All of Owen Roizman’s rare footage from the set of The Exorcist, uninterrupted

One of the most fascinating aspects of The Exorcist blu-ray release last year was the famed Owen Roizman footage from behind the scenes finally being shown for the first time. Never-before-seen footage of cast and crew working diligently in silence (the footage has no sound) to make one of the most famous horror films of all time makes for eerie viewing. Especially exciting for Exorcist fans who had desired such rare snippets for decades.

The footage was ultimately put to use in the documentary Raising Hell: Filming The Exorcist, which was top of the special features checklist for the jam-packed Exorcist blu-ray.

While the Raising Hell documentary itself was a fascinating watch (albeit still second to Mark Kermode’s brilliant The Fear of God), I would have loved the option to just watch the rare footage, without the modern-day interviews inter-cutting between snippets. So, I took it upon myself to cut all of said rarities into one uninterrupted video. You can watch it below.

  1. Jason, this is an outstanding post-production! Well done! I believe it should be included on the 40th Anniversary Ultimate Blu-Ray release in 2013!
