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 »

The Last Exorcism Part II (2013)

BOMB (out of 4)

Shortly after the events in the first film, survivor Nell (Ashley Bell) tries to put her life back together as well as she can but she soon realizes that whatever was wrong with her is still there and coming back for more. THE LAST EXORCISM PART II is without question one of the worst horror films I've seen theatrically in a very long time. Year after year bad horror films are released but this here is at the very bottom of the barrel. After a quick look at the events in the previous film, we're introduced to an incredibly unscary pre-credit sequence, which pretty much tells you we're in for a dud. There's not a single thing that happens in this film that is scary. The majority of the attempted scares come from soft music playing before there's a loud bang with loud noises. This cliché is just so boring and so tiresome that you wish people would stop using it. Director Ed Gass-Donnelly deserves a lot of the blame because there's just nothing interesting here. The visuals are all rather boring and predictable. There's not a bit of atmosphere to be found anywhere. For a horror movie the lack of scares is a major disappointment but what makes them even worse is that they're all so poorly staged and delivered. The screenplay also deserves a lot of blame. As with the first film, this one here has a lot of character development early on. We see Nell struggling to get on with her life. We see her at work cleaning hotel rooms. We see her fall for a boy and we see her and her girlfriends going for walks. After a while you start to wonder if the filmmakers forgot they were making a horror film. I don't mind character development but none of the characters here are all that interesting and this includes Nell. Not for a second did I care what happened to her and I certainly didn't care to find out the secrets behind the first film. The performances aren't too bad but did you really come here for that? THE LAST EXORCISM PART II is a really horrid sequel to a decent movie. It's funny but the first movie came to a close with a horrid ending and then this film pretty much picked up that horrid and carried it to a new level. And don't even get me started on the ending here.
