The Exorcist III is heading to 4K UHD from Scream Factory this March. The terrifying movie from the original creator of The Exorcist is his preferred director’s cut. If you pre-order directly from Scream Factory, you’ll get an exclusive rolled poster featuring the original theatrical artwork while supplies last. If you’ve never seen The Exorcist III, it’s based on the novel Legion by William Peter Blatty. It stars George C. Scott, Ed Flanders, Brad Dourif, Jason Miller, Nicol Williamson, and Scott Wilson. Here’s the synopsis for The Exorcist III.

For more than fifteen years, Police Lieutenant Kinderman (George C. Scott) has been haunted by the death of his friend Father Damien Karras. Now, on the 15th anniversary of the exorcism that claimed the priest’s life, Kinderman’s world is once again shattered when a boy is found decapitated and savagely crucified. It’s just the beginning of a nightmare series of bizarre religious murders.

When a psychopath claiming to be the infamous Gemini Killer admits responsibility for all the murders, Kinderman is confronted with a horrifying truth that he cannot begin to explain … the man does know intimate details that only the true killer could possibly know. There’s only one problem … the Gemini Killer died in the electric chair fifteen years ago!
