Scream Factory is releasing William Peter Blatty‘s cult classic The Exorcist III (1990) on Blu-ray. This version will include the director’s cut of the film. You can purchase the 2-disc Blu-ray on October 25, 2016. George C. Scott, Ed Flanders, and Brad Dourif star in The Exorcist III.
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 of) 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.
Directed by William Peter Blatty
Official Synopsis: Lt. Kinderman and Father Dyer cheer each other up on the anniversary of the death of their mutual friend, Father Damien Karras, by going to see "It's a Wonderful Life" at the local theater in Georgetown, near Washington D.C. But there's no cheering Kinderman while a particularly cruel and gruesome serial killer is at large. His murders, which involve torture, decapitation and the desecration of religious icons, is bad enough; but they also resemble those of the Gemini Killer, who has been dead for fifteen years.
