THE EXORCIST III
1990, Morgan Creek, 110 min, USA, Dir: William Peter Blatty

THE EXORCIST novelist William Peter Blatty helms this shocker set 17 years after the original film. Police lieutenant William F. Kinderman (George C. Scott) is confronted by a string of murders in Georgetown that resemble the work of the Gemini serial killer, who had died years earlier. The investigation leads Kinderman to an old friend - Father Damien Karras (Jason Miller) – who may be possessed by a demon. “As a movie writer-director, William Peter Blatty is like David Lynch's good twin: He is eccentric, original, funny and daring, but he also has a sense of taste, pace and restraint - which is by way of saying that this is one of the shrewdest, wittiest, most intense and most satisfying horror movies ever made.” - Ralph Novak, People.


THE NINTH CONFIGURATION
TWINKLE, TWINKLE, KILLER KANE
