What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
The scariest and most fascinating collection of movies in modern horror. At the center of these ultimate clashes between darkness and light are intrepid souls who dare to look evil in the eye and unsheathe the weapons of faith. The struggle begins with the trend-setting The Exorcist (presented in its Original Theatrical Version and the longer Version You've Never Seen reissue). The Exorcist 2: The Heretic and The Exorcist 3: bring added perspectives, blood-curdling visuals and shocks to the harrowing tale. And the two prequel stories (by two different directors) of Dominion / The Beginning enrich the original by revealing the amazing genesis of the battle between Father Merrin and humanity's most insidious foe.

My only problem with the Blu-ray release is that it is lacking the individual liner notes about the films that were on the separate slim DVD cases in the first edition. This new Blu-ray version should have included a booklet with that information to make it more complete.
Although some may disagree, I believe this Anthology should be watched in this viewing order:
Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist (2005) ***
Exorcist: The Beginning (2004) ***
Exorcist, The (1973) ***** Theatrical Version
Exorcist, The (2000) ***** Extended Director's Cut
Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) *
Exorcist III (1990) ***
The Exorcist *****
Regan (Linda Blair), the sweet & lovable daughter of a famous actress (Ellen Burstyn) is suddenly struck down with an unknown cerebral disorder and her clueless doctor's are unable to determine what's causing her ailment. It becomes apparent that the poor child is possessed by an evil demon who is determined in destroying the poor child's soul. The monstrous entity takes total control of her body and transforms her from a sweet 12 year old into a violent, cussing, bile spewing creature with a bad temper and who likes to do bad things with holy relics. A young, troubled priest (Jason Miller) and an older, more experienced priest (Max Von Sydow) are called in to exorcise the demon. A highly original & disturbing film that makes the unbelievable subject of demonic possession believable. This classic film, when released back in 1973, was controversial. People in the audience reportedly screamed, fainted and vomited when presented with the film's grisly spectacle. Despite the passing of the years, "The Exorcist" remains engrossing and an effective thriller and time has done nothing to diminish its impact. The performances from the cast are excellent and many received Oscar nominations. Despite the material, they pull off their roles successfully, never resorting to over-acting and the characters are given an emotional depth that is rare in horror pictures, at least the horror films of today. You get 2 versions of the film here; the original release and the "Version You've Never Seen".Read more ›
I personally don't care for the extended edition of the first movie, prefur the original theater copy (one of the few extended editions I would say this about).
