Africa, Merrin finds a long-secret church, hidden where it shouldn't be. As the expedition digs further, they uncover something awful, ancient and very much alive... something that drives all who come in contact with it to madness and worse. Loaded with action and sizzling special effects, Exorcist: The Beginning delivers a bold new chapter in The Exorcist saga.
Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist:
This is a completely different version of Father Merrin's first encounter with Pazuzu. Director Paul Schrader (writer of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull) delivers a dark adventure of "psychological horror," as Father Merrin (again played by Stellan Skarsgård) wrestles with his personal demons. Forced to make a horrible life and death choice during World War II, Merrin is scarred by the Nazi atrocities of the war, and haunted by his own feelings of guilt. On an archeological trip to Africa, an ancient church is uncovered, and demonic forces are unleashed. As violence and horror descend upon the expedition's camp, Merrin battles to retain his humanity as the forces of the demon threaten his very soul.
