Apparently the first “The Last Exorcism” did enough gangbuster business that the sequel is already here. Or, on its way, at least. Or “here”-ish enough that the film has released its first official image. The sequel boasts producer credits by Eli Roth (if, you know, that’s something worth boasting about to you kids out there) and original star Ashley Bell, with Ed Gass-Donnelly co-writing and directing the script.
Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found alone and terrified in the woods. Back in the relative safety of civilization, 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.
Also starring Spencer Treat Clark, Judd Lormand, Julia Garner, Muse Watson, E. Roger Mitchell, Cristina Franco, David Jensen, and Raeden Greer.
CBS Films will release the horror sequel on March 1, 2013.
