Have You Seen The New “Exorcist” Concept Trailer? Afraid Of the Film Or The Idea Of It Being Made?

A New Take On “The Exorcist?”

I missed this when it was originally released, but there’s a new take on this classic horror film coming next year – and they made a “proof of concept” video to show us what they have planned!

Here is how the concept trailer is described on YouTube:

The Exorcist 2023 Trailer CONCEPT for Blumhouse and David Gordon Green’s “The Exorcist” reboot trilogy starring Ellen Burstyn, Leslie Odom Jr., Ann Dowd.

“The Exorcist” sequel will continue from William Friedkin’s classic horror movie and follow the father of a demon possessed child who seeks help from Chris MacNeil, mother of possessed Regan MacNeil originally played by Linda Blair in The Exorcist 1973. The new exorcist movie opens October 13, 2023.

Here is what they are calling the “concept” trailer:

Hmmmm….

A new trilogy based on the original book. That means a return to the same story, told PERFECTLY in 1973 by Director William Friedkin.

“The Exorcist” is one of my top ten favorite films of all time – arguably the greatest single horror film ever made…so we will be getting a remake – in fact, a trilogy….why?

Will the new filmmakers re-visit some of these classic, iconic moments?

Will there be more of this?

As shocking as the “split pea” scene is, it works perfectly for a reason.

The original film begins by setting up the characters – then creating moments of unease as the viewer realizes something is not right – and you follow along as an increasingly desperate Mother tries to “heal” her child – so that when the last half of the film unleashes shock after shock after shock, it is rooted in our knowledge and compassion for the characters who we know and care for…

Yes, this is a young girl who has been taken over – but by what? If you haven’t seen “The Exorcist”, you are missing out on a masterclass in storytelling…see more details about the remastered blu-ray with tons of great extras by clicking here:

I’m not sure I can ever give a new reboot a chance…remember some of the other horrible remakes?

“Black Christmas” is a terrific slice of horror – with a horrible remake a few years ago…if you haven’t seen the original, click here for more:

Here’s another classic horror film that you should see:

“Train To Busan” is one of the best zombie films of all time – for the same reason as “The Exorcist” – by the time the shocks come fast and furious, you know and care about the characters – see the trailer and more here:

  2. It took me years to be brave enough to watch the first. The book was good. I think I’ll take a pass on #2.

  4. Okay, so they can throw modern technology at this remake, but that’s hardly the point. In 1973, it was a genuine shock! Since then, we have had better horror films perhaps, but you have to put The Exorcist into the context of its time. They just don’t seem to get that, and churn out disappointing remakes on a cinematic conveyor belt because they have no new ideas.
    (‘Carrie’ is one of the best examples of a completely hopeless remake.)
    I absolutely REFUSE to watch this, John. They should do something inventive, not just re-hash someone else’s talent.
    Best wishes, Pete.
