This is one of the great all-time fell-on-its butt movies.  I especially like when the doc is having a heart attack and rather than call an ambulance or anything, they have Linda Blair hooked up to the electroshock skullcap and have her overpower the demon with sheer sincerity.   Thumbup

I thought we were in for more of the same when EIII opens to George C. Scott angrily lecturing his detectives about Shakespeare, but they soon got their oars in the water and I can easily see why this was Jeff Dahmer's all-time favorite movie.

This was just a plain bore. You could tell that they were rewriting the script as they were going along with such improvisation and bad editing. With the exception of James Earl Jones (who is epic in anything), Linda Blair was about the only good thing just because she was rip-her-clothes off hot. Even then objectively her acting was far better when she was just a kid in the orignal, but damn she was a stunning babe in this.

I heard the orignal unaltered script was a lot better. It didn't have the syndication tool as a plot device and it had more coherent stabilization as far as dialog and storytelling goes..
