Review [2] It has been four years since Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair) was possessed by the demon Pasuzu, leading to a horrific ordeal for all involved. But now Father Merrin (Max von Sydow) has passed on and Father Lamont (Richard Burton) has been called in by the Vatican, to uncover the truth behind Regan's demonic possession. His trek takes him into Africa, where he finds that the demon Kokumo has taken over someone, but since Merrin had defeated the demon before, Lamont is able to speak with the presence.

Review [3] I don't think many people have seen this film, and I think even fewer realize that it was written and directed by William Peter Blatty, author of the original Exorcist. So, while it's not quite as chilling as the first story, It is at least a quality sequel and not some crappy knockoff by a third party made solely for the $$$

Review [Begining] You didn't need supernatural powers to predict that Exorcist - The Beginning would horrify for all the wrong reasons. A prequel/sequel to the 70s shocker, it tells how the original's devil-battling priest (Max Von Sydow then; Stellan Skarsgard now) first grappled with demon-beast Pazuzu. The place? Africa. The era? The 40s. The result? Largely tedium; a botch job of mistimed scare scenes, bland characters and computer-generated hyenas - alieviated only by Skarsgard, who delivers a performance much better than the material deserves.

Review [3] For those of you who stay up nights listening to the house settle, William Peter Blatty scares up more horrific doings in The Exorcist III, the "official sequel" to the 1973 tale of demonic possession. As writer and director, Blatty prefers creaks, whispers and shadowed corridors to spinning heads and projectile vomiting. His style is spookily descriptive and his story slowly engrossing, but he hasn't created a hair-raising masterpiece here.

Review [1] The film is a triumph of special effects. Never for a moment--not when the little girl is possessed by the most disgusting of spirits, not when the bed is banging and the furniture flying and the vomit is welling out--are we less than convinced. The film contains brutal shocks, almost indescribable obscenities. That it received an R rating and not the X is stupefying.
