The Exorcist III, 1990





The Exorcist III is a 1990s American supernatural religious horror film; about a detective investigating satanic murders in Georgetown, Washington, D.C.; the murders replicate motifs of a known serial killer; but the killer is dead and each crime scene has different fingerprints; against the director's wishes, the production studio imposed a demon exorcism finale and confusing title (a retcon film, it ignores the second film, continuing from the first)

Shockadelic rating: Interesting (but flawed)

Alternate title: The Exorcist 3
