Review: The Last Exorcism Part II

If you thought The Last Exorcism was the end, you were wrong. The Last Exorcism Part II hit UK cinemas last week, and really captures how great horror films are these days.

The Last Exorcism Part II continues on from the back of its predecessor. Following the story of Nell (Ashley Bell), a young girl who is trying to build her life back up after our last installment. Unfortunately for Nell, the evil force that once possessed her has other ideas.

Along with the lacking script, we are handed a very slow paced film with no character development. We are introduced to a few girls at Nell’s new home who apparently have no memorable names, and a love interest who took acting lessons from a cardboard box. All of which rely on loud noises and barking dogs to create the jump-out-of-your-seat moments that most horror film fans crave.

Credit where it’s due, Bell does us all a solid with her acting. She portrays a quiet, slightly awkward and once possessed girl very well. Although getting up close and personal to a wall because you can hear a couple having some “fun” in the next room is a tad much.

To sum up

The Last Exorcism was enough, we didn’t need a Part II. It isn’t even so bad that it’s good. Your time would be better spent watching paint dry.
