The memories she represses are of the time she was possessed by a demon. Dr. Tuskin’s invention, a device that hypnotizes two persons and links their minds together, reveals that the demon, named Pazuzu, still lurks within her. It is desperate to emerge again and wreak havoc. Meanwhile, Father Philip Lamont is ordered by his cardinal to investigate the death of Father Merrin, the priest who died while performing an exorcism on Regan. Father Lamont undertakes his task reluctantly. He feels unworthy of his assignment. He also feels that Evil is literally an entity and that this entity is winning the battle over Good. His investigation takes him to Africa where he locates another recipient of Merrin’s exorcising and learns something fascinating and terrible about locusts.
Plot: Bizarre nightmares plague Regan MacNeil four years after her possession and exorcism. Has the demon returned? And if so, can the combined faith and knowledge of a Vatican investigator and a hypnotic research specialist free her from its grasp?

Interesting plot and design
I love this movie. No its not Citizen Kane, but not every film has to be. I thought it was an interesting concept and a good attempt to answer questions from the first film that Blatty doesn’t really answer, mainly why was Regan possessed. I loved the cinematography and the music is great. Boorman is noted for not being an actors director. But his focus on theme and mood really worked well. The look of the film was great. This movie is not the worst film ever made. That is such a cliché and overly used. I like to view the film on its own and not as a sequel. Even Blatty’s own attempt at a sequel had its own life and had a slight connection to the first film. I think its time that this film was given its due and given some merit for its originality.
What was that about?!
Starting from what would usually be the end of a review, I’m giving this film 9/10. The reason? Because it is hilariously awful. I love a bad sequel, and this is the ultimate in bad sequels. Still, nothing was really ever going to be able to top the original Exorcist film.
The Heretic isn’t so much a movie, as a collection of random scenes and dialogue that neither make much sense or move the story on in any logical direction.
The early scenes in Dr Tuskin’s office are just bizarre, and surely if you’re visiting a psychiatrist you’d want to be consulted privately? Not so in Regan’s case – she gets to be consulted in what appears to be a collection of telephone boxes with an assortment of 70s brown furniture and some special needs children about the place.
Linda Blair seems to have lost all the acting ability she had in the first film and delivers her lines as though she was making elevator floor announcements.
Richard Burton, no words can describe his ‘acting’ ‘style’ in this film. You just have to sit and watch. No piece of scenery gets away without some of his teeth marks in it. My favourite Richard Burton moments do happen in Dr Tuskin’s office. His reaction, or lack of it when he’s connected to Regan’s mind using the flashing-box-memory-swapper- thing/strobe light is something to behold. And you will get to behold it because the camera pans to his lack of reaction a lot.
Moving on, other scenes include flying locusts – there are a LOT of flying locusts in this film. There’s also a lot of ‘African’ landscape. Or, African landscape recreated badly on a Warner Bros sound stage… For some reason the sky is also permanently yellow in this ‘Africa’ we get to see.
Along with ‘Africa’, we also get to see the Georgetown house from the original movie, but again not actually on location, but recreated on a Warner Bros sound stage. Some of the scenes in the ‘Georgetown’ house do actually make a bit of sense. Unfortunately all sense soon goes out of the window once Linda Blair starts trying to be all sexy in lingerie whilst apparently possessed again. Only this time the possession doesn’t come with injuries and disfigurements all over Regan’s body, it comes with a vaguely-evil-but-not-that-evil cartoon-demonic voice.
Sharon, Chris Macneil’s live-in assistant from the first movie is back, but rather than being the young, likable, and concerned woman she was, she seems to have become some weird nun-like character who does very little except look concerned and come to an abrupt end that again doesn’t make much sense.
I have purposely made my review slightly mixed up and confusing, because the film itself is like this. I’ve sat through it a few of times, usually laughing/cringing at the Razzie-worthy performances of all the cast and the hilarious dialogue they deliver, and even after several viewings I really have no idea what actually happens. Everything moves at a really uneven pace – either really slowly, or blink-and-you-miss-it quickly. If you’ve ever seen the trailer for this film, yes the one with the ‘Disco’ soundtrack then you’ve already seen the best bits of the film, and would probably have as much idea about the plot of the full movie as I do now.
To sum up – what was that all about?!
