Ready for a glimpse inside the evil? Universal Pictures has released a new featurette for The Exorcist: Believer titled A Look Inside, taking fans behind the scenes of a demonic dual possession.

In the film, since the death of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake, Victor Fielding (Leslie Odom, Jr.; One Night in MiamiHamilton) has raised their daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett; Good Girls) on his own. When Angela and her friend Katherine (newcomer Olivia Marcum), disappear in the woods and return with no memory of what happened to them, a chain of events is unleashed which forces Victor to confront the nadir of evil and seek out Chris MacNeil. 

For the first time since the 1973 film, Ellen Burstyn reprises her iconic role as Chris MacNeil, an actress who has been forever altered by what happened to her daughter Regan five decades before.

The film also stars Emmy winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s TaleHereditary) as Victor and Angela’s neighbor, as well as Jennifer Nettles (HarrietThe Righteous Gemstones) and Norbert Leo Butz (Fosse/Verdon, Bloodline) as Katherine’s parents.
