I haven’t seen The Exorcist: Believer but, and I’m in no hurry to get round to it. I didn’t like Halloween Kills or Halloween Ends, and the damaging reactions to this film haven’t made me keen to offer David Gordon Green horror one other likelihood. Especially since I’m not a giant fan of exorcism motion pictures (with some exceptions, like The Exorcist) to start with.
