I liked The Last Exorcism. It’s a good indicator of how much a filmmaker can get away with while still being able to slap a PG-13 rating on it. It has a great twist and ending, all centered around a strong performance by Ashley Bell.
Some dismissed it, but the film had this sense of dread that was prevalent throughout. It all built up to a finale that was pretty damn creepy and, as I said previously, pushed the boundaries of the PG-13 rating. Although it still fell into that silly trap of “Cameraman is dead, so movie is over.”
Now we have our first look at the sequel in the form of a fresh trailer. I’m digging the usage of Roman numerals. Not enough sequels use those anymore.
