    It was great to see Ellen Burstyn return to make a sequel of a film she helped turn into a hit 50 years ago. She did a great job. Linda Blair's tiny cameo did nothing for the story, it was sad. Other than that, this one had nothing of the original, which terrified audiences for years after its release. The fact that Hollywood is still making sequels of movies released 50 years ago proves that they have been out of ideas for a long, long time.

    I found myself fast forwarding to the end of the film to see how the movie ended. The scare tactics used have been so overdone by other horror movies. I love the classic but this follow up to the original, didn't live up to what the 1973 movie presented and scared the audience with. The only cool moment was seeing Linda Blair's cameo at the end.

    This was a nice update to the series. I thought this was much better than the prior sequels.

    As for other people, I don't know how much they will like or dislike this story, but for me, this story was very fun for me. It tells the story of various events. Among the characters in the film, as the name suggests, they are shamans (believers) in both human belief in God. family confidence faith in unity Help and support each other. Suppress demons from all religions in each area and unite them as one. Unfortunately, this movie only tells the story of atheists. If they told the story of an atheist and the story of a believer simultaneously, the two families in the film I think the film could have been more powerful based on the title. But overall I really liked this story. Although this may not be to everyone's liking. But this story is very good for me.

    Honestly the movie is more hilarious than it is scary. Still doesn't hold anything to the one exorcists where they literally went to hell. If you have peacock subscription give it a go, but If you enjoy horrible acting and cheesy horror movies I'd rent it at red box or something.

    It was painful to watch. Literally one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Acting was horrible. Screenplay was horrible. They used the Exorcist name and franchise was absolutely criminal.

    The worst exorcist movie I have ever seen, and I've seen them all. A horrible mess of a movie. I'd put myself thru the displeasure of watching Exorcist 2 again before I'd lay eyes on this atrocity again.

    I am actually surprised that Exorcist: Believer has such a low rating. It was a new spin of an old tale and I think that the update was good. Others say that it is unoriginal…but, I think the writers did a good job integrating tactics that I have never seen in any exorcism movie. 🚩Spoilers ahead 🚩 The entire theme of the movie is bringing people with very different beliefs & religions together for the love and betterment of two little girls. It does a good job of showing how even when people have fundamentally opposing views of possession, as long as they all truly believe and they work together they can accomplish an exorcism (even without the support of the Catholic Church or a priest). I think there were a lot of good insights throughout the movie, such as: -Jesus going to hell for 3 days before the resurrection and the girls missing 3 days -the revealing of the main protagonists' dark pasts through the possessed -how the new possessions are connected to Regan & her mother -that when one is faced with choosing one life over another's there is never a "right choice" Overall I enjoyed the movie. The special effects were good enough and the storyline was decent. (Two things I usually think are lacking from current horror trends) I definitely think it was worth the time I spent watching it.

    Ugh…my expectations made this an even bigger disappointment. The original Exorcist and Exorcist 3 can't be matched apparently.
