Directed by William Peter Blatty
A cop (George C. Scott) investigates brutal murders similar to ones committed by a long-dead serial killer. But the decapitations and crucifixions couldn’t be the work of the “Gemini Killer” - or could they? After his priest is butchered in a hospital, Lt. Kinderman traces the clues to the psych ward, where a patient claims to be Damian Karras (Jason Miller), the priest who died during the final moments in THE EXORCIST. William Peter Blatty’s complex adaptation of his sequel novel, “Legion”, contains a hallway scare scene that belongs in the horror history books.

This is a good one, I stand by it. RedLetterMedia just did a great breakdown for this film on their YouTube channel, check it out if you need more convincing or insight.
This movie is one giant mind screw and I love it. The imagery is haunting, the acting is superb and there is some humour sprinkled into it. Well with the watch.
Saw the positive reviews, but this still surpassed my expectations. Greatly enjoyed this film from beginning to end.
Bonus points if you spotted Kevin Corrigan (Superbad, Pineapple Express)
Really effective horror, especially for the time.
