A police Lieutenant uncovers more than he bargained for as his investigation of a series of murders, which have all the hallmarks of the deceased Gemini serial killer, leads him to question the patients of a psychiatric ward.
A disclaimer at the beginning of the film explaining the difference in visual quality between some scenes reads as follows: "We are proud to present this brand new, alternate version of THE EXORCIST III. We conducted an exhaustive search through a pallet of film assets from the original shoot to re-create William Peter Blatty's intended vision based on his book LEGION. Unfortunately, that footage has been lost to time. To that end, we have turned to VHS tapes of the film's dailies to assemble the director's cut. However, even some of that footage was incomplete so scenes from the theatrical re-shoot were used to fill in the gaps. The director's cut is a composite of varying footage quality from the best available sources."

Patient X: Aah, you haven't any medical records for him, have you? No tedious fingerprints?
When "Nurse X" hits the police officer, we can see a cable hooked to him when he flies back against the wall.
These are the differences between the Theatrical Cut of "The Exorcist III" and the Director's Cut recently recovered and released by Shout! Factory:
