The Devil is in the building.

The Exorcist–the 1973 Oscar-nominated horror classic that has inspired a sequel that debuts Oct. 13–will be back in theaters in a couple of weeks, thanks to Fathom Events and Warner Bros.

To celebrate the iconic possession film’s 50th anniversary, the feature will hit the big screen Oct. 1 and 4 as part of Fathom’s annual Fright Fest lineup.

Included in the showings are an extended director’s cut with newly restored picture and sound in 4K, complete with footage previously unseen–including an alternate ending. This cut also includes appearances from director William Friedkin, screenwriter William Peter Blatty, star Linda Blair and cinematographer Owen Roizman.

The Exorcist–helmed by Friedkin from Blatty’s screenplay–stars Blair, Ellen Burstyn (who reprises her Chris MacNeil role in The Exorcist: Believer sequel), Max von Sydow and Jason Miller. As all fans know, the story follows a young girl (Blair) and her mother (Burstyn) as she tries to rescue her daughter through an exorcism.
