Scary new ‘Exorcist: Believer’ teaser brings Ellen Burstyn back to the original franchise 50 years later.

The Oscar-winner made her onscreen return in the film’s first trailer on Wednesday, reprising her iconic role of Chris MacNeil, an actress who is forever haunted by her daughter Regan’s (Linda Blair) possession as seen in the original movie.

 “Have you ever seen anything like this?” Leslie Odom Jr. – who stars in “Believer” as a widower trying to save his possessed daughter (Lidya Jewett) and her friend (Olivia Marcum) – asks “Handmaid’s Tale” actor Ann Dowd in the trailer.

The chilling trailer features Jewett, along with Marcum, afflicted with the same devilish glares that Blair made infamous in the franchise’s horrifying first installment.

Jennifer Nettles and Norbert Leo Butz co-star in “Believer” alongside Jewett, Burstyn, Dowd, Marcum and Odom Jr.

The original film was a groundbreaking cinematic achievement in the horror genre, going on to earn 10 Oscar nominations, marking the first time a horror film had ever been nominated for best picture.
