Actress Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn) has every reason to be content, having just completed a film with director Burke Dennings (Jack MacGowran). However, she becomes disturbed by the changes taking place in her 12-year-old daughter, Regan (Linda Blair). At first sullen and withdrawn, Regan becomes aggressive and blasphemous, and ugly welts appear on her face and body. No medical cure is forthcoming, and after Burke is killed by being thrown from Regan's window, Chris turns to local Jesuit priest Father Damien Karras (Jason Miller) for help. Karras then calls in exorcist Father Lankester Merrin (Max von Sydow), who confirms that Regan is possessed by the devil. William Peter Blatty's screenplay, based on his own novel inspired by actual events, won an Oscar, and the film was deemed so powerful that it was refused a BBFC certificate for fifteen years.

The Exorcist is one of those film that age does not diminish regardless of how many times it is watched it still has the ability to entertain which is achieved by an outstanding cast, even Lee J. Cobb has the detective has a major (all be it small) roll to play.
But I must add, This film is a one off a kind so don't go watching the sequels as they will damage your experience and "enjoyment" of this great film.
This DVD comes with great amount of extra content. There are 2 commentary tracks. One by director William Friedkin and other one by the writer William Blatty. There is also The Fear Of God documentary which is around 55 minutes long. The documentary covers all the behind the scenes information on the film. Also on the disc there are 8 trailers, 6 TV spots, 3 interviews with William Friedkin and W. Blatty, original ending, sketches and storyboards. Overall there are enough extra content to satisfy any viewer.
This package is great value despite the slightly tacky marketing. If you've never seen The Exorcist or The Shining or they are absent from your horror film collection it's well worth a look.
The extras are great, revealing on both the realisation and reinterpretation of two classic horror novels by auteur directors at the peak of their powers who push the technical aspects of film making as hard as they push their actors. Both films have been remastered into 5.1 stereo and look in great shape.
Be warned that The Shining is the shorter version that Kubrick cut down for the UK audience after negative criticsm on it's US release. I'm personally undecided as to which version is better, having seen them both.
The Exorcist is likewise the shorter Theatrical version, but the cut scenes are on the extras side of the two sided DVD. Again, I'm not sure that this isn't a bad thing.
I'd certainly recommend anyone interested in the evolution of the horror film to check these out. They come from an era of high budget horror film making from before the slasher genre became so dominant, and both offer rich subtexts to be mulled over whilst succeeding as glossy entertainment with a few shocks and scares along the way.
