Chucky reacts to The Exorcist: Believer in new cross-promotional video, proving that he’s a big fan of possession.
The third season of Chucky premiered yesterday, and with The Exorcist: Believer hitting theaters tomorrow, how about a little horror icon cross-promotion? A new clip has emerged on Instagram, which finds everyone’s favourite Good Guy doll reacting to a thirty-second spot for the new Exorcist movie.
I love it, but unfortunately, the Chucky/Exorcist cross-promotion might be the best thing about the new Exorcist movie, as it has been receiving fairly negative reviews, including one from our own Chris Bumbray.
“It’s supposed to be the first entry in a new trilogy of Exorcist films, but the movie is so abysmal one shouldn’t hold out too much hope for a follow-up,” Bumbray wrote. “While it may have a strong box-office opening, word of mouth seems sure to be dire. The only thing that saves Exorcist: Believer from being called the worst Exorcist movie ever is the fact that this particular series has some very bad entries.” You can check out the rest of Bumbray’s review right here.
“Since the death of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake 12 years ago, Victor Fielding has raised their daughter on his own,” reads the official synopsis for The Exorcist: Believer. “But when Angela and her friend Katherine, disappear in the woods, only to return three days later with no memory of what happened to them, it unleashes a chain of events that will force Victor to confront the nadir of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witnessed anything like it before: Chris MacNeil.“
Universal and Blumhouse have already slated another sequel, The Exorcist: Deceiver, which is set to hit theaters on April 18, 2025. While it’s expected that Green will return to direct the sequel as well, nothing has been confirmed. Green has said that they’ve got “scripts, outlines, and things like that” for the second and third films, but he’s waiting to see how the first one is received before making any big decisions. You might have your answer. The Exorcist: Believer will hit theaters on October 6th.
As for Chucky, the third season of the series finds him setting his sets on… the White House. You can check out a review from our own Alex Maidy right here.
