Synopsis 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....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......THE EXORCIST remains the ultimate exploitation-nightmare vision of the onslaught of adolescence....[It speaks] to a larger, if unconscious, collective fear... -- Rating: A-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....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...
