    Exorcist II: The Heretic

    ★★★

    As a sequel to The Exorcist? - Yes, it's a dismal failure.
    Viewed as a stand-alone, loopy, mystical/sci-fi/horror hybrid dragged along by a manic Richard Burton performance? - It's actually quite fun.
    Somehow I missed out on(avoided...) seeing this until very recently, but finally got my opportunity to view it on the big screen as part of the BFI's John Boorman retrospective.
    Seen in a Boorman context alongside the likes of 'Excalibur' and 'Zardoz', it made a lot more sense…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Is there a more arresting movie moment than when a malevolent, hermaphroditic, alien-Christ played by Richard Lynch invites an aghast Tony Lo Bianco to fuck the oozing mutant vagina embedded in his abdomen?

    I love you Larry Cohen.
