The Exorcist III Movie Review

So we're not talking about great art here. But pound for pound, this second sequel to The Exorcist is one of the most frightening movies ever made. Largely set in an old hospital, we find that Father Damien may very well be alive and kicking in the depths of the mental ward -- and possibly possessed by the devil and with the power to possess others at will to do his bidding outside the confines of the straightjacket.

I saw this film ten years ago and the scene with the head-chopper-offer and the nurse still gives me nightmares. Written and directed by William Peter Blatty (who wrote the original Exorcist; this is adapted from his book Legion), the film is creepy and true to the atmosphere of the original. (P.S. Watch for Fabio!)
