The Exorcist with Synapse Films’ Don May Jr.
For our latest ep, Jinx welcomes Don May Jr. to the show. A producer who owns and operates Synapse Films (the Blu-ray and DVD label responsible for releasing such titles as Thriller - A Cruel Picture, Vampyros Lesbos, Demons and Demons 2, Popcorn, Tenebrae, Phenomena, and the upcoming 40th Anniversary release of Suspiria), Mr. May has chosen to discuss William Friedkin’s 1973 film adaptation of William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist.
An undisputed horror classic, The Exorcist is actually the first film to make a return appearance on Scream Addicts (it was previously chosen by filmmaker Tom McLoughlin - listen here. During their discussion, Mr. May and Jinx touch on the first times they viewed the film, the power the film still holds, and their feelings on the film’s follow-ups. Along the way, they weigh the theatrical cut against “The Version You’ve Never Seen”, why The Exorcist is a bucket list release project for Mr. May and the part of the film that never should’ve received the Terminator 2 “morph” treatment.
It’s a wonderful and lengthy conversation with an excellent guest, and it’s one we hope you enjoy!
