There are no opening credits after the title. Although it is commonplace now, it was unheard of in 1973. See more »
Both versions of the film were remixed in 5.1 surround sound for their DVD and Blu-ray releases. However, while the 5.1 mix for the theatrical version simply just remixes the soundtrack and expands some of the mono elements to stereo. The director's cut not only remixes the soundtrack, but the majority of the original sound effects were replaced with more modern ones. See more »

Stunning visuals, effects and overall horror for 1973. The characters are very strongly portrayed and the feeling of hopelessness is ever-present throughout the movie. Even though some scenes are outright shocking and provocative, there is also a strong element of the uncanny present. This is a very haunting movie that still shocks, amazes and intrigues after all these years.
