Mark Kermode’s BFI Classic text on The Exorcist has been given a fresh printing, and gets a brand new posh front cover as well.


Latest issues of our independent film magazines now available at

There’s a rumour going around that film critic and occasional bass basher Mark Kermode is rather a fan of William Friedkin’s 1973 horror movie The Exorcist. There are clues out there to back this rumour up, and one of them is the book he wrote on the movie for the BFI Classics series of texts.

Originally published in 1997, the book was revised in the early 2000s when new material was discovered. At the heart of the text is an interview with Friedkin about the project, along with the late writer and producer of the movie, William Peter Blatty.

Furthermore, along with the words, there are stills from the movie included as well. And it’s quite the purchase for fans of the movie.

What’s more, the BFI has now given it a posh reprint with an equally posh cover, and it’s available now. You can find more information and order a copy right here.

Furthermore, there’s a list of the 50 books in the BFI Classics series here as well, if that’s whetted your appetite.

We’ll leave you with the book cover from the new reprint…
