The Last Exorcism Movie Review

The Last Exorcism tells a story about a young Reverend who has lost his faith, not from God but from body possessing demons.

When he arrives on the rural Louisiana farm of Louis Sweetzer (Louis Herthum), the Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) expects to perform just another routine “exorcism” on a disturbed religious fanatic. An earnest fundamentalist, Sweetzer has contacted the charismatic preacher as a last resort, certain his teenage daughter Nell (Ashley Bell) is possessed by a demon who must be exorcised before their terrifying ordeal ends in unimaginable tragedy.

Buckling under the weight of his conscience after years of parting desperate believers with their money, Cotton and his crew plan to film a confessionary documentary of this, his last exorcism. But upon arriving at the already blood drenched family farm, it is soon clear that nothing could have prepared him for the true evil he encounters there. Now, too late to turn back, Reverend Marcus’ own beliefs are shaken to the core when he and his crew must find a way to save Nell – and themselves – before it is too late.

This is what Paranormal Activity resurrected after The Blair Witch started more than a Decade ago. Thou, I am almost positive this film will NOT achieve the success of it’s predecessors. The main thing that separate this from the rest is the humor in the film, not over the top but very subtle as to give the film a sense of realism. Patrick Fabian, who by the way has appeared in many TV shows such as Veronica Mars, CSI, Saved by the Bell, Beverly Hills, 90210 and many more, did an outstanding job in portraying his character. Ashley Bell, who is also no stranger to TV series, was as creepy as they come. Just like Jennifer Campbell did for “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” Bell did for this one, somehow contorted her body to give us the illusion of what it would be like to be possessed by a demon.

All in all, this movie was ok. It was entertaining at most. I did find it to be creepy but not scary so do not expect to be sacred out socks. Very weird ending, leaving no answers but a small glimpse at why and how everything began.
