THE EXORCIST III: COLLECTOR'S EDITION 1

THE EXORCIST III REVIEWED

“The Exorcist III” was the first Exorcist movie I ever watched. Naturally, I was confused as Hell. Later on, I’d learn about director William Peter Blatty’s issues with WB and how the tone of the film was altered. I don’t recommend anyone start with this movie before seeing “The Exorcist”. So much of the film hinges on having a knowledge of Father Karras, Lt. Kinderman and what happened to Regan. Brad Dourif does amazing work as the Gemini Killer, but so much of his character has been lost due to constant cuts and reshuffling of the plot.

The Director’s Cut on the second disc helps to make the film work for me as an adult. While trimming a movie is never ideal, it cuts back on the lingering shots and beats the Ninth Configuration aspects of the nuthouse scenes. It doesn’t save the film from becoming a prolonged mess of an author not being willing to kill his darlings. Still, it gives an audience the chance to see a great work emerge. I’d recommend it.
