William Peter Blatty's director's cut of "The Exorcist III" which was thought to be lost. Recovered and released in 2016 under its original title, this is the definitive cut of the film based on his novel "Legion"
A new commanding officer arrives at a remote castle serving as an insane asylum for crazy and AWOL U.S.M.C. soldiers where he attempts to rehabilitate them by allowing them to live out ... See full summary »
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.

George C. Scott said of the film, "It's a horror film and much more... It's a real drama, intricately crafted, with offbeat interesting characters...and that's what makes it genuinely frightening. See more »
The buildings depicted as being Georgetown University Hospital in the film occupy a block near the school's main campus. They actually housed the hospital from 1898 to 1930. However, after that, the hospital moved to a much larger campus a few blocks northwest. At the time of filming, the old hospital complex housed a variety of non-medical activities, and its internal geography bore no relation to the interiors depicted in the film. The hospital room where Kinderman views the blood vials is located, judging from its view, where a student apartment was in real life. The corridor outside the room would have run through a wall into an adjoining classroom building. The interior decor of the hospital is based on Georgetown's student center, which represented the hospital in some location shots. 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.

Funny how unorthodox arrangement and scenarios incite unspeakably talented film-making. I can't think of another movie which has an author adapting his own novel into a screenplay AND directing a movie. The exorcist III is by far the best horror/thriller of all time and I don't see it being topped at anytime. It is so much better than the first, the sole reason why they decided to add footage to the original containing elements from the third installment. IF the original exorcist WERE better than the exorcist III, why would they edit the original using the very same elements used in the Third? I can't explain that, but some believe it. I believe many have not seen the Exorcist III, and even after watching it they simply do not understand it to be frightened by it. The exorcist III combines true character development with crime drama, horror, and suspense, utterly perfect movie making. Jtown
