Hey everybody! Are you ready for another exorcism movie? You are?! Well lucky for you on March 1st, you’ll get another one! Hooray! Yes, the sequel to the 2010 guilty pleasure of mine, The Last Exorcism, will be arriving in theaters, but apparently void of everything that made the first one enjoyable. Seemingly gone is the first person/found footage feel which is a damn shame. And inserted instead is the standard look that every exorcism flick in the past 10 years has had. Sigh. Our possessed gal from the original, Nell (Ashley Bell), is back, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing considering her apparent over-acting and bugged out eyes in the trailers and tv spots. And speaking of the tv spots, The Last Exorcism Part II knows it’s going to suck. Want to know why?
Sorry. Couldn’t resist. But anyway, I noticed in the newest tv spots for this movie that the voiceover doesn’t even say that the title is The Last Exorcism Part II. It just says: The Last Exorcism. A fuck up or is there more at play here? On screen, it does say the correct title, but it’s obvious to me that because the voiceover is only saying The Last Exorcism, it clearly wants to trick you into thinking that you’re going to see the ‘sure to be superior’ original movie! Aha! Case closed. Unfortunately, I scoured Youtube for the tv spot I’ve been seeing, but to no avail. I’d like to think that the powers that be know I’m on to something and have made a point to delete every shred of evidence until the movie comes out now! So what’s the point here? Not quite sure because my brain hurts. But it seems the point is that you’re being duped into seeing a horrible exorcism movie thinking that you’re going to see a good one. Yeah, let’s go with that. And oh yeah, f*ck this movie.
