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 »

Just TERRIBLE. Unnecessary sequel, pitiful writing and poor execution.
1 March 2013 | by ripleyclone8See all my reviews

The Last Exorcism Part II is simply put a terrible movie. I absolutely loved the first film but Part II is like the Blair Witch Project 2 of the original Blair Witch Project. Its unnecessary, it doesn't accomplish anything and it doesn't push the story forward. All this film was made for was to show you how Nell tries to recover after the events of the first film. THATS IT! The scares are few and far between the story is just downright dumb from the beginning and you never really feel for any of the characters from the get go. I wouldn't recommend seeing this film even for the fans of the first one. Besides a daring opening sequence, a few moments of suspense and interesting character moments this movie is a complete fluke. The Last Exorcism accomplished a sense of true horror and dread. You actually felt for the characters. Part II I see more of as a Dark Comedy. You can't even take this movie seriously at times. It seems the only reason this sequel was made was because the first film made 100 million at the box office. Thats it!

3 out of 10 stars. This movie was just bad. Simple as that!
