The Exorcist (Director's Cut)

The Exorcist
  • 1973 (2000)
  • US
  • 2h 12min
  • 18
  • Directed by: William Friedkin
  • Cast: Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, Lee J. Cobb, Kitty Winn, Jack MacGowran, Jason Miller, Linda Blair

Writer William Peter Blatty always griped that in excising twenty minutes from The Exorcist, Friedkin removed its moral centre and obscured its theological message. To Blatty's horror, some people thought the Devil won. Friedkin has reinstated eleven minutes of footage, and the re-editing job is done so lovingly that fans are unlikely to feel cynically exploited. Even so, Friedkin's cuts have mostly been vindicated but­ it now feels too long, while the infamous 'spider walk' scene merely adds a cheap and redundant shock.

The Shining

The Shining
  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 26min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall, Philip Stone.

Kubrick's overwrought, overlong horror film dispenses with much of the psychic apparatus of Stephen King's novel to concentrate on the deeper horror of a family turning in on itself. Nicholson, with all the stops out, is bug-eyed and demonic as the writer cracking up violently in an isolated hotel, and the final scenes are, literally, chilling.
