The Exorcist III ★★★★

Patrick Ewing plays the angel of death in this, so, I hope that is enough reason to justify why I rated this the same as the first Exorcist.

But seriously, this film is way better than it aught to be. It starts out like the horror version of Grumpy Old Men, and then just gets proper weird. The hospital is such a creepy location, and the writing in the film is very impressive. Brad Dourif's monologues are fantastic, and George C Scott going full on enraged is a thing of beauty. I also love that this film now validates the reason for the cop being in the first Exorcist, and so I'll gladly eat my writing on that one. Seriously, this film is all kinds of impressive.
