I was reading the user comments on Exorcist II: The Heretic over at IMDB to see others opinions of the film.. I noticed tow or threepeople mention an original 3 hour cut of the film which is rumored to be far superior to the "butchered" version that was released to theaters. One of the users wrote: "I was fortunate enough to see the extended, three-hour plus cut of this movie in its original preview run, and what I saw took my breath away. In its complete state, EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC could have very well been one of the best sequels ever made, worthy of mention in the same vein as ALIENS, GODFATHER 2 and even TERMINATOR 2." I wonder if John Boorman would be interested in revisiting this film and returning it to the original runtime. And if he was would Warner let him do so. It would be wonderful if Warner would include this version on the DVD, but I'd probably be more likely to see a Five Star Edition of Porky's Revenge from Fox than that actually happening. I guess I should thank Warner for even releasing this film to DVD at all. Would anyone else like to see the uncut version.
