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
This movie is a classic, a great follow up to the original and directed by the original author of the book the first film was based on. The William Peter Blatty has a solid style right off the bat and a knowledge of suspense and horror. Easily worth the time to watch and one of my favorites.
One of those horror sequels that actually improve upon the first.
some great performances, notably Brad Dourif and Nicolle Williamson, and of course, George C. Scott. Everything that is weak and flawed about it is overcome by the energy of the high powered cast.
THIS IS ONE OF THE SCAREST MOVIES I'VE EVER WATCHED. Wish more horror movies were this scary.
