Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) Dr. Gene Tuskin works with troubled children, perhaps none more troubled than Regan MacNeil, who suffers from bad dreams and repressed memories. 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.

More Movie Taglines:
  • It's four years later...what does she remember?
Movie Quote(s):
  • Father Lamont: I've flown this route before. It was on the wings of a demon.
  • Father Lamont: Pazuzu, king of the evil spirits of the air, help me to find Kokumo!
  • Father Lamont: When the wings have brushed you... is there no hope once the wings have brushed you?
  • Pazuzu: No! Once the wings have brushed you, you're mine forever!
  • Kokumo: If Pazuzu comes for you I will spit a leopard.
Movie Trivia:
  • During the filming, director John Boorman contracted San Joaquin Valley Fever (a respiratory fungal infection), which caused filming to be suspended for five weeks. It was determined to be caused from the dust used in the African sets from the film.
  • Linda Blair refused to be subjected to the makeup she wore in the first film. In flashback scenes, the possessed Regan was played by a double.
  • In one scene (lasting eight minutes and ten seconds), the camera cuts to close-ups of Lamont in which he's neither moving nor speaking, twenty six times (not counting genuine reaction shots).
  • Jon Voight originally agreed to play Father Lamont before dropping out over concerns with the screenplay. David Carradine and Jack Nicholson were considered to play the part: the studio rejected Carradine due to an ongoing dispute with him over the Kung Fu TV series, while Nicholson's salary demands were deemed too high.
  • Christopher Walken was also considered to play Father Lamont, but the studio management was opposed to his casting.
