Lt. Kinderman and Father Dyer cheer each other up on the anniversary of the death of their mutual friend, Father Damien Karras, by going to see "It's a Wonderful Life" at the local theater in Georgetown, near Washington D.C. But there's no cheering Kinderman while a particularly cruel and gruesome serial killer is at large. His murders, which involve torture, decapitation and the desecration of religious icons, is bad enough; but they also resemble those of the Gemini Killer, who has been dead for fifteen years.

Did You Know?
Regan is never mentioned in the film by name and is only referenced in retrospect as the "MacNeil kid" involved in an exorcism several years prior. In fact, the two sequels to the first Exorcist show the fates of two different sets of characters - Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) shows what happened to Regan, Sharon and Merrin's backstory and mentions what Chris is doing, while Exorcist III shows what happened to Kinderman, Dyer and Karras.

The Gemini Killer
I like plays. The good ones... Shakespeare... I like Titus Andronicus the best; it's sweet. Incidentally, did you know that you are talking to an artist? I sometimes do special things to my victims: things that are creative. Of course, it takes knowledge, pride in your work... For example, a decapitated head can continue to see for approximately twenty seconds. So when I have one that's gawking, I always hold it up so that it can see its body. It's a little extra I throw in for no added charge....
