The only similarity these three movies have are their titles.

The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen spawned a dreadful sequel, the challengingly-named Exorcist II: The Heretic.

And the third movie, spookily enough, was entitled Exorcist III - what a coincidence!

That's where the similiarities begin and end. The first movie deservedly retains a certain classic status. Sequels two and three belong in the celluloid rubbish bin of failed movies. They simply don't measure up, and I can't imagine anyone wanting to own them.

Individual titles reviews
REVIEW: The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen
"The scariest movie of all time? Hardly, but The Exorcist is still a good piece of well-crafted and acted storytelling which lifts it above the pure-schlock class."
- Anthony Clarke

REVIEW: The Exorcist II: The Heretic
"A horror movie? Give me a break - this feeble effort might give die-hard viewers a few laughs, as we watch some great actors die on the job."
- Anthony Clarke

REVIEW: The Exorcist III
"17 years after The Exorcist came this supernatural detective tale, a blatant attempt to cash in on the franchise with a movie which carries only a passing connection to the original."
- Anthony Clarke


Neither of the sequels can be bought by themselves; they are available only as part of the three-movie box set.

However, the first movie, The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen is available as a stand-alone. I'd buy that title, and rent the box set if you're determined to view the sequels.

    "One excellent horror flick spawned two atrocious brain-numbing sequels. Here are all three - an ounce of gold packaged with a pound of cinematic dross."

    by Anthony Clarke

    A Fistful of Dollars (Sony)
    "An essential Spaghetti-Western, given deluxe treatment by MGM."

    "Falls short of being a classic, but it gives us Bill Murray, so it just has to be seen."

    Creature Comforts - Series 1: Vol. 2
    "Delicious comic idea given the right-royal Aardman treatment. "

    The General (Buster Keaton)
    "Forget that this is a silent movie. This 1927 classic has more expression, movement and sheer beauty (along with its comedy) than 99 per cent of films made today."

    Dr Who - Claws Of Axos
    "Is it Worzel Gummidge? No, it's Jon Pertwee in his other great television role, as the good Doctor battling all kinds of evil on our behalf."
