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.

In addition to the demand of an exorcism scene to be included at the ending, the producers also wanted an actor from the first movie to be part of "The Exorcist III". Jason Miller
, who had played Father Karras in the first movie and was unavailable to shoot "The Exorcist III" when principal photography started, was called to shoot a few scenes as "Patient X". In order not to remove the work that had already been done by Brad Dourif
in that role, director William Peter Blatty decided to use footage of both actors. Thus, Jason Miller can be seen as Patient X when he's manifesting the Karras personality, and Brad Dourif can be seen when he's conveying the Gemini Killer personality. 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.
