NYT on Schrader's Exorcist Prequel
Dave Kehr has a great article in the New York Times (registration required) about Paul Schrader's version of the Exorcist prequel, now titled Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist, which is about to finally get a limited theatrical release with a DVD likely to follow. Kehr also provides a good overview of the whole Exorcist prequel saga, in case you're not up to speed on it. In one interesting tidbit, William Peter Blatty (author of the original Exorcist novel and director of Exorcist III) recounts going to a screening of Renny Harlin's version of the film with Paul Schrader: "After a slam-bang opening sequence, Harlin's prequel deteriorated into what was surely the most humiliating professional experience of my life, particularly the finale. I don't blame Renny Harlin, for he gave Morgan Creek, I promise you, precisely what Morgan Creek demanded: not shocking obscenity, but shocking vulgarity."
