The Last Exorcism Part II
The Last Exorcism Part II: So: The Last Exorcism is a not-bad little horror movie, notable primarily for an excellent lead performance by Patrick Fabian as a fake preacher who encounters a possibly-real demonic possession and for a pretty good (though ultimately somewhat boilerplate and reductive) use of the found-footage technique. Naturally, The Last Exorcism Part II jettisons Fabian (whose fate isn't definite, but he did participate in one of those stock and-then-something-comes-at-the-camera-and-it-all-goes-black found-footage endings) and the found-footage angle, so it can go about its business as, presumably, yet another possession/exorcism movie with bendy bodies and screaming and stuff. But it'll all be worth it when its target audience boos whenever it decides to cut to black!
