Director William Friedkin was a hot ticket in Hollywood after the success of The French Connection, and he turned heads (in more ways than one) when he decided to make The Exorcist as his follow-up film. Adapted by William Peter Blatty from his controversial bestseller, this shocking 1973 thriller set an intense and often-copied milestone for screen terror with its unflinching depiction of a young girl (Linda Blair) who is possessed by an evil spirit. Jason Miller and Max von Sydow are perfectly cast as the priests who risk their sanity and their lives to administer the rites of demonic exorcism. Ellen Burstyn plays Blair's mother, who can only stand by in horror as her daughter's body is wracked by Satanic disfiguration. One of the most frightening films ever made, The Exorcist was mysteriously plagued by trouble during production, and the years since have not diminished its capacity to disturb even the most stoic viewers. --Jeff ShannonSee all Editorial Reviews

|New Print of the exorcist.||
I can't find any evidence of it now but prior to the release of the 40th I thought I read that the new version would be remastered in a 4k evironment the way Blade runner was. I have never been happy with the 25th Anniversary DVD. It is blurry mess, artifacting throughout (especially in Iraq).... Read More

If you follow the complete story you find that Regan was chosen to be a vessel and the Ouija board was just the doorway which Bulzuzu chose to use. Father Marin had been fighting this demon since he was a young man and the demon statue represented the battle he had been waging for years.

This is in fact the SAME version, just repackaged. Another marketing ploy to part you from your money.
