It’s time to kick off another series here on Talking Movies, and what better place to start than with demonic possession, ceiling crawlers, and Chris’s favorite actor, George C. Scott, shouting at healthcare professionals?
The first film in our survey of sequels that were released long after their hit predecessors is William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist III, released in 1990. That’s a long time ago in the sense that, back then, it was totally OK to smoke in a hospital (as many of the film’s characters do), but actually, it was the first entry in the Exorcist franchise in nearly a decade and a half. This one was Nick’s pick, but Chris and Brian have long sung its praises on the show — so, we thought it was time to talk about the movie in detail.
What else is on tap this week? We discuss the spate of mind-bending recent sci-fi movies, pile on the praise for Logan, and debate the difference between a dialogue-centric movie and one that simply refuses to “show, don’t tell.” Enjoy the show, drop us a line to share your thoughts on Exorcist III, and please, try not to misplace the head scissors.
