The Exorcist franchise, like the supernatural entities the movies are about, is hard to shake off. The sixth film in the franchise is on the way later this year, and we saw the first images at CinemaCon 2023.
In The Exorcist: Believer, two girls are possessed. After dropping them off at school, they never come home. They finally meet in the forest after three days, thinking that they were gone for more than three days. hours. It quickly becomes clear that the girls are possessed. One of them walks into a church during communion, drenched in what is blood or grape juice, pretty much the same thing, yelling “The body and the blood” in a demonic voice.
Ellen Burstyn returns from the original to reprise her role as Chris MacNeil, the mother of the original possession victim, Regan. One of the girls’ parents, played by Leslie Odom Jr., comes to her for help. He confronts one of her possessed girls and tells her, “We’ve met before.” Does that mean that Pazuzu is back?
We have many shots of the demon controlling and hurting the girls, including what appears to be inverted crosses carved on their foreheads.
