No UK Blu-ray For The Pope’s Exorcist! Russell Crowe Horror

For some unknown reason Sony Pictures has decided the UK will not receive the Blu-ray version of Russell Crowe’s recent horror film, The Pope’s Exorcist (2023).

Update 27.07.23: For those of you that want this film on Blu-ray, I recommend purchasing the German import available from via Amazon EU. I’ve tested it, and plays in English from the start, whilst both documentaries are also in English.

I know this seems strange but unfortunately this DVD only approach happens all too often in the UK. Meanwhile movie lovers in countries such as Germany and Australia tend get the option of both Blu-ray and DVD.

I would recommend finding one these options, making sure it will play on your UK Blu-ray player, and purchasing that over the inferior DVD offering. In any case the DVD is available now in the UK.
