On October 26th 2015, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release "The Exorcist: The Complete Anthology", the entire collection.
A true cinema landmark, the theological thriller is one of the top ten box-office performers of all time. The Exorcist took 10 Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture, and won two Oscars®, for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as winning for Best Sound. Subsequently, the film went on to become a multi-million pound franchise.
In 1977 John Boorman (Deliverance) directed "Exorcist II: The Heretic" starring Linda Blair and Richard Burton; in 1990, the creator of the series, William Peter Blatty, wrote and directed "Exorcist III" starring George C Scott.
In 2004 Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger) directed The Exorcist prequel, "Exorcist: The Beginning". The anthology also includes Paul Schrader’s film "Dominion: Prequel to The Exorcist" that the production company originally shelved in favour of Harlin’s film. Blatty himself regards Schrader’s film as ‘a handsome, classy, elegant piece of work’.
