It's an excellent day for one hell of a deal!
THE GOODS : The recent two disc Blu-ray book release of The Exorcist, featuring enough bonus features to make your head spin (outlined below), a 40 page booklet, a personal note from director William Friedkin & newly remastered prints of both the original theatrical cut and the unrated director's cut of the film.
