Trailers for Eli Roth’s THE LAST EXORCISM and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s JACK GOES BOATING

     July 9, 2010

If you had to pull two in film right now, low budget horror films and Philip Seymour Hoffman could be pretty accurate. That brings us to the trailers that just hit the web, Jack Goes Boating and The Last Exorcism. We’ll start with the latter. Obviously since the success of Paranormal Activity, studios are looking for the next great rural looking horror film, and in honesty I think The Last Exorcism (which was produced by Hostel director Eli Roth) could be it. The story has a priest agreeing to do an exorcism in the midst of a documentary crew, and everything (obviously) goes wrong. The trailer does bring some good horror and while it’s too early to tell, I think it’ll be a smash hit.

Jack Goes Boating on the other hand is Hoffman’s directorial debut which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.  The movie stars Hoffman, Amy Ryan, John Ortiz and Lola Glaudini, and looks fantastic. The premise involves Hoffman and Ryan falling in love after a blind date, and the issues that surround the two couple. The trailer has the most amazing use of music, with White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes kicking in near the end at just the right moments. It looks like a winning combination of great acting, good directing and the low key independent vibe that is trending in so many movies these days. The Last Exorcism comes out on August 27th, while Jack Goes Boating simply has a 2010 release date.  Hit the jump to check out both trailers.
