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 pure phycological horror here at its best . In my opinion better than the first I know your probably thinking ..,what? But yes intricate and a slow burn Blatty is perfect here near flawless execution . The original ending however does not include the exorcism scene as Bill simp,y shoots venamon at the end warner bros made Blatty reshoot the ending cuz they wanted an exorcism scene in the film but original ending would have still worked I give this classic a perfect 5 skulls scene this film many times I say...many.....for we are legion......
Fun. Similar in tone and pacing to Heriditary, and before its time in that way....
Classic. Gives me goosebumps every time I watch it
