Plot – Spoilers:
The Theatrical Cut of Exorcist III left writer and director William Peter Blatty deeply dissatisfied. As explained during the intro here, a few years back, this Director’s Cut was released, pieced together from various sources. But the piecemeal nature leaves large sections of the film, of a poor VHS quality with odd aspect ratios.

This cut however is believed to reflect Blatty’s original vision for the film. Personally, I prefer this, without the physical presence of Father Karras, so Brad Dourif could hog all of that cell to himself.

Random Trivia:
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest gave Exorcist II, Nurse Ratched, and this one, Bibbit.

This version was nothing special. The way it’s sounds the directors cut you would think there’s so much more but nah. They don’t even show the ending fight in the cell like the original does. Regardless it’s still a great movie.

Hmm

I preferred the original theater cut.
It seems more intense.. this is good don’t get me wrong.. but the original use of Father Karras for us old ones was a nice piece of theatre.

Still a worthy watch for any classic horror film affeciando

There’s a scene they’re still missing on this directors cut, its the original opening scene where kinderman is at the morgue where father karras body is lying dead after the fall down the steps, after he leaves the room the heart monitor starts showing signs of life in karras, if you wanna see it its on youtube
