Movie Info

Recently widowed psychiatrist Cal Jamison (Martin Sheen) has just moved back to New York City with his young son, Chris (Harley Cross), in an attempt to start over after his wife's horrific accidental death. Cal takes an assignment helping the police with the investigation of a cult-like and bizarre ritualistic double murder. As Cal gets closer to the truth, he realizes that he and those close to him may be the target of supernatural and deadly forces, and that the enemy is closer than he knows.

Audience Reviews for The Believers

  • Sep 30, 2012
    What starts out like a family drama soon enters serial thriller territory and finally ends up being a supernatural horror film. The greatest trick this film pulls is that those aspects flow into each other really well and make for a very entertaining, sometimes disturbing and ultimately exciting film. That's also thanks to the acting, particularly Sheen makes for a convincing police psychologist and father, whose son is threatened by an voodoo cult. Even though the film is clearly a child of its time (the 80s), the shocks and twists still work and the wonderfully unpleasant final punchline stays with you for quite a while. Very good!

    Voodoo cult thrillerr. Somewhat interesting, but I'm not a big Martin Sheen fan, but he does make it creepier.

    Exceptionally well-made, deadly serious horror film. Martin Sheen delivers an honest and genuine performance. The facial blemish scene is scary as hell.
