Verdict: Another Forgettable Exorcism Movie
Story: The Last Exorcism Part II starts by filling us in on the first Last Exorcism because most of us forgot or didn’t see it. Starting in the main film we learn what happened to Nell (Bell) as she is given a chance to recover at a young women’s halfway house as she learns to deal with her past.
Nell stats to make new friends with the other girls there with Gwen (Garner) taking in almost like a sister, but it isn’t long until Nell starts getting her horrifying visions return. Nell must battle the evil that has returned to her life that is also targeting her new friends.
Thoughts on The Last Exorcism Part II
Characters/Performance – Nell is an innocent young woman looking to understand the world once again after what happened to her, but she can’t escape what happened in her past as she must fight the evil within her. Gwen is the one girl at the home that offers friendship but this film sadly only surrounds Nell not the supporting characters.
Performance wise, Ashely Bell is fine in the leading role but you feel she doesn’t quite reach the levels needed for the horror involved. The rest of the performances are all fine without being anything special.
Story – You know the story is confusing when it is called Part II and Last Exorcism, how can it be a second last one, shouldn’t the first have been called the second from last Exorcism? Anyway, this story isn’t the most appealing as we are left to go through the same old situation girl becomes victim needs curing, yawn.
Horror/Thriller – The horror is all predictable as we know what we are going to get, noise, something moving in the background and well scary voices, nothing shocks in anyway here.
Settings – The settings give us nothing to go on, we end up going through the same locations a drug addict would have gone through to recover.
Final Thoughts – This is just another exorcism movie that you will forget sooner rather than later.
Overall: Been here seen this.
