The Exorcist: Believer
October 2023

Exactly 50 years ago this fall, the most terrifying horror film in history landed on screens, shocking audiences around the world. Now, on Friday, October 13, a new chapter begins. From Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green, who shattered the status quo with their resurrection of the Halloween franchise, comes The Exorcist: Believer.

Since the death of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake 12 years ago, Victor Fielding (Tony winner and Oscar® nominee Leslie Odom, Jr.; One Night in Miami, Hamilton) has raised their daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett, Good Girls) on his own.

But when Angela and her friend Katherine (newcomer Olivia Marcum), disappear in the woods, only to return three days later with no memory of what happened to them, it unleashes a chain of events that will force Victor to confront the nadir of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witnessed anything like it before: Chris MacNeil.

For the first time since the 1973 film, Oscar® winner Ellen Burstyn reprises her iconic role as Chris MacNeil, an actress who has been forever altered by what happened to her daughter Regan five decades before.

The film also stars Emmy winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, Hereditary) as Victor and Angela’s neighbor, and Grammy winner Jennifer Nettles (Harriet, The Righteous Gemstones) and two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz (Fosse/Verdon, Bloodline) as the parents of Katherine, Angela’s friend.

When The Exorcist, based on the best-selling book by William Peter Blatty, was released, it changed the culture forever, obliterating box office records and earning 10 Academy Award® nominations, becoming the first horror film ever nominated for Best Picture.

The Exorcist: Believer is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay by Peter Sattler (Camp X-Ray) and David Gordon Green, from a story by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills), Danny McBride (Halloween trilogy) and David Gordon Green, based on characters created by William Peter Blatty.

The film is produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse and by David Robinson and James G. Robinson for Morgan Creek Entertainment.

The executive producers are Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Stephanie Allain, Ryan Turek and Atilla Yücer. Universal Pictures presents a Blumhouse/Morgan Creek Entertainment production in association with Rough House Pictures.

    The Exorcist was the greatest horror film ever made, it’s going to be incredibly difficult to match it’s raw power and shock value no matter how many jump scares are are added to the edit

    • Ba'al says:

      The original didn’t rely on jump scares, it was pure atmosphere and visuals that made it great. I’m nervous about this one as it it seems it’s going down the jump scare route

    • Alejandro Gomez says:

      It’s just been done so many times. People have to find a new formula and be innovative without trying to be innovative, that is what makes innovative movies.

    • Eli Q says:

      Also funny

    • Jurj Cluners says:

      No it isn’t

    • kiko el Argento says:

      Jumps scares has nothing to do with horror, in fact that stupid resource is used by stupid films, i hope you are being sarcastic or you are just 10yr

    One of the reasons why The Exorcist worked for me was that it was based on much older times. The tone of the film felt different and you could feel the evil lurking in the shadows even though the film didn’t show anything. It just gave out an eerie feeling all by itself. It’s worth noting that when The Exorcist was released, it was the first time the public had ever seen anything like it and therefore had such an impact on people. Similar to Star Wars, at the time it was the first of its kind and so it was extremely successful. This new film right away has that modern take which removes a layer of horror already. You don’t get the same feeling of horror when the girl walks into the church as you do when Regan walks into the living room and urinates herself. Not saying this film will suck, I’m simply making observations and opinions. Still I am very excited for this to come out and I hope its a good one!

    • LeanbackMac says:

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. I think even with modern cinematography they could have still pulled of that eerie tone of the original but this definitely feels more like a modern generic horror more than anything. I’m hoping it does something clever to be a decent movie but so far it’s not looking like it’ll be anywhere near as terrifying as the original

    • Krystofer Belknap says:

      I can already tell this film is going to ignore every note from Blatty and try to be a creature feature (again). These studios give money to anyone who shows up with a script written from a week’s worth of Adderall.

    • ACADIA says:

      in The Exorcist, the cameras were static most of the time as if you were frozen in fear with them and the visuals were grainy that added a lot to the creepy documentary snuff film vibe and then shaky cam when there is some tense shit happening. The Exorcist was unforgiving in terms of every beat of the story, direction, cinematography, themes, acting, writing. The Exorcist was a full force of filmmaking, but this shit is the same director of Halloween Kills.

    • Reborn8303 says:

      I would agree with you completely. The trailer feels a little too modern. Didn’t quite feel like what the original does except for that last scene was pretty creepy as F

    • Roberto Chaidez says:

      Spot on “the modern take”.
      (Saw it, ’74, as a very scared teen). This is Suburbiaxist, too many characters I could count, diluting the storyline, the scenes the girl walking down the aisle is the new M3gan dance, now spoiled and soiled. Not a slightest reference, (except the dog fight), that I could notice, about the significance of the original excavation scene and desolate Northern Iraq’s sinister feel. The now cliche Regan’s original horrendous makeup times 2.
      I say critics will zero in on the script and the new gen of viewers will enjoy it. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, it’s just about timing and era of having tasted the original recipe.

