      Dr. Sapirstein just released his new fanedit: The Exorcist - 40th Anniversary Preservation
      This is a preservation work. A 40th anniversary restoration of the ultimate horror classic, presenting the film in its original version as seen at the time of its 1973 release and... never since.

      From Dr. Sapirstein:
      "Many sources were used to determine how the film looked and sounded in 1973. Once the aesthetic of each individual scene had been determined, the 1080p BluRay edition was used as a basis (with, occasionally, the odd SD shot inserted from the '97 DVD) and completely reworked (colours, tints, definition, grain and contrasts/lightness) to obtain a faithful recreation of the original theatrical release, as it looked before the powers that be decided to give it the George Lucas treatment. Restored picture : The whole film has been modified shot by shot to recreate its original definition, green hue and overall aesthetic. Restored shot : Original Warner Bros 1970s logo (intro + outro). Restored shot : The intro shot of the sun in Iraq has been restored in full colour. Restored shot : The infamous, non-CGI jump-cut of Father Karras' possession has been cleaned and restored. Restored audio : The original, Academy Award winning mono soundtrack has been restored (track 1). The original 1979 Dolby remix is featured on track 2, and a new DTS 5.1 mix, created from both the '73 mono mix and the 2010 remaster, is featured on track 3. The original French dub from 1973 (mono) is also available on track 4."
