I haven’t seen The Last Exorcism, but it looks like the way to describe it is if The Exorcism had sex with Paranormal Activity and they made a horror baby. The premise is that at priest lets a documentary film crew witness his last exorcism. Watching this new TV spot for the film, you’ll know if you’re the audience for this kind of movie. Also, Eli Roth fans should get on board since he served as a producer on the film. And if you need one last bit of convincing that this flick may be worth a look, our own Bill Graham saw it at Comic-Con and said in his review (which we’ll post in full next Friday) that The Last Exorcism “is a horror flick that makes you think more than it will make you jump.”
Hit the jump to check out the new TV spot along with the official synopsis. The Last Exorcism opens on August 27th.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
