All hell breaks lose on October 6 when Universal Pictures and Blumhouse unleash THE EXORCIST: BELIEVER. Directed by David Gordon Green (2018’s Halloween) from a script by Green and screenwriter  Peter Sattler.

THE EXORCIST: BELIEVER stars  Leslie Odom, Jr. as single father Victor Fielding, a man who has lost his faith after an emotionally insurmountable tragedy. When his young daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett), and her friend Katherine (Olivia O’Neill) go missing, only to return days later with no memory of what has happened to them, it’s soon apparent that the girls are no longer themselves.

Ellen Burstyn and Leslie Odom, Jr. face the evil of THE EXORCIST: BELIEVER.

Exhausting all rational explanations and solutions, Victor and Katherine’s parents (Jennifer Nettles and Norbert Leo Butz) turn to the one person who has faced this evil before, former actress Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn reprising her role from the 1973 original), whose daughter, Regan, underwent an exorcism that killed two priests 50 years before.
