After he recreated the Halloween trilogy, David Gordon Green now gives us The Exorcist: Believer. Universal Pictures have just unleashed the first UK Trailer as terror returns, is that ‘terror’ Pazuzu or the filmmaker?
That maybe a brutal reaction, if we go by how the newer Halloween films went from good to awful we should be concerned. Questions maybe asked, do we really need two more films (The Exorcist: Deceiver coming in 2025) especially when the previous sequels were atrocious. It seems the filmmaker with Blumhouse will take a similar approach forgetting about the original sequels.
The film stars Leslie Odom, Jr., Lidya Jewett, Olivia Marcum, Ann Dowd, Jennifer Nettles, Norbert Leo Butz. The film will also see the return of Chris MacNeil played by Ellen Burstyn.
Odom Jr. is Victor Fielding has been living with his daughter Angela since the death of his wife. When Angela and her friend go missing in the woods only to return days later with no memory, to unleashing a chain of events. Forcing Victor to face evil in its face but help from a familiar face.
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.
The Exorcist: Believer will be in UK, Irish and U.S Cinemas from 13th October.
