Warner Brothers have just released a 2 Disc sp ed of the best and only deserved sequel to one the greatest horror movies ever filmed “The Exorcist” – Exorcist 3.
Exorcist 2 was an insult and a disaster of epic proportions and does not even deserve a mention but needed to highlight that no 3 is stunning.
The new remastered Blu Ray offers you a 2k version of the film or the actual directors cut which has been painstakingly put together in such a way that either you will admire the efforts or think you have been ripped off. Due to lost footage of the original shoot – many scenes have been taken off the video release to keep the continuity of the film – so every now and then the film will look like a vhs in pan and scan.
If you can get past this experience then sit back and enjoy a true successor and an excellent sequel. George C Scott was fantastic in the movie – effortless yet he fills the screen with his presence. The soundtrack is excellent if not as iconic as it’s original – the premise of the story is excellent even though it was bashed by the critics due to the constant comparisons to no: 1.
I thoroughly enjoyed (even more this time)watching it again in Blu Ray – it is creepy, haunting, and if you are a true fan of the original then as long as you do not compare and expect the same again – as a stand alone – a terrific watch.
It is well worth investing in the Blu Ray from the US….go get exorcised !!!
