It's October 18 and each day feels more harrowing than the last. Is it because we're watching so many horror movies, or is it because we stare at Twitter too much? Who can say? It's probably that second one, though.
Thankfully, not only are we returning to horror movies, we're also returning to the world of William Peter Blatty.
Today on Every Day Horror, we're joined by Lewis "Linkara" Lovhaug to talk about the other Exorcist movie, The Exorcist III (1990). Don't worry about 1977's Exorcist II: The Heretic — almost nobody does.
But George C. Scott's take on Lieutenant Kinderman is a genuine inheritor to the original The Exorcist. In fact, Lovhaug says this is his favorite horror movie, period!
So why is The Exorcist III, sometimes titled Legion depending on who you ask, worth dipping back into Blatty's world? And why is the stuff that makes it so different from most possession stories the reason why it's so great? And which version is better: the theatrical cut or the director's?
Only one way to find out: listen!
