by Thomas Tuna

The ultimate possession comes home.

The Exorcist–the 1973 horror classic that still terrifies audiences today–will celebrate its 50th anniversary with 4K Ultra HD and digital releases next month.

Slated for a Sept. 19 release, the remastered edition will include the theatrical run along with the 2000 extended director’s cut–featuring an additional 10 minutes of footage.

Bonuses include an introduction from director William Friedkin, two commentaries, interviews, trailers and TV spots. In addition, behind-the-scenes content will include The Fear of God: 25 Years of The Exorcist and Raising Hell Filming The Exorcist.

The Exorcist--helmed by Friedkin from a screenplay by William Peter Blatty (based on his 1971 novel)–stars Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, Jason Miller and Linda Blair. As all horror fans know, the storyline follows the demonic possession of a girl and her mother’s attempt to save her through an exorcism. The film was the first horror movie to earn a Best Picture Oscar nomination.
