The Last Exorcism (PG-13)


Following in the shaky-cam footsteps of The Blair Witch Project, Daniel Stamm directs a poor script about evangelical con-man Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian). Marcus takes along a couple of documentarians to record his experiences and the trio road trip to rural Louisiana where a fundamentalist farmer believes his daughter Nell (Ashley Bell) is possessed. The Last Exorcism has all the appeal of a glorified student film.

More a sketch of an idea for a horror movie than a fully formed film, The Last Exorcism is a yawn-inducing attempt to cash in on a combination of exhausted genre tropes. Following in the shaky-cam, found-footage footsteps of The Blair Witch Project, Daniel Stamm directs an incompetent script about an evangelical con man, Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian). Cotton carries on his family’s well-established business of conducting exorcisms for illiterate backwoods types who traditionally respond well to the power of material-supported suggestion.
