Suggests that Blatty had seen and loved many films without ever really paying attention to how they worked.

Exorcist III wields a mighty sword of scares and contemplation, drilling into those primal areas of nail-chewing tension...This film is a humdinger.

A good chunk of The Exorcist III is taken up by a series of sit-down chats; close-ups of Scott's ugly mug are the only half-frightening thing on the screen.

Seriously scary in a few spots, but dry and overly verbose for the most part.
| Original Score: 2/5

For my money, it's everything The Exorcist should have been, but never quite was.

Amazing! A sequel that stands on its own and still creeps me out at times.

If only Blatty would be given the director's chair more often, we would have a lot more truly terrifying movies to choose from.

Written and directed by William Peter Blatty, author of the original Exorcist. So, while it's not quite as chilling as the first story, It is at least a quality sequel

Better than part two, and almost scary in one part.

An underrated, very scary film, although William Peter Blatty is better with frightening moments and images than he is at creating a narrative that matters or makes any real good sense.
| Original Score: 3/5

It would probably be much more highly-regarded were it not for the pedigree it has to live up to.
| Original Score: 3/5

Not as good as The Exorcist but a masterpiece compared to The Heretic
