Exorcist II: The Heretic, one of the most infamous horror sequels in history (and that’s an understatement), will be given the chance to be properly reevaluated in the form of a serious upgrade on Blu-ray this Fall from Scream Factory.
Here’s all the details on the release so far…
• This will be branded as a 2-Disc “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date). U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).
• Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in August. However, we can confirm today that we will have a new high-definition transfer of two cuts of the film! (This 117 min version that has been on Blu-ray and DVD before and a shorter, alternate version that was created after the film’s initial release in 1977.) You’ll also be happy to know that we have a brand-new interview with ‘Regan’ herself, actress Linda Blair!
• The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from the CRP Group (Serial Mom, Drag me to Hell, Dead Ringers). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design.
National street date is planned for September 25. If you pre-order from Scream Factory, they'll ship it out two weeks early and you'll receive a poster of the cover art.
