The Exorcist still gets under the skin after 40 years, and, a lack of new extras notwithstanding, Warner Home Video celebrates the stalwart horror landmark's anniversary with an impressive package.

Its power lies in the slow and gradual way it pulls us in, coupled with director William Friedkin's ability to render every aspect utterly plausible.

The behind the scenes documentary is great and reveals how the use of practical, on set effects added to the success of the film.

The Blu-ray transfers look and sound better than ever, and a good, scary movie remains a good, scary movie no matter what the edition. (Blu-ray Book)

For the DVD's remastered edition, helmer Friedkin added previously unseen footage, including a horrifying spiderwalk scene that's as jaw-dropping as the rest of the scary film. A must see for fans of the film whose story is expanded and sound remixed
