The Last Exorcism Part II in theatres March 1
CBS Films releases sequel to the interesting but ultimately muddled 2010 film. Ed Gass Donnelly takes over the director’s chair from Daniel Stamm, working from a script he re-wrote from a draft by Damien Chazell, based on characters created by Huck Botko & Andrew Gurland. Ashley Bell returns as Nell Sweetzer, the phony possessed girl who turned out to be really possessed. Also in the cast are Spencer Treat Clark, Andrew Sensenig, Judd Lormand, Julia Garner, and Muse Watson. Eli Roth, of course, is back on as producer.
We imagine there is a pretty funny quip to be made out the title (if the 2010 film was the “last” exorcism, how could there be a sequel?), but it’s a bit too obvious to be more than a bad joke. Hopefully, THE LAST EXORCISM PART II can fix or at least clear up some of the bad residue from its predecessor.
