"The Exorcist 3" sees writer William Peter Blatty return to direct this 'first true sequel' to the original film, based on his own novel. Fifteen years have passed since Father Damien Karras (Jason Miller) died exorcising Regan MacNeil. Now his best friend Lt. Kinderman (George C. Scott) is troubled by a series of mysterious murders which are strangely reminiscent of those committed by the Gemini killer - who was executed on the night Karras died. Does the killer's spirit live on, and if so in whom? Kinderman's investigation leads him to an amnesiac in a mental hospital who has recently awoken from a fifteen-year coma, can describe the Gemini killings in detail, and bears an uncanny resemblance to Damien Karras.

It was an ok horror film but it still lacks alot from the first film , but it is better than this second film which was terrible.

Despite its problems it is far better than I expected
- The Exorcist 3 review by JA
Probably no surprise that I prefer this to the second film (which this one ignores) but would it be sinful to say I actually preferred this just a bit more than the first? No it isn't perfect and I would like to see the original version that Blatty filmed but I just found it so much more engrossing than the original film while also being more tense, slightly scarier and featuring a lead character I could invest in. The few scenes involving both George C. Scott and Ed Flanders are funny, it is well shot, the plot though uneven due to the obvious reshoots is wholly entertaining, the casting is a good choice, I like the score and the script was mostly solid.
