The Last Exorcism plans for a sequel, makes a liar of its title

Aug. 23, 2011by:

THE LAST EXORCISM is about to join the FINAL DESTINATION and FINAL FANTASY club of series that claim to be penultimate, but end up having a countless number of sequels.

Despite what its title may imply, there will be another exorcism, as the original film apparently did well enough to warrant another go-round.

If you're like me, you probably had to pause and think about which exorcism movie this was. With THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE, THE RITE and others, it's easy to get mixed up. This one was the handi-cam style project about a charlatan preacher who finds himself in the middle of a real life demonic possession. Or so he thinks. There were more back and forth plot twists in that film it made me nauseous.

I thought the style was cool, and the BLAIR WITCH/REC/PARANORMAL ACTIVITY "real" aspect of it was decently well done, but naturally it didn't seem open for a sequel. No word on how exactly they're going to do one, and all we know is that relative newcomer Damien Chazelle has been brought in to write a new script. More details on the film as they emerge.

Well as long as they don't perform any exorcisms in the sequel, then it's still a correct title. And with the way the first one ended, I don't think there necessarily has to be any more exorcisms. Could be a nice little homage to Rosemary's Baby if they play their cards right.

"Last" refers to the most recent, not to the final one. "Last time I went to the store" =/= "The final time I went to the store." Capisce?

All these Exorcism movies are the same. They follow the same formula. Innocent victim gets possed at least 1 family member disbelieving its a demon until the end. The last exorcism was ok but i hate that exorcism movies are coming out at least once a year now. how Unoriginal!

Last Exorcism was OK, but really, give it up Hollywood. Making an exorcism movie is a futile as making a shark movie. Exorcist and Jaws are nearly flawless and anything that comes after will always live in their shadows.

How about we all make a pact to not see (or atleast not pay to see) these worthless sequels? Hell, maybe Jesus will come back

I don't mean to be the buzz kill but I hated the first one, not looking forward to this at all.

I thought the film was pretty damn good. Just wasn't a big fan of the ending. By the way, it was Cotton Marcus' last exorcism, not the last exorcism ever. You can definitely make a sequel to the film. Obviously, people in that film universe would want to know what happened to Cotton and his crew when they didn't come back.

penultimate adj
1. next to the last
n
2. anything that is next to the last, esp a penult
not hating just you used the wrong word. Penultimate indicates there is a follow up. Empire is the Penultimate (and best) Star Wars movie
