With its sequel “The Exorcist: Believer,” a film directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Blumhouse, set to hit theaters on October 13th, promising to revive the chills we felt almost 50 years ago with the iconic horror film released in 1973.
In this new installment, the plot revolves around Victor Fielding, portrayed by the talented Leslie Odom Jr., a man in charge of taking care of Angela, played by Lidya Jewett. Everything changes when Angela and her friend Katherine, portrayed by Olivia Marcum, disappear in a forest for three days and return with no memory of what happened. From that moment on, a series of terrifying events unfold, leading Victor to confront the worst of the unknown.
Desperate to find answers and deal with the situation, Victor decides to seek help from Chris MacNeil, portrayed by the renowned actress Ellen Burstyn, who reprises her iconic role from the original film. Chris, whose acting career was interrupted by the supernatural events that occurred with her daughter Regan five decades ago, decided to dedicate herself to studying the rituals of exorcism behind possession phenomena.

When the film premiered in 1973, directed by William Friedkin and based on the best-selling novel by William Peter Blatty, it changed cinematic culture forever. It became a box office phenomenon, receiving 10 Academy Award nominations and even becoming the first horror film to be nominated for Best Picture, a monumental achievement for the horror genre.
