Have you made your way to the theaters to see the new horror flick The Exorcist: Believer? If not, maybe you’re waiting for it to hit a streaming service. Is it streaming yet? Is Netflix the streaming home? Find out where you can watch The Exorcist: Believer below.

When The Exorcist: Believer was announced in 2020, horror movie buffs everywhere were eagerly anticipating its release. It’s the sequel to the box-office hit and Academy Award-winning film The Exorcist, which came out in 1973. The original movie is also regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever made by many people, so of course, this meant that horror fans had high expectations for the sequel.

Well, it’s officially out, and the reviews aren’t looking too good. Helmed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he co-wrote with Peter Sattler, the film follows two best friends who disappear into the woods and return three days later with no recollection of what happened to them. But it’s soon revealed that they’re in a synchronized possession. Determined to save his daughter, the distressed father of one of the girls reaches out to the only person alive who’s experienced what he’s going through and would understand: Chris MacNeil.

Emmy Award-nominated actor Leslie Odom Jr. stars in the leading role as Victor Fielding, a photographer and desperate father of one of the possessed girls. Young rising actresses Lidya Jewett and Olivia O’Neill star as the two possessed girls, Angela and Katherine. Additionally, Jennifer Nettles, Norbert Leo Butz, Ann Dowd, and many others are in the film. Lastly, Oscar-winner Ellen Burstyn reprises her role as Chris MacNeil from the 1973 film in this movie, and Linda Blair as Regan MacNeil.
