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.

Cast: George C Scott, Ed Flanders, Brad Dourif, Jason Miller
Better than the book. Great movie. Brad Dourif is fantastic. Detective's mother is an unsung hero.
Make sure you check out the DC.
Great cast, Great story and excellent filming. The stupid hallway scene makes just everyone. And Brad Dourif, nuff said
I think this movie is really great in it's performances and cinematography but it suffers in a few places. There are spots where the ADR is terrible and The exposition in one scene gets a bit tedious. Honestly besides that it's really great. I haven't seen the director's cut yet but I'm really excited about it if this is supposed to be the inferior version of the film.
Huh...guess I'm alone here--I never liked this movie, except for one scene: autopsy scissors. That alone is worth 3 stars, at least.
