Believe or not, The Exorcist: Believer digital release date is today—meaning you can now buy or rent The Exorcist: Believer on digital platforms like Amazon Prime, Vudu, and Apple TV—after opening in theaters just two weeks earlier. The price may vary depending on which platform you use to purchase the film, but on Amazon, the film cost $19.99 to rent, and $29.99 to buy. The film will also still be playing in theaters.
Intended as a direct sequel to William Friedrick’s 1973 horror masterpiece, The Exorcist, this new movie is directed by David Gordon Green, who also helmed the recent sequel/reboot trilogy of the Halloween films with Jamie Lee Curtis. The Exorcist: Believer sees the return of Ellen Burstyn as Chris MacNeil, who must help out a new pair of parents (played by Leslie Odom Jr. and Tracey Graves) dealing with a possessed child. After all, Chris has been there and done that!
Even though the film was not well-liked by critics, it still scraped together a decent $107.6 million at the worldwide box office, so far. So is it surprising that Universal pushed the film to digital after just two weeks? Not really. Although two weeks is on the short side for a theatrical run, most studio films these days are only exclusive to theaters for 45 days or less, and Universal has had a particularly quick turnaround time. The last big Universal movie, Strays, hit digital after two weeks as well. And no doubt Universal hopes to capitalize on the many people watching spooky movies at home this month, before Halloween.
If nothing else, it will be a thrill for horror fans to see Burstyn back in the role. Read on to find out what you need to know about The Exorcist: Believer digital release date, and when to expect to see The Exorcist: Believer streaming on Peacock.
