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.

- Yes.

we're going to do this

just the way I showed you.

Now, I want you to relax your arms.

Now, I want you to concentrate

on the strobe light.

Deeply relax.

Just let yourself go

and look at the light.

Now, I want you to relax

and make your tone go deeper.

Listen to your tone.


Deeper, Regan.

can you hear me, Regan?


when you hear the alarm buzzer,

you will wake up and feel fine...

...but you will remember nothing

that happened. Do you understand?


very good. Now, do you remember

your room in washington?


- Can you see your room?

- No.

Then I want you to go deeper.

Go deeper into your memory

until you can see your room.

Make your tone go deeper,

and you will see it.


Deeper, Regan. Deeper.

can you see it now?


I want to come down and be with you.

Do you remember how to help me?


Good. Bring me down to where you are.

You and I will obey the commands

that Liz and Father Lamont give us.

Do you understand?


I'm going to turn my light on now.

And you will help me

bring my tone down to yours.

can you hear me, Gene?


Relax, then.

And let yourself come down

deeper and deeper...

...to meet my tone.





- Doctor, can you see Regan's room?

- Yes.

Regan, do you remember the time

Father Merrin came up to you?


Regan, you will now respond

to Father Lamont.

- Regan?

- Yes?

That time in the room...

...try and remember Father Merrin

just before he died.

- We're alone.

- Is his heart strong? Resolved?

He is praying.

- Is he in pain?

- Yes.

- Is he casting out the unclean spirit?

- He is praying.

And you, Regan. What are you doing?

Dr. Tuskin?


Gene, wake up!

- What's wrong with Gene?

- Her heart, it's fibrillating!
