Is The Exorcist: Believer streaming? How to watch the new horror movie

This new terror revisits the story of one of the best horror movies ever made. Here, we explore how to watch The Exorcist Believer, and if it's streaming.

Is The Exorcist: Believer streaming? In 1973, the world of horror changed with the release of The Exorcist. It was an adaptation of what has long since been considered the scariest book of all time. Astonishingly, the movie reached the same bar — audiences allegedly fainted, vomited, and left the theater feeling as though they’d seen the Devil himself.

The Exorcist: Believer is the unexpected follow-up of the aforementioned classic. Set decades later, it aims to follow in the footsteps of one of the best movies ever made and examine the story of two sets of parents who are desperate to save their children from a demon’s grasp. Although the general consensus seems to be that it does not live up to the best horror movie of all time, you may want to watch it and judge for yourself.

Will the terrifying tale be available on the best streaming services? Read ahead to find out how to watch The Exorcist: Believer, and keep your Rosary close.

Where can I watch The Exorcist: Believer?

The Exorcist: Believer was released on Friday, October 6, 2023, and the only way to watch it for now is to head to theaters.

If that date is confusing to you, it’s because the original The Exorcist: Believer release date was October 13, but was pushed forward (unlike most new movies, which have been catapulted into the future). You have Taylor Swift to thank for that since the studio didn’t want to compete with her concert movie. We wouldn’t either, and will be in attendance.

Is The Exorcist: Believer streaming?

The Exorcist: Believer is theatrical for now, so you’ll have to wait a while before it streams. It’ll likely end up on Peacock since Universal worked with the streamer to obtain distribution rights for the movie.

It’s likely to end up on platforms by the end of November or the beginning of December since Universal typically runs their new releases for as little as 17 days before sending them to streaming. It can be longer than this, depending on performance. December is our latest bet, for now.

Is The Exorcist: Believer on Netflix?

The Exorcist: Believer isn’t currently on Netflix, and likely won’t end up there for a while, unfortunately.

As mentioned, it’s more likely that The Exorcist: Believer will end up on Peacock first. That means, if Netflix wants the rights, they’ll have to wait their turn. If you’re looking for some scares on that platform, you can check out our list of the best Netflix horror movies!

Is The Exorcist: Believer on Disney Plus?

Disney Plus likely won’t be getting the rights for The Exorcist: Believer, so we probably won’t ever see it on there.

Disney Plus doesn’t really go for horror movies unless they’re acquired properties. It doesn’t have the license for the original, meaning that it wouldn’t really make sense for the platform to host the movie.

Is The Exorcist: Believer on Amazon Prime Video?

We think The Exorcist: Believer will likely end up on Amazon Prime Video to rent or buy by the end of 2023, but not to stream as part of a subscription.

Right now, you can buy the original movie for $7.99. The new movie will likely come to digital before it becomes available as part of a streaming subscription, so you may wish to head to Amazon first. You can sign up for the streaming service here to find out what’s there at no extra cost, or you can also stream the original on Max.

Is The Exorcist: Believer on Blu-ray?

There’s no confirmation on whether The Exorcist: Believer will be available on Blu-ray, but we assume it will have a physical release in some shape or form.

Universal’s big movies almost always get discs, so we think it’s likely that the studio will want to put out a physical release at some point. There are likely plenty of behind-the-scenes stories to share behind the sequel of one of the most influential horrors of all time, so it’d be a shame if they skipped out on this.
