The Last Exorcism, a story about a possessed girl, will open in theaters nationwide Friday, August 27, 2010.
The Last Exorcism 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.
The cast of The Last Exorcism consists of Patrick Fabian, Ashley Bell, Iris Bahr, Louis Herthum and Caleb Landry Jones, and is directed by Daniel Stamm.
The Last Exorcism received fairly good ratings.
“It’s not just the hand-held camera that will shake you up. The Last Exorcism gives you good reason to be very afraid of the dark.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“The Last Exorcism makes first-rate use of religious doubt and religious extremism to concoct a novel horror-thriller clever enough to seduce unbelievers while satisfying the bloodlust of its congregation/fanbase.” -John Anderson, Variety
