Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Exorcist author William Peter Blatty exhumed the demonic possession tale -- 17 years after the original and 13 after the monumentally disappointing sequel -- for a walk on the frightfully disturbing side. This film, largely ignored and perhaps lost on a new generation of filmgoers, is as chilling as modern horror gets. While not worthy of the original's "classic" status, this rendition is full of flesh-crawling moments -- base horror hopped up by the addition of graphic gore. The film deals with the eternal battle between God and the Devil, generally digging deeper in the collective horror psyche and generating a more primordial sense of fear. Such metaphysical horror must be done well and Blatty succeeds in scaring the innards out of the viewer. George C. Scott gives a thoughtfully inspired performance, and an unheralded Samuel L. Jackson and Patrick Ewing make cameos. Although the film borrows a bit much from the Omen and Amityville traditions, overall it is authentically frightening in its execution.

Although it pales in comparisons to the first masterpiece, it does have many horrific moments and moves along pretty fast. Its been a few years since I watched this but the people in the room watching it with me all said it was a great chiller that got overlooked. Its well worth it to rent or buy as Brad Dourif plays a perfect demonic nut and the whole Gemini killings added some great spooky menace. Many scenes well done, a bit chatty here and there but a good storyline, George C. Scott adds some class to the role of Lt. Kinderman and discovers some really bizarre occult visual diceptions, without giving the story line away. A mystery/occult horror story with the benefit of pretty good acting leaves you chilled.

Exorcist III was overlooked and underappreciated when it was originally released. An interesting thriller, a murder mystery with supernatural overtones, which delivers genuinely frightening moments. Not your ordinary horror movie, brilliantly paced and stunningly photographed, intelligent (though the dialogue can be unrealistically witty at times) with the emphasis on developing its characters and presenting a compelling story rather than on shock and gore. Brad Dourif's supporting performance was Oscar worthy, and while the late, great Mr. Scott overacts now and then, the viewer can sense that he cared about the project and made a typically professional effort at realizing the role. Don't wait for Halloween to give this piece of underrated cinematic art serious consideration.
