Why possess one pubescent girl when you can possess two? That’s the question at the heart of the new trailer for The Exorcist: Believer, director David Gordon Green’s reboot of the venerable horror franchise. Two girls disappear one day after school. Three days later, they are found and they come back a little, well, different. This trailer shows the appearance of Ellen Burstyn, reprising her role from the original film. Sharp-eyed fans will recognize ways that this new trailer echoes the trailer from the 1973 film. Callbacks abound in this preview! See how many you can recognize.
The Exorcist: Believer from Universal Pictures opens in theaters October 13, 2023.
