3.0 out of 5 stars a review from an owner... big letdown time October 5, 2013
Okay, I love this movie and have purchased it in seemingly endless formats and editions but this was a HUGE letdown. One of my local stores had them out today (Friday before release date) and I grabbed it for $45.99 so it came to 50 bucks with tax.
What do you get?
the same 2 discs as before The Exorcist (Extended Director's Cut & Original Theatrical Edition) [Blu-ray]
One disc of the extended version with all the bonus features and the second disc of the theatrical cut with the bonus features the VERY SAME discs as previously released. This disc by the way contains the brilliant "FEAR OF EVIL" documentary by English Film critic Mark Kermode which hasn't even been reformated to 16 x 9 even though it still dominates the whole proceedings as the singular best documentary on this movie OF ALL.

so... for my 50 dollar triple dip into blu ray what did I get?
a small book which has an adapted version of the chapter in Billy Friedkins excellent book The Friedkin Connection: A Memoir since I have the book (did I mention it is excellent?) this was of little value
and a BONUS Disc!!
the BR bonus disc which I had been hearing about for some time contains a
27 minute (yep that is it ONLY 27 minutes) feature about William Peter Blatty going back to where it began. This is a very odd and interesting feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars My head is spinning... July 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
The following information comes from the WHV Press release.
As before, both the Extended Director's cut and the Theatrical cut are included. The 40th Anniversary Issue has 2 new special featurettes:
"Beyond Comprehension: William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist" 40 years after his novel was published,The Exorcist author, screenwriter and producer returns to where it all began. First stop is a guest house in the hills of Encino, California, where he wrote the novel. The author visits the place for the first time in 40 years and shares not only memories of writing the book, but also discusses how it inspired him. We then meet Blatty in two key and iconic locations; Georgetown University where the film was shot, and at the now-famous Exorcist steps. Throughout, Blatty reads from his novel, including an excerpt from a chilling newly published passage.
"Talk of the Devil" - While at Georgetown University, William Peter Blatty heard about a true case of possession from Father Eugene Gallagher. At the time the film came out, the priest talked at length about exorcism, the true story and about Blatty; this footage is now available for the first time in many years. It is as revealing as it is shocking.
Also included from the previous release:
· Two Commentaries and an introduction by William Friedkin
· A Commentary by William Peter Blatty
· 1998 BBC Documentary "The Fear of God: 25 Years of the Exorcist"
· Raising Hell: Filming the Exorcist Set footage produced and photographed by Owen Roizman, camera and makeup tests, and interviews with director William Friedkin, actress Linda Blair, author/screenwriter/producer William Peter Blatty and Owen Roizman.

Back on Blu-Ray in a new 40th Anniversay release, THE EXORCIST reprieves the same BD discs as the 2010 Digibook release of William Friedkin's blockbuster 1973 film, as well as adds a bonus disc with two new retrospective featurettes.

I've seen the picture many times over the years on video, though theatrically only once -- in its 2000 "Version You've Never Seen" edition, which has since been re-christened the "Extended Director's Cut." Not knowing how a packed audience of mostly-college students would react to that somewhat controversial re-edit of the groundbreaking horror classic, I sat pretty much in stunned silence as kids used to gore but little genuine scares from today's genre flicks sat quietly, patiently and spellbound by a movie that remains as fresh and potent today as it did decades ago.

This tale of demonic possession, shot in a documentary style by Friedkin and filled with tremendous performances (including Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, Max Von Sydow, and Lee J.Cobb), is obviously best remembered for cute little Linda Blair becoming inhabited by a demon that enjoys spewing buckets of pea soup and spouting endless profanities, but the other elements of the film remain just as intriguing and mysterious for me: the opening sequence of Von Sydow in Iraq, the strange coincidences and unexplained appearance of the "demon," and the religious themes which resonate throughout the movie and encourage repeat viewing.

Fans have long debated the alterations made to the 2000 revision -- which adds a fantastic new stereo soundtrack and some 10 minutes of footage author/screenwriter/ producer Blatty never wanted excised to begin with- but for me, I found that it actually has more narrative shape and moves just a bit more coherently than Friedkin's original cut.
