The third film in The Exorcist series.

Based upon the novel Legion.

The Exorcist III is a 1990 horror movie written and directed by William Peter Blatty, and starring George C. Scott, Nicol Williamson, Ed Flanders, Brad Dourif and Jason Miller. It was the first Exorcist film in the series produced by Morgan Creek, and the only Exorcist film distributed by 20th Century Fox instead of Warner Bros.

The film is based on Blatty's novel Legion, the sequel to his original novel The Exorcist. The story takes place in Georgetown, fifteen years after the events of The Exorcist (although it makes no reference to the events of Exorcist II: The Heretic) in which a young girl named Regan MacNeil was possessed by a demon.
