Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.
After moving with her mother to a small town, a teenager finds that an accident happened in the house at the end of the street. Things get more complicated when she befriends a boy who was the only survivor of the accident.
Seventeen year-old Nell Margaret Sweetzer is found completely insane when trying to explain her possession by the demon called Abalam. After medical and psychological treatment, she is sent to the Deveraux transition house in New Orleans managed by Frank Merle, who helps her to start a new life. She finds a job as a hotel housekeeper, befriends her new roommates, and develops a crush on her coworker, Chris. Soon, Nell comes to realize that she is haunted by people from her cult... and by the same evil force that once possessed her. When Nell meets Miss Cecile, she tells Nell that she has been following her since the hospital. Further, she discloses that she belongs to the sect Order of The Right Hand, and that they can protect her from the evil in an attempt to divert the prophecy of an apocalypse. Will Nell accept help, and be protected from the extremely powerful, evil force Abalam -- Or will she come to accept... herself? Written by

When Nell is cleaning hotel rooms, a picture of an owl with long legs can be seen on the wall. The picture is that of a demon called Stolas, as depicted in a 19th century French demonology text called "Dictionnaire Infernal". See more »
When Nell wakes up and Gwen is gone, her alarm clock is flashing making it seem her encounter during the night caused it to lose power. In the next shot, it is a longer view of the room, and the alarm clock is completely off. See more »

You'll be missing out if you read the negative reviews
I'm really confused as to why this has received such bad user reviews, i'll admit the title of this film kinda contradicts itself but i honestly believe this was an attempt to redeem the crappiness of the first movie, and it succeeded! Afterall "Evil Dead" had a sequel because the first one was rubbish and thats one of the best movies out there.. This isn't your typical possession film where you watch your generic 19 year old girl speak in a monotone demonic voice and you don't really care what happens to her because you've seen it a hundred time before. The girl in this you will actually feel sorry for, she is being taunted by the demon though everything thats actually good in her life and it's a shame, coupled with the fact she is a really good actress makes it a decent film, it tries to inspire emotion through flashbacks which is a really nice touch too. It will also become clear why it's called "The Last Exorcism" too! These negative reviews obviously come from people who had the whole script written in their heads before they pressed play, and it's a shame that their disappointment may affect others that just want to watch a movie and be surprised! Anyway it's 80 minutes and it's a pretty decent film, give it a shot if you have the time
