I went to see Warm Bodies this weekend and saw the trailer for The Last Exorcism II for the first time. The word that comes to mind when describing my feelings is underwhelmed. I mildly enjoyed the first film, but this sequel looks as though it should've been a VOD and straight-to-DVD release.
Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found terrified and alone in rural Louisiana. Back in the relative safety of New Orleans, Nell realizes that she can't remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family. Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean her last exorcism was just the beginning.
I hate to judge a movie by its trailer or TV spot, but this just looks bad. Watch the TV Spot below to get a taste of how underwhelming the movie looks.
