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?
Father Dyer's joke about being addicted to lemon drops is actually present in "The Exorcist" novel, not in "Legion", in which this movie is based. Also, the inscription in Father Morning's room ("What we give to the poor is what we take with us when we die") can be read in Father Merrin's wallet in "The Exorcist" novel. Lt. Kinderman's rants about having a carp in his bathtub that won't allow him to bath can be read in both "The Exorcist" and "Legion". See more
The movie suggests that Kinderman and Father Karras/Patient X were longtime friends, but they only met once in the original film, and their meeting could hardly be called cordial. See more
