Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Alternate Versions

When originally released theatrically in the UK and US, the BBFC and MPAA made cuts to secure a '15' rating in the UK and a 'PG-13' rating in the US. These cuts totaled around 44 seconds and were a couple of innocuous changes. The cuts are to a scene where Neil slits his throat and Chris tries to stem the blood loss. All cuts were waived later in 2013 for the DVD and Blu-Ray releases in both the UK and US with '15' (uncut) and unrated ratings applied accordingly. See more »

You'll be missing out if you read the negative reviews
1 August 2013 | by bennett_123See all my 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
