You feminist horror fans out there probably already know that The Exorcist is being re-released next week on Blu-Ray and DVD, complete with new special features and an extended director’s cut. What you might not know, however, is that your friends at Bitch Media (hi, that’s us) have five copies of said DVD that we’ll be giving away throughout the month of October as a part of our Horror Show series celebrating feminist horror in pop culture!
Each week throughout the month of Shock-tober (scary!!!) we’ll publish a Horror Show blog post on a different feminism/horror-related topic. The best comment in the thread will win a copy of The Exorcist on DVD, as well as eternal bragging rights. Be sure to register when you comment so that we’ll have a way to get in touch with you and let you know if you’re the winner.
The contest starts right now! Here’s a prompt: If you were able to remake one classic horror film with female characters/a feminist plot twist, what would it be? How would you do it?
Here’s the 1973 trailer for The Exorcist to get you motivated. Watch and enter the contest at your own risk!!! Good luck!
