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.

William Peter Blatty
wanted the film to be titled simply "Legion", just like his novel of the same name. The producers, however, wanted the title to be "The Exorcist III" for commercial reasons. Blatty even tried to convince them to alter it to "Exorcist 1990" in order to distance it from Exorcist II: The Heretic
(1977), which he despised, but had to settle for "Exorcist III" notwithstanding. See more
When Kinderman connects the murder victims in this film to the case in the first movie, it is revealed that one victim, the African American boy, is connected because it was his mother that determined that Reagan was speaking backward English. However, when you watch the first movie, the person that determines the language is a man that is Caucasion. See more
Death, be not proud, though some have called thee mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so; For those who think'st thou dost overthrow die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
