Synopsis


The Last Exorcism
Disillusioned charlatan Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) comes face to face with pure evil after recruiting a documentary film crew to capture the final exorcism of his career. For years, Reverend Marcus has taken advantage of the faithful and desperate. Now it's time for him to finally come clean. Just as Reverend Marcus prepares to shoot the film that will set the record straight, he receives an urgent letter from a desperate farmer. The devil has taken possession of his beloved daughter Nell (Ashley Bell), and Reverend Marcus is their last hope for salvation. Up to this point it's been all fun and games; now things are about to get serious. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    After reading about a new Best Buy "Blu Bin" reset (and price drop) I decided to drop in to pick up this film for my annual Halloween "31 Days of Horror Films" viewing list. I had seen the movie prior and enjoyed it, finding both well done and slightly unique within the found footage sub-genre. If you're reading this you've most likely seen the film already and want to know about the BD itself, so I'll move onto the disc itself. Package comes with both the BD and a DVD, and also includes a code for both Ultraviolet and iTunes. Film is presented in an aspect ration of 1.78:1 and features a DTS HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track. Picture quality is very good, faithfully reproducing what was seen in theaters. Audio is robust, being both subtle and bombastic where it needs to be. Bonus features are plentiful, though I can't comment on them as I haven't watched them. For informational purposes, the disc includes the following: Three Commentaries The Devil You Know: The Making of 'The Last Exorcism' (HD; 20:24) Real Stories of Exorcism: Interviews with Actual Victims and Participants (HD; 14:38) Actors' Audition Footage: Patrick Fabian (SD; 9:31), Ashley Bell (SD; 2:32), Caleb Landry Jones (SD; 1:40) and Louis Herthum (SD; 1:27). Prayer of Protection, a text based extra in English and Latin. If you're a fan of the film and are interested in adding it to your BD collection it's definitely worthy of the $5.99 purchase price. Recommended.

    Great movie for true horror fans!

    This was a great first person point of view exorcism film! I like the plot, mostly because there are a lot of hokey evangelic preachers out there that exploit people for money and dont even believe in what they are doing. In this film, one of those preachers gets a wake up call when he comes across the real thing. I personally have studied exorcisms both from a psychological and theological aspect. About 85% of them end up being things like epilepsy, schizophrenia, or some other scientifically explainable ailment. However, whether you choose to believe or not, there are that 15% that cannot be explained and fall under the category of paranormal/ demonic possession. If you like this movie, I highly recommend The Exorcist, Exorcism of Emily Rose, and The Rite! All of which are based on actual events!

    Modern creepiness with an old-fashioned twist.

    Daniel Stamm teams up with Eli Roth (in the producer's chair this time) to take on that most popular of modern movie horror styles, the found footage or pseudo-documentary flick. At least since 1999's BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, which was by no means the first of its kind, shaky, handheld footage has translated into scariness. Or at least, it's supposed to. With THE LAST EXORCISM, Stamm sets us up with a group making a documentary for and about a pastor who's been performing exorcisms since he was a teen. Clever, witty & atmospheric, this movie takes a poke at the subgenre of possession flicks and lends genuine elements of horror in the process. Borrowing heavily from the kind of material found in 70s classics like RACE WITH THE DEVIL, Stamm twists us at the very last moment.

    A little light on the action and long on the story, The Last Exorcism is still a pretty effective horror movie. While the trailer gives the impression that the movie will be entirely about a demon-possessed young lady on a rampage, it is equally about the final exploits of one of those hokey healing ministers who after years of performing fake exorcisms starts feeling guilty and decides to expose himself and the trade for what it is through a documentary.

    Alot better than I expected

    This move is shot like a mock documentary, kind of in the Blair Witch style, but gratefully, not like it was shot with a phone camera. Interesting plot starts off slow, then gets conflicted and interesting. While the ending might be a bit of a stretch for reality, it is entertainingly shocking. I recommend this one to everyone that is looking for a suspenseful movie.

    Needs to be seen with the sequel

    You really need to follow this up with the sequel as a complete viewing experience. On its own it is an ok film. With the sequel it becomes a more solid film as it brings the story full circle. I could see it moving on from Last Excorcism 2. But the two movies together complete the story.

    Barely Anything Happens

    I bought this on a whim, wanted an interesting horror film and possession films do freak me out. Barely anything happens in this film, which takes forever to happen. When something does happen, its weak. I can't believe this movie got two sequels.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
