The Last Exorcism Review
Synopsis:A troubled evangelical minister agrees to let his last exorcism be filmed by a documentary crew.
The Last Exorcism (2010) is directed by Daniel Stamm (13 Sins (2014)) as a shaky cam POV style demon possession movie. Not a horror film that won over the majority of movie fans but did show a different style of filmmaking. This film had an estimated budget of $1.8 million but grossed about $40.99 million at the box office making it successful in that regard.
The Last Exorcism is about an evangelical minister taking his final exorcism while recorded. The minister Cotton Marcus played by Patrick Fabian (General Hospital (1963), Better Call Saul (2015-2016)) quickly discovers that he may have bitten off way too much with the demon possession of Nell Sweetzer played by Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism Part II (2013), Carnage Park (2016), The Day (2011)).
Watching this film at the time, it came out was a great and different change from a lot of the played out methods. Adding the POV style aspect may have hurt it in some ways but also made it stand out a bit. Having Ashley Bell able to contort her body naturally helped to draw the viewers attention either in a small way or in a gross way, still memorable. Expand the movies you have watched and give The Last Exorcism a try if you have not done so already.
