CBS Films has released the first trailer for the horror sequel The Last Exorcism Part II. Again produced by Eli Roth, the story picks up where the 2010 first film left off, with Ashley Bell’s lead character unable to remember the events of the previous months. While she begins the process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her rears its ugly head once more. I never saw the first movie so I have nothing to compare this to, but the trailer doesn’t exactly look very scary, unless you consider ominous stares and goofy hand gestures frightening.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The Last Exorcism Part II opens on March 1st. [Update: CBS Films has provided us with a new image from the film, which is included after the jump.]

Here’s the official synopsis for The Last Exorcism Part II:
Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found terrified and alone in rural Louisiana. Back in the relative safety of New Orleans, Nell realizes that she can’t remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family. Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean her last exorcism was just the beginning.
