Disc of the Week: THE EXORCIST III

It’s been a hard go for EXORCIST fans throughout the years. After the original film arrived on the scene and delivered one of the most terrifying efforts in horror history, EXORCIST II appeared on screen and was instantly reviled. 13 years later, THE EXORCIST III came out to little fanfare and middling reviews following studio interference in the editing room.

We are also finally being treated to the original cut of THE EXORCIST III (titled LEGION) for the first time ever.
