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.

Agree this should've been the sequel!!! Gotta love old school horror at it's finest!
Very underr8ed. Brad Douriff. George C. Scott. Xactly what I pictured when I read Legion while in the hospital 4 a blood clot surgery. Oh, that hallway scene... alwez gets me, as another reviewer said. Every. Time. This should have been the official sequel 2 The Excorcist just as the book was. The Heretic was REALLY AWFUL.
Excellent underrated movie.
This was definitely one of those overlooked films for many years! I got lucky as a young lad and found the VHS for this film and have loved it ever since!
Jeffrey Dahmer was watching this just before he got caught (fun fact)
