After audiences were possessed by The Exorcist rerelease in 2000 Warner Bros was compelled to return to the well and try to revive the Exorcist franchise. In a bit of cinema history, they hired director Paul Schrader to direct Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist, but once completed they shelved the film and hired Renny Harlin to make a new film based on the same script! Due to lawsuits, Schrader's version was eventually completed and also released, giving audiences two views of the same basic film. On this episode of Now Playing, Arnie, Stuart, and Brock look at Schrader's original take on Father Merrin's early battle with the demons. Was this film deserving of its fate, or should it never have been released? If you donate to Now Playing, you can listen and find out!
