The Exorcist: Mike Flanagan’s Devilishly Delightful Direction Unveils Fresh Horrors!

  • Mike Flanagan will write, direct, and produce a new take on The Exorcist franchise
  • The project will not be a sequel to The Exorcist: Believer, which received poor reviews
  • Flanagan’s vision for the franchise is described as fresh, bold, and terrifying

Grab your crucifix and holy water because The Exorcist franchise is getting a makeover with Mike Flanagan at the helm! If you thought the last installment, The Exorcist: Believer, was a bit of a letdown, you’re not alone. Critics weren’t too kind to it either. But fear not, dear horror fan, because Flanagan is here to save the day with his “radical new take” on the iconic horror series.

So, what do we know about this new project? Well, first off, it’s not going to be a sequel to The Exorcist: Believer (thank the horror movie gods for that). Flanagan is teaming up with Blumhouse, the production company behind some of the best horror films in recent years, to bring us something fresh, bold, and terrifying within the Exorcist universe. And if you’re a fan of Flanagan’s work, you know you’re in for a treat.

In a statement, Flanagan expressed his excitement about the project, saying, “The Exorcist is one of the reasons I became a filmmaker, and it is an honor to have the chance to try something fresh, bold and terrifying within its universe.” He also mentioned how thrilled he is to be working with Blumhouse again, as they have been responsible for some of his favorite pieces of work. Sounds like a match made in horror movie heaven!

Jason Blum, the man behind Blumhouse, also chimed in, praising Flanagan’s unique vision and voice in the horror genre. He can’t wait for audiences to experience what Flanagan has in store for The Exorcist franchise. And let’s not forget David Robinson, Chairman and CEO of Morgan Creek, who holds the rights to the franchise. He’s just as excited to be working with Flanagan and the Blumhouse team on this new chapter in The Exorcist saga.

Now, let’s talk about The Exorcist: Believer. It was supposed to kick off a new trilogy, with The Exorcist: Deceiver already in the works for a 2025 release. However, the lackluster performance of Believer forced the studio to reassess their plans. Critics and audiences alike were not impressed with the film, with some calling it an abysmal attempt to relaunch the franchise. Ouch.

But fear not, horror fans, because Flanagan is here to steer the ship back on course. With his track record of delivering spine-chilling horror with a touch of psychological depth, he’s the perfect choice to breathe new life into The Exorcist franchise. Get ready to be scared out of your wits in ways you never imagined.

So, grab your popcorn, turn off the lights, and prepare yourself for a wild ride with The Exorcist’s “radical new take.” Mike Flanagan is about to unleash hell (literally) in the best way possible. Are you ready for what’s to come? Share your excitement with fellow horror enthusiasts and let’s get spooked together!
