The Exorcist III (1990)

November 22nd, 2021

After recovering from last week's dive into Exorcist II, we're ending the month with the oft-misunderstood Exorcist III from 1990, written and directed by William Peter Blatty, the original author of The Exorcist. You don't want to miss this one, listeners, because there's some definite moments of horror zen in this grey sea of monologues. The film stars George C. Scott, Brad Dourif, Ed Flanders, Jason Miller, and Nicol Williamson.
