“I don’t think there’s anything more terrifying.”
The Exorcist: Believer–the first sequel to the 1973 horror classic–lands in theaters Friday, Oct. 6, and a new featurette has dropped that puts the spotlight squarely on the two young girls in the center of the frightening action. Check out the video on this page.
This Blumhouse/Universal sequel is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Scott Teems, Danny McBride and Peter Sattler.
While discussing his film and the possibility of future sequels with comicbook.com, Green said that “if the world embraces what we’re making here, we’ll keep going. I’m excited that if this movie is well received and we can keep them cranking, we have some new avenues to explore.”
The Exorcist: Believer reportedly is the first of three planned sequels, with the next one–The Exorcist: Deceiver–set for a theatrical release April 18, 2025.
In the film–set decades after the original–Victor Fielding (Leslie Odom Jr.) is raising his daughter Angela (Lidya Jewett) alone after his wife’s death, but things go south quickly when Angela and her friend Katherine (Olivia Marcum) become lost in the nearby woods.
The girls return three days later–with no memory of what happened to them–and Fielding finds himself embroiled in a series of events that force him to “confront evil–and find the one person who has seen something like this before: Chris MacNeil (the returning Ellen Burstyn).”
