Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Unfortunately, no one involved seems to have bent over backwards to make the movie either original or even all that scary.
Rotten: Creepy atmospherics don't compensate for the lack of genuine scares in this unimpressive follow-up.
Rotten: When the creators of The Last Exorcism Part II swapped pseudo-verite realism for psychological realism, they made it a lot harder to take their franchise seriously ...
Rotten: This matter-of-fact, brick-by-brick approach to building scares and tension probably won't work for audiences who just want to scream a lot, so Gass-Donnelly undercuts it all by haphazardly tossing in jump scares of the cheapest, most predictable kind.
A TRULY ABYSMAL HORROR SEQUEL IN EVERY WAY
Unlike most people who saw "The Last Exorcism" three years ago, I didn't hate it. Sure, it was far from a masterpiece, but it managed to put the tired found-footage gimmick to surprisingly effective use. At the very least, it was a moderately entertaining low-budget horror film with a few clever thrills thrown in, which is more than I can say about its majorly inferior and entirely unnecessary sequel, which immediately continues right where the first film left off. Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found alive with no recollection of what became of her family. Terrified and all alone, she's forced to begin the difficult process of starting a new life by entering a group home for troubled youths. But the evil force that once possessed her is back yet again, this time with other horrific plans which could only mean that her last exorcism was just the beginning. Unlike the previous installment, this flick isn't shot like a pseudo-documentary. It's just a regular horror film with no style or originality of its own. If that wasn't bad enough, the plot focuses almost all of its attention on trying to make Nell an engaging character, which is a near-impossible task, since she looks like she's perpetually on the verge of having a panic attack in nearly every scene. Not to mention the fact that the flick doesn't even bother giving her a personality. The whole time, we watch this horribly bland protagonist as she infrequently gets haunted by the evil demon in her sleep, in broad daylight, and eventually everywhere she goes. It all leads up to a disappointment of a finale that's more stupid than scary. All in all, "The Last Exorcism Part II" is a waste of a sequel that lacks any real scares or interesting characters. Unless you enjoy watching bad horror films that only get worse and worse as they go along, it might be for the best if you skipped this train wreck and rented a much better horror movie. Let's just hope that this "Last Exorcism" actually ends up being the last. We seriously don't need a "Part III."
I loved the first "The Last Exorcism" it was really good. So, when the second one came out I was excited to see it. The previews made it seem awesome. I went and saw it in the theatre but was super disappointed. The movie had some unique parts that you don't see in movies, but those rare moments didn't make the movie worth it. The killing scenes were stupid and the end was the worst. The people who did the second movie had good ideas, but they could not excute them at all.
I actually enjoyed the first and second movie it's more of a suspenseful/thriller than a horror/thriller do not pick movies based upon other people's review though these other reviews I read made me not want to see the movie but I thinks it's worth watching there are always people that don't enjoy a movie and think their judgement and opinion is the same as everyone else's when in reality it's not thank you.
