CBS Films unveiled the one-sheet for The Last Exorcism Part II and it’s a clever spin on what Lionsgate created for The Last Exorcism. There’s too much familiarity for my own taste, however, look closer and…yes, the bent over body and shadow form a “2.”
The new film, directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly and opening March 1st, continues where the first film left off. Teenage Nell Sweetzer (returning cast member Ashley Bell) is found dirty and terrified in the woods having just escaped a demon ritual in which a cult helped her give birth to a demon baby.
Confused and scared, Nell is examined by doctors but she doesn’t remember much about the previous few months except that as a result of everything, her family is now dead. She is moved into Davreaux – a girls’ halfway house in New Orleans, where she will try to put her life back together with the help of the therapist, Frank Merle. She even begins to date a boy named Chris and starts a job at a local hotel. But something doesn’t feel right to Nell. She is being sought after by the demon who possessed her in the first Last Exorcism. It wants Nell, but in a different way than before…
