For many years all I’ve wanted was to see a director’s cut of The Exorcist III… one that hopefully had that cool head-morph scene from the trailer that we never got. While I’m uncertain if we’ll get that, I am 100% certain Scream Factory is trying!
We’ll find out soon as Scream Factory just announced via Facebook that they’ll be bringing the film to Blu-ray in grand fashion!
Via the site:
You’ve heard the rumors for months…and they’re all true! William Peter Blatty’s cult favorite THE EXORCIST III will be bearing its cross on a 2-disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set from us on October 25th.
Extras (of which there are tons) are underway and will be announced at a date in Late Summer / Early Fall. The newly-designed front-facing artwork from Joel Robinson you see here is final (not pictured is the reverse wrap image which will showcase the original theatrical poster art.) Early pre-order now directly from us and receive a free 18″ x 24″ poster of the new art (while supplies last) plus early shipping!
We know that the biggest question you might have is: Will there be a “Director’s Cut” of the film? The answer is yes—but with some caveats. We are working on putting together a version that will be close to Blatty’s original script using a mixture of various film and video tape sources that we have been provided with. This is still a work in progress and we will update you with more details at the time we announce the full list of bonus materials.
