The Theatrical Cut.

One might imagine that, after the debacle that was The Exorcist II, the franchise would have returned to the head-spinning and vomit spewing of the original, but to writer/director William Peter Blatty's credit, he tries something a little different with The Exorcist III, his film's serial killer plotline more akin to The Silence of the Lambs for much of the time. The nearest the film comes to William Friedkin's 1973 classic is with the brief special effects laden exorcism scene in the final act, which was forced upon Blatty by the film's producers.

The majority of the film sees George C. Scott's cop Kinderman investigating several gruesome murders that mimic the modus operandi of The Gemini Killer, who was executed in the electric chair fifteen years earlier. Kinderman's enquiries lead him to cell eleven of a secure hospital ward where a patient who resembles dead priest Father Damien Karras claims that he is the Gemini Killer, having possessed Karras's body as he died.

Sadly, as original as the majority of this film is, it also proves frustratingly dull for much of the time, with a glut of exposition heavy dialogue, an extremely slow pace, and only one decent scare (the much lauded hospital hallway scene) to keep the viewer from nodding off. As out-of-place as the studio sanctioned exorcism undeniably is, at least it's entertaining, which is more than I can say about George C. Scott's character complaining about a carp in his bath.

Another great sequel.

I was really looking forward to watching this movie in October, I have been wanting to watch this movie for a long time and now that I did, I must say that I loved it.

The first Exorcist was a fantastic film, one of the best ever made, incredibly effective and absorbing. The second Exorcist film I found to be underrated, but I must admit that not everyone can enjoy such a deranged trip, it moved away from the calmed but frightening atmosphere from the original and became an insane dream. This third entry in the series goes back to its routes, the tone is much closer to the original and the movie's imagery becomes disturbing again.

An interesting idea to make the third film a psychological thriller rather than an outright horror movie like the original, but it works. George C. Scott is amazing in this, such a great actor, Brad Dourif also delivers a really good performance, the man knows how to pay demented characters. The cinematography its amazing, not as breathtaking as the second one, but still great, this one doesn't bombard you with great visuals, it uses them when it needs to.

As expected, this is a depressing experience, a magnificent movie, I love the filmmaking in it, the themes, the music, the characters, the visuals, the writing, an outstanding film.

More possessed horror thrills!

This movie gives off another meaning of being possessed, where a mental patient is possessed by the evil spirit of a serial killer. He mysteriously beings a reign of terror, and a police lieutenant tries desperately to solve the murders and crack the mystery.

This is quite a good piece of horror cinema with a lot of tension and thrills, from the doom and gloom atmosphere surrounding the downtrodden, murders, and rage to the demon action. The latter, though, was limited throughout the movie. Much of the film is about solving the crimes, in a gloomy-type atmosphere that makes this movie look like a film-noir type setting.

There's some good and intense acting and some devilish frightening scenes, including the "creature-in-the-white-robe" scene. Not a bad horror sequel overall.

Grade B
