    FYI. When the extended cut of THE EXORCIST first came out, Friedkin claimed it was done without his approval. He liked his original cut (which keeps the bulk of Regan’s devil possession in her room) and did not approve of adding the “spider walk” scene. The distributor was hellbent on having a “director’s cut” so that they could sell another version of the movie, hoping that people who bought it the first time would buy it again. At the time, they called it the “extended cut,” and not the director’s cut. It’s hard to find Friedkin’s original version now. I have it on tape. When I show it in class, that’s the version I show.

      Fortunately, the blu-ray includes both versions of the film. I hadn’t ever seen the extended version before, which is now labeled as the “Extended Director’s Cut”, and I agree the original is better. I also agree that the whole “Director’s Cut” cottage industry is a joke.
