The Exorcist Blu-ray Anthology AnnouncedThough we don’t have exact specs and there is no formal announcement, we couldn’t help but share this latest sales sheet which shows that every single movie in the Exorcist franchise is getting set to hit Blu-ray! Read on for what we do know.

Judging from the ad below, The Exorcist, Exorcist II: The Heretic, Exorcist III, Exorcist: The Beginning, and Dominion: Prequel to The Exorcist will all be available in the upcoming The Exorcist: The Complete Anthology Blu-ray box set.

In addition, almost each individual film will be available as a single release on September 23rd. The only film not getting a separate single release is Dominion: Prequel to The Exorcist. Yep, if you want Paul Schrader’s take on the story of Father Merrin, you’re gonna have to pony up the extra cash.

The box set will cost $35.99, and the individual releases will run $16.99 each. Stay tuned for the official word.

Box Synopsis
Here it is.The scream of the crop. 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 it its original theatrical version and extended director’s cut). Exorcist II: The Heretic and The Exorcist III 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.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Are the prequels worth seeing at all? I always just assumed they sucked and skipped them. Probably not worth getting the whole anthology if the only things worth seeing are the original and the third one.

      Depends on who you ask. Some around here will say yes, others say they were garbage. For me, I know I saw them but don’t remember a damn thing about them. I would just buy the two I liked and be done with it. Sure, the box would look nice on my shelf, but I’d be staring at wasted money.

      Edit: Only 36 bucks? How the hell did I miss that? Well duh, buy the set. Even if you hate the others you’re not out any money.

    Maybe Matt can swing around a bolo and get the bees from The Heretic to bring it back.

    In truly odd news, the original version of this story disappeared so I had to re-run it. I blame Pazuzu.

      That was one of our most commented on stories of the week, too. Very spooky!
