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. We've got all the details for what is to be the mother of all Exorcist releases!
Well ... I suppose its better than a remake. During an interview in the latest issue of Cemetery Dance magazine with William Peter Blatty, the author dropped some interesting things on fans and readers.
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?
