The Last Exorcism

Opened August 27, 2010 | Runtime:1 hr. 28 min.

PG-13
Disturbing violent content, thematic material, terror and some sexual references

When he arrives on the rural Louisiana farm of Louis Sweetzer, the Reverend Cotton Marcus 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 is possessed by a demon who must be exorcized 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.

Thank Fandango for giving me a free ticket to this one because it definitely was NOT worth paying full movie price to see. The worst part was the abundance of teenagers in the movie that apparently were not taught how to behave inside a movie theater. Not only did I have to deal with a bad movie, I also had to deal with talking, laughing, people walking around, and other adults telling them to sit down and shut up.
