    Anyone have any information on this 2-disc set yet? I saw it listed with cover art in my latest update of DVDProfiler. It says that it's scheduled to be released on 12/1/2002. I'm hoping that it's going to be the 25th Anniversary disc and TVYNS disc together in a 2-Pack. It lists the UPC: 53866 69459. And the SRP is: $30.98. If anyone has anymore info on this release, please let me know. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Warner does not list this item in their press materials database, at least as of right now.

    Even though I already own the 25th anniversary DVD, I'd buy this if it is truly coming out. I know, I'm a sucker. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies, so far it looks like noone has any info on this set yet. Finally was able to get my online DVDprofiler to update, so here is a link to the page about the 2-disc set. Maybe that will help someone dig up some information. Hmm, seems I can't put a direct link in to the page. Oh well, let me link up the images atleast. [​IMG]

    I knew they'd eventually release this.

    Will it have the "Fear of God" BBC documentary?

    Or should I try to track down the 25th Anniversary SE disc? I've seen it around a few places, but for 20 bucks a pop.

    Knowing WB, it will probably be the same discs, just tossed into a new package. Oh well, atleast it's a 2-disc set. That way I don't have to put up with a crapper snapper case. Warner Bros. get with it and ditch those never sufficiantly damned snapper cases. [​IMG]

    This would be the 4th DVD release of this movie over the last 5 years. Is this some sort of record??

    I would buy this, if it had the excellent BBC documentary and if all the supplements from the 25th anniversary disc were on the SAME SIDE as the feature... I didn't realize how annoying flippers were until I got my changer. Although, I guess the 25th ann. disc isn't technically a flipper since it doesn't divide the movie.

    Truth be told, I watch that documentary more than the movie itself (I don't think the movie has a lot of "rewatchability").

    I think Army of Darkness holds that record with 5 releases

    I think Night of the Living Dead holds the record. I've lost count.

    I think we're up to seven releases of Nosferatu (1922) with the BFI one in the not distant future making 8.

    Looks like a homemade cover to me. I wonder if someone put one over on the DVD Profiler folks?

    I was wrong; Nosferatu has been released on DVD EIGHT times, but that still doesn't beat out NOTLD. Here are the releases of the 1922 Nosferatu (not counting the 2 releases of the 1979 Herzog remake):

    1. Original release of David Shepard's version by Image (release date unknown)-grey cover
    2. Elite-Masterworks of German Horror Cinema 2/22/2000
    3. Image revised David Shepard version, from different source materials and with some different extras 1/2/01 - red cover
    4. Arrow (Type O Negative score) 5/29/01
    5. Gothic Industrial Mix (Music Video) 9/11/2001
    6. German Silent Masterworks (Ventura) 11/1/2001
    7. Reel Values Horror Classics #1 3/12/2002
    8. Kino version 9/24/02 (available singly and as part of the German Horror box set).

    NOTLD still looks like the champion, though, with a heck of a lot more than 6 releases:

    1. United American 7/15/1997
    2. Elite 8/6/1997
    3. Master Tone 11/14/1997
    4. Madacy 5/19/1998
    5. Fright Night #1 set from Madacy 12/22/1998
    6. 30th Anniversary (recut/screwed-with/footage added) Anchor Bay 8/24/1999
    7. Vault of Horror set 1/29/02
    8. Great Scary Movies set 2/19/02
    9. Elite Millennium Edition 3/12/02
    10. Reel Values Horror Classics #10 7/16/02

    Image also lists a double feature disc with Sleepy Hollow High and another with Carnival of Souls, but I can't get at the information; if these exist that brings the total up to a dozen releases!

    Actually, this will be the fifth dvd release because I already own four dvd releases of "The Exorcist" and no, I'm not buying another dvd release, but a future HD-DVD release is a possibility.
    • The Exorcist - Released 8/22/97
    • The Exorcist 25th Anniversary: Special Edition - Released 12/1/98
    • The Exorcist: Collector's Edition - Released 11/23/99
    • The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen - Released 12/26/00
