Blumhouse Productions is prepping The Exorcist: Believer, a direct sequel to the original 1973 horror classic The Exorcist, and here's the latest The Exorcist reboot updates. There's no real debate that The Exorcist, directed by William Friedkin, is one of the greatest horror movies ever made. It's one of only six horror movies nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards, and it's also one of the scariest ever made, even more so if the viewer is a Christian. Audiences of all backgrounds tend to love The Exorcist though, which holds up extremely well nearly 50 years after its release. Now, in 2023, the long-awaited official successor to The Exorcist, titled The Exorcist: Believer, is officially on the way.
