Universal Pictures has just released a chilling new trailer for “The Exorcist Believer,” along with its scheduled release date of October 6.
In this disturbing preview, we delve into the mysterious disappearance of Angela and her friend Katherine, who go into a forest and return three days later without any memory of what happened. Soon, they begin to show signs of demonic possession, such as one of the young people who appears to be consuming the pages of a Bible. This disturbing incident sets off a series of events that lead Victor Fielding, Angela’s father, to confront evil incarnate. In the midst of terror and despair, he will seek the help of the only person who has witnessed something similar in the last 50 years: Chris MacNeil.
This film marks the first time Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn has portrayed her iconic role as Chris MacNeil since the original 1973 film, in which her daughter, Regan, was possessed by a demon, leaving an indelible mark on the actress.
In addition to Burstyn, the film features an all-star cast, including Ann Dowd as Victor and Angela’s neighbor, as well as Jennifer Nettles and Norbert Leo Butz as the parents of Angela’s friend Katherine.
“The Exorcist Believer” is directed by David Gordon Green, based on a story by Scott Teems, Danny McBride, and David Gordon Green and 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. Executive producers include Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Stephanie Allain, Ryan Turek, and Atilla Yücer.
Initially, the film was scheduled to premiere on Friday, October 13, an attractive date for horror fans. However, it decided to advance its release due to the premiere of Taylor Swift’s documentary called “The Eras Tour.”
