Warner Home Video let us know this morning that the upcoming 25th Anniversary Special Edition of William Friedkin’s “The Exorcist” has been delayed by two weeks. The disc’s release is now scheduled for October 27.
This Special Edition will include some rare and ultra rare materials that were long considered lost. It will
contain an introduction by Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin himself, as well as “The Fear Of God: The Making Of The Exorcist”, an expanded 75-minute featurette, that is a new documentary produced by the BBC specifically for the film’s 25th
Anniversary Edition, featuring more than 11 minutes of never-before-seen footage – including the infamous spider-walk scene! It also contains new interviews with Friedkin and best-selling author William Peter Blatty, who wrote the novel on which “The Exorcist” is
based, as well as new interviews with the film’s stars.
