If there's one thing we love around here it's claymation. It's just so much more fascinating than anything we've seen that's CGI. Another thing we love? The Exorcist a.k.a. the movie that single-handedly ruined the chances of success for just about any filmmaker who dared to make a possession flick. Put them both together and you get one thing ... A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF WIN.

Other than Fox's Alien box set our most looked forward to Blu-ray release of the year is without question Warner Brothers' high definition treatment of The Exorcist. The set is just stacked from top to bottom, and if you need any more convincing, then dig on the following trailer.
Along with Fox's Blu-ray release of the Alien box set and Universal's Blu-ray release of Psycho, there's only one other Blu-ray release this year that has our blood boiling like holy water on the skin of a demon - Warner Brothers' Blu-ray edition of The Exorcist.

If there's one thing I hate, it's when directors 'revisit' their films YEARS after having made them and begin to tinker with their material. Let's not even mention George Lucas, but instead Walter Hill (what the hell did you do to The Warriors, goddammit!) and William Friedkin (sir, your new French Connection Blu-ray transfer is an abomination). These guys have come very close to destroying films of theirs once heralded as masterpieces. And what's worse?
