The Exorcist 2: The Heretic
The Exorcist 2: The Heretic ★★ 1977 (R)
Unnecessary sequel to the 1973 hit “The Exorcist” which featured extensive recutting by Boorman. After four years, Blair is still under psychiatric care, suffering from the effects of being possessed by the devil. Meanwhile, a priest investigates the first exorcist's work as he tries to help the head-spinning lass. Decent special effects. 118m/C VHS, DVD .
