The Last Exorcism trailer has demons and freaky neck stuff

05.25.2010

The Eli Roth-produced THE LAST EXORCISM is obviously aiming for some CLOVERFIELD / BLAIR WITCH / PARANORMAL ACTIVITY success, given the fake-documentary style and cast of relative unknowns. Will it be chilling and original enough to hit the sweet spot for horror fans? Or just give people the creeps with its apparent animosity for the neck region?

The 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.

Not bad looking, I suppose; a bit more cinematically-driven than PARANORMAL ACTIVITY or BLAIR WITCH, but it might work. I dunno. I'll wait for other opinions first.

Done to Death

I think that mock-documentaries have been done to death, and unless SOMEONE can come up with an original idea, I don't think this will fly.....btw...I love Eli's movies....the Thanksgiving faux trailer was the shit! (go ahead....start giving me the thumbs down now.)

This looks freaky.

I must admit that this looks promising. Not to mention we need another decent fake-documentary style type of flick that really goes for it but has a little bit of substance, besides leslie vernon and Spinal Tap. Cloverfield would've been it but while done well, i still can't get behind the decisions in that movie. (You go back into a city being destroyed by an unknown monster to save your EX girlfriend, risking your friends lives including your own? Really?) Rec and Quarantine, while also done

Rec and Quarantine, while also done well, we've seen enough of that story. So i think this will really get everyone going. Truly creepy indeed.

I don't think eli roth is the type of guy to just toss his name on just anything, so I think it has potential.

Also , i like the leslie vernon love, underrated flick.

First off, grotesque makeup does not make a movie scary. Secondly the movie still looks stupid. I am also proud to admit I hated cloverfield, and PA but enjoyed TBWP.

I see nothing scary here. No grotesque makeup either? Rather light on that front by the looks? 1973's "The Exorcist" was genuinely shocking and frightening. All elements in the trailer look all too familiar.

Scary as hell

I definitely thought this trailer would be stupid. But man, did it give me goosebumps! I will certainly be keeping an eye on this film. Also, the best mockumentary I have seen (and IMO possibly ever made) is FORGOTTEN SILVER.

Good enough

I'll likely watch it. Favorite fake documentary is This is Spinal Tap for sure.

It looks like it might be pretty good. I'm willing to give it a chance.

Looks great and I have enough trust in Roth that this will be good. I was a huge fan of Paranormal Activity and this looks like the same kind of fun and scare.

Completely surprised

The trailer definitely gave me some new found hope towards the film. It's taking itself seriously. The cinematography makes the film look like a cross between Blair Witch, Paranormal Activity, and The Exorcist; sounds like an ideal combination.

Totally agree.

Love the hallway scene with her standing at the end of it. Reminds me of REC in a good way.

Not impressed at all, frankly. Lame gimmick, the acting looks bland, the imagery all tries to invoke familiarity in Exorcist fans, with the illusion that it's much more extreme. Nah, I'm not interested.
