The Last Exorcism Part II 2.0 stars

Movie poster


Things were going so well for Nell (Ashley Bell) in the group home where she was deposited after all the mishigas that went down in the first Last Exorcism. But the demon Abalam refuses to allow Nell to move on. For 75 minutes, Ed Gass-Donnelly's film chugs along with the requisite amount of shrieking violin strings, schlock-shocks, and radio transmissions that only our heroine can hear. Then suddenly, the proceedings veer in the direction of nutsy. Neither priest nor fundamentalist was invited to the casting-out party. This time it's Calder (David Jensen), a corporate suit, who performs the cleansing. SPOILER ALERT: I've seen just about every filmed exorcism there is, and to the best of my knowledge, this is the first time the exorcist takes the "kill or cure" approach. But while the ending didn't entirely justify the means, it was engaging enough that I didn't leave the theater angry.
