Exorcist II: The Heretic

Synopsis: 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.

by that experience.

I think the exorcism

made the problem worse.

You must know that three people died.

Regan's guilt was so great,

she repressed everything.

I'm sorry, Father.

I can't let you question her.

The shock of recall

could result in self-punishment.

I couldn't rule out suicide.

You have a heavy responsibility:

the care of her soul.

The care of her mind and her body

is my responsibility, Father.

You realize what you're up against,

don't you?

- What am I up against, Father?

- Evil.

Mental illness.

That's what we're up against here.

or the casualties of

a diseased society. Evil is not...

Evil is a spiritual being,

alive and living.

Perverted and perverting, weaving

its way into the very fabric of life.

- Sorry to disturb you.

- What is it?

I've changed my mind. I'd like

to try that machine after all.

- Fine.

- Could we try it now?

I'm sorry. I won't intrude any longer.

It's okay, Father.

You can stay if you'd like.

Regan, this is Father Lamont.

Regan MacNeil.

- Hello.

- How do you do?

well, we can do it

tomorrow then, Regan. Okay?

Father, maybe you can help me.

- All right, Regan?

- Good.

These experiments confirm that thought

can be transmitted across distances.

- Here he is, causing a spoon to bend.

- Sharon.

- Not on a stage...

- Look, I can do it.

...but under iaboratory controis

and observed by skepticai scientists.

- It's easy.

- Good God, Regan.

...they seem to defy naturai iaws.

How can that be?

oh, look, you fool.

You believe everything!

oh, wait, wait.

...but is mereiy an iiiusion:

a projection of the mind.

These are EEG biofeedback electrodes.

They pick up any brain frequency.

They're integrated

with these strobes...

...to bring two altered states

into synchronization.

- Are you ready, Regan?
