Twenty-five years ago, an extraordinary movie changed the face of modern cinema. I was eleven years old when "The Exorcist" opened in America on Boxing Day, 1973. And I can remember like yesterday the amazing reaction it caused. You couldn't open a newspaper or turn on the television without coming across some account of audiences queuing all night 'round the block just to see the film, only to dash out of the theaters, some of them straight into the nearest church.

excellent documentary, shame about all the stuff they cut,
I saw this documentary when it was first broadcast in the UK and was waiting with baited breath for the DVD release of "The Exorcist" with the knowledge that it was to be included as an extra feature.
Unfortunately the version included on the DVD is edited so that it no longer includes the presenter Mark Kermode or the contributions of Mercedes McCambridge. I don't see any reason why these sections were not included, in the case of Mark Kermode I feel his presence was necessary as he led the viewer through the massive back story much better than in the DVD version of the Documentary where sections seem far to patched together.
I still believe that the DVD version of the Documentary is one of the best ever but it was MUCH better when it was first broadcast.
