My last post on this came up blank - here's hoping you can read this one! Paul Schrader's movie Dominion the "prequel" to The Exorcist, is released on R1 DVD on October 25th. For those that don't know, this movie was completed by Schrader and was a cerebral, adult chiller. The studio suits were horrified because they wanted yet another stupid action movie to sell to brain dead 15 year olds in Kansas. So, they shelved this movie (bye-bye $100 million ) and brought in a new director (Renny Harlin) and a new script and started again. Note - they didn't re-shoot a few scenes or tweak the footage, they made a whole new movie. Harlin gave the studio the movie they wanted with the required DUUUH! factor, and -quel surprise- it was a monumental turkey that tanked at the box-office, while those priviliged few that had seen Schrader's version had nothing but praise for it. So, hot on the heels of the DVD release of Harlin's version doing similarly stinko business to the cinema release, the studio finally gives us the movie we should have had in the first place. Looking forward to this immensely!