  3. Aniket Singh says:

    Some recent horror movies have fallen short on the scare factor. However, I must say, this one looks quite promising! The trailer alone gave me chills, and the storyline seems good. It’s refreshing to see a film that relies on atmospheric horror and psychological suspense rather than just cheap jump scares. Fingers crossed that it lives up to its potential and delivers the spine-tingling experience we’ve been craving. Can’t wait to see it! 🕷️

    It just isn’t the same without the genius of William Peter Blatty. Exorcist 1 and 3 are absolute masterpieces that simply cannot be surpassed by the modern style of directing and movie making. It was what Blatty DIDN’T show on screen – by arriving late and cutting early that was so damned scary. Watch them again with this in mind and you’ll see what I mean. With all that being said, this did send a bit of a chill up my spine, especially when Chris McNeil showed up on screen. I’ll be checking it out for sure. The way they only played a small part of the tubular bells theme from the original interspersed between cuts until the black and white flashes towards the end was very well done btw. But people just don’t get that the original movie is not really about possession, it’s about the loss of faith. That faith being chipped away at bit by bit, by small but constant evils, and the re-discovery of that FAITH when confronted by a terrible and nearly overwhelming evil.

    • Cherry Chanel says:

      I know exactly what you mean, Blatty and Friedkin were masters for this…. Let’s see if this film has the same magic

    • Gary Vassie says:

      E3 is an underrated masterpiece! Like you said. an extremely unsettling well written movie

    • Matthew Ennis says:

      I agree except the fact that Blatty didn’t show much in the first film because he didn’t direct it. Much like Stephen King, he gets almost all the praise for the adaption when in fact he was just the narrative storyteller. Exorcist 3 was great, but it paled in comparison to when he had a director willing to challenge his script pacing and certain themes he had in place. Similar to George Lucas. He’s not a great director in my mind, but his imagination is amazing when he collabs with strong directors and great screenwriters. Friedkin and Blatty apart were so so, but together were a match made in heaven. One catholic, one atheist.

    • sqq says:

      A única obra prima que eu conheço é o primeiro

    • KikBlava says:

      Absolutely Exorcist 3 is a perfect closure to the original film. It’s a shame that Exorcist 2 however is the worst hunk of shit I’ve ever seen.

  5. Ryan Leroux10 says:

    I’m glad this is a direct sequel and not a “remake” trailer looks very solid and promising. I’ll definitely be seeing this in the movies

  6. UnrealEntGaming says:

    I was a bit skeptical at first but now this movie looks extremely promising. Looking forward to this!

  7. Mark Jude Maata says:

    After 50 years, the best horror film returns.

  8. Nico says:

    My uncle showed me the original exorcist back when I was a kid. I’ve never been more traumatized from a movie before 😂 To me the greatest horror movie of all time. Hopefully this one holds up. But I’m not going in with high expectations.

    • SaucexBoyzz says:

      Seee that there is why people dont think it will beat it…it just has alot of nostalgia…nothing can beat good memories but I personally think this movie can beat the first one production wise

    • Nico says:

      @SaucexBoyzz It’s more so the story telling of the original that is scary. Sure things might look outdated but it’s still one of the creepiest movies even today. This new one might have better production, but let’s see how the story holds up. That’s what I’m skeptical about.

    • A_waff1es_0pinion says:

      It won’t be better but hopefully it will be good

    • Kevtb87 says:

      ​@SaucexBoyzzit’s not going to be better.
      The Exorcist is not just one of the best horror films ever, it’s a brilliant film full stop. Well directed. Filled with ideas. Perfect acting. Interesting characters struggling with real doubt and worry.

  9. Dalton Barnes says:

    What I love about this movie is Chris MacNiel’s determination to help other girls that went through the same hell as her daughter Regan.

    • er4drian says:

      She was powerless and useless fighting with the demon, do we all remember that Karras sacrificed his life ??

    • JB says:

      which is so unrealistic, especially at her age.

    • Jdsworld💕 says:

      Umm it’s not unrealistic a mother who went though what Chris daughter did she wouldn’t wanna see it happen to anyone else she ain’t even as old as Father Time from the original who died trying to give the exorcism

    • Dalton Barnes says:

      @Jdsworld💕 Thank you, my point exactly.

  10. WizardMonke says:

    I hope they keep the eeriness of the first one. Part of the reason the first was so scary wasn’t because of all the gross violent scenes, but because of the inexplicable eery moments like all of the nearly silent shots of Father Karat’s mother. Those shots were really discomforting, and played a large role in the overall horror of the first one.
