Format: DVD
To start off with, this movie should have been called " Legion " not " Exorcist 3 "; obviously, Mr. William Peter Blatty { in a director debut nothing short of astonishing } was under some studio pressure to sell the movie as a sequel to attract mviegoers. " Legion " is a continuation of Det. Kinderman---played wonderfully and world weary by the magnificant George C. Scott---dealing with grisly murders that AT FIRST appear to be the work of a copycat of the ruthless and evil " Gemmini Killer "
James Venemin. But later on Kinderman gets more than he ever bargined for: following the murder of his friend Father Dyer who is admitted into a hospital { a gruesome one that appears to be the work of the killer Kinderman is after }, the detective is blown away to find in a " isolation tank " in the psyche ward of the hospital...Father Karras! But Father Karras is claiming to be James Venimen , who appears often to the viewer as a particular psychopathic Brad Douriff { who is iddeally evil here playing the role with satanic glee }!
This movie contains very little gore; is thought provoking, atmospheric and VERY scary. And seeing the " Exorcist " s 1 or 2 is completly uneccesary to understand it and to enjoy this movie which deals with the evils of Man, as one reviewer said befor, the silence of God, demons both figuritively and literly, and most compelling, Kinderman's stuggling faith.

The rule of Hollywood series: the first movie is the best one, followed by inferior sequel, and then a third one which is guaranteed to be awful in every way.

But every rule has an exception, and one of those is "The Exorcist III: Legion," which thankfully ignores the ghastly "Exorcist II." We can thank William Peter Blatty (author of the original "Exorcist" novel) who wrote and directed this movie -- and between his vivid, clever writing and some truly haunting performances, it's a gloriously eerie horror movie. The one downside: a truly awful ending pasted on by the bloody studio.

World-weary Lieutenant William F. Kinderman (George C. Scott) is called in on a series of bizarre serial killers in Georgetown -- first a young boy is crucified, decapitated and has the head of a Christ statue placed on his neck, and then a priest is brutally murdered in a confessional. But the crimes strike home for Kinderman when his good friend, Father Dyer (Ed Flanders), is found in the hospital -- decapitated, with all his blood drained.

Certain trademarks of the brutal slayings line up with "The Gemini" (Brad Dourif), a serial killer from fifteen years ago. But there are two slight problems with this idea: the fingerprints are all from different people, and the Gemini was executed fifteen years ago. The key to this case may lie in a mysterious patient being held at the hospital, who recently came out of a catatonic state... and claims to be the Gemini Killer, possessing another man's body.

I suspect that "Exorcist III" would be more highly regarded if the title did not tie it to one of the most influential horror movies of all time.

While The Exorcist is a world class film, a real genre classic, part two and part three are a total waste of time. Slow and boring with nothing of interest to add. Arguably better the Part II, but that's not saying much.

William Peter Blatty adapted his novel and directed the film version of the second sequel to his blockbuster hit. Fifteen years later, Lt. William F. Kinderman (played here by George C. Scott, RIP) is still haunted by the tragic, mysterious death of his friend, Father Damien Karras (the the late Jason Miller, back in fine form). Then a grisly string of murders he investigates seems strangely connected with a case he worked several years previously. The culprit was the Gemini Killer, and Kinderman is informed that a patient in the psychiatric ward of the local hospital is claiming responsibility for the crimes. The detective decides to confront the patient, but he knows it's impossible for this person to be the Gemini - the murderer was executed in the electric chair - on the very night that Father Karras successfully expelled the demon in the first film.
Kinderman is in no way prepared for what he is about to face - evil wearing the face of his old friend, the priest's soul being tormented for the devil's pleasure - and a bloody rampage that claims the life of another friend, Father Joesph Dyer (Ed Flanders, RIP). Braving the supernatural force, the detective must face his worst foe to end the crime spree and free his friend's soul . . . . . .
Blatty wisely did not try to top his original masterpiece; instead, he presents a portrait of a few of his key characters engaged in their own battles and trying to contemplate the meaning of life and death in general, all the while incorporated the supernatural to reach the point. The movie seems to have a more significant meaning since many of the top billed cast members have now passed on. Understandably, the film did not do well at the box office due to the previous sequel's disaster, but LEGION is an underrated gem. If you have seen the first film, you might like to see this one. Try to remember that it became before "The Silence Of The Lambs".
