The Exorcist III (1993)

The Exorcist III is a 1990 American supernatural thriller written and directed by William Peter Blatty. It is the second sequel of The Exorcist series and a film adaptation of Blatty's novel, Legion (1983). The film stars George C. Scott, Brad Dourif, Ed Flanders, and Nicol Williamson. This is the only Exorcistfilm not to be distributed theatrically by Warner Bros., in which Warner Bros. would be the current distributor for the film.
Set fifteen years after the original film and ignoring the events of Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977), the film centers around the philosophical Lieutenant William F. Kinderman from the first film, investigating a baffling series of murders in Georgetown that appear to have a satanic motive behind them and furthermore have all the hallmarks of "The Gemini", a deceased serial killer.
Originally titled Legion, the film was drastically changed in post-production with re-writes and re-shoots ordered by the studio executives of Morgan Creek Productions, demanding the last-minute addition of an exorcism sequence, and the film was released as The Exorcist III in order to be more commercial. The final version differed from Blatty's vision; all of the cut footage is apparently lost.
