The Exorcist (blu-ray)

The Exorcist Raising Hell

Mark Kermode’s The Fear of God is the definitive documentary on the making of The Exorcist. It was first broadcast on BBC2 in 1998, and an extended version (featuring interviews with actress Mercedes McCambridge and censor James Ferman) was released on the BBC iPlayer last year. However, the 2010 blu-ray release of The Exorcist contained a thirty-minute featurette, Raising Hell: Filming The Exorcist, which includes newly-discovered silent 16mm footage shot on the set. For the blu-ray release, Friedkin made some minor tweaks to his extended cut, removing two of the subliminal CGI demon faces he had added to The Version You’ve Never Seen in 2000.
