Last Exorcism: Part II, The (15)

Last Exorcism: Part II, The (15)

Horror, Thriller

As Nell Sweetzer tries to build a new life after the events of the first movie, the evil force that once possessed her returns with an even more horrific plan.

The critical consensus

An exorcise in futility.

**(*)(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 02/06/2013

A stylistic departure from the shaky aesthetic of the first film. Sadly, most of its nervy shocks and creeping sense of unease go the same way.

**(*)(*)(*)James White, Empire Online, 03/06/2013

It's like being stalked, except this time you can't blame Facebook. The frights, such as they are, come just when you most expect them.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 06/06/2013

It's competently made, but pointless.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/06/2013

Sadly, this promising idea is dropped almost as soon as it’s been introduced, and the movie bellyflops abysmally in its second half.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 06/06/2013

It all builds towards another sequel-ready ending, so expect this nonsensically titled series to run and run.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 06/06/2013

It's dreary, formulaic stuff that even manages to make a Mardi Gras parade look dull.

Philip French, The Observer, 09/06/2013

The box office success of mediocre films like The Devil Inside and The Possession shows that this demonic possession genre is still of interest to audiences. But writer/director Ed Gass-Donnelly’s film offers little ironic edge or incisive imagery, pushing far too hard with an unpleasant emphasis on sexuality, and ending up as a by-the-numbers rehash of the original film’s weakest elements.
