Terror Trivia: The Exorcist III (1990)

William Peter Blatty made the film based on his novel "Legion," which was published in 1983. Morgan Creek decided to call it "Exorcist: Legion" even though the screenplay and novel featured no exorcisms whatsoever. After principal photography was completed, the misleading nature of the title was noticed, and the producers determined that additional scenes needed to be written and then added into the film in order to made it a more recognizable sequel of The Exorcist. The last third of the movie had to be entirely redone, with the insertion of a new character, Father Morning, and of an exorcism scene that cost nearly 4 million dollars.
