And this is saying a lot, considering that I made it all the way through part 2! I think I'm done with this series, and will just consider The Exorcist to be a solo movie from now on.
And just so we're clear, this was The Exorcist III, not Halloween III
Sorry, but I half to disagree with you on this one: I outright love Exorcist III. The film isn't so much a horror film as it is a somber character study of one man's troubled faith. The interaction between Scott and Dourif is fantastic, and it is a shame that some of Dourif's work was lost at the forced inclusion of Jason Miller and the Exorcist elemen with Father Morning. I've said it before, and I will say it again, but I hope that a proper directors cut that restores the film to Blatty's intentions happens one day.
On another note, Watched The Book of Blood, which I am working on a full review of along side Candyman for my set of horror reviews for next month. Short version: not all that great.
