The next chapter in The Last Exorcism series, aptly titled The Last Exorcism Part II, hits the screen this Friday (March 1st) and ShockTillYouDrop.com caught up with producer Eli Roth to preview the film. They grilled him on that title (wasn’t the last film the “last” exorcism?) and got him to comment on the sequel’s decision to eschew the “found footage” format, the strength of Ashley Bell and more. You can check out the interview by clicking here.
Continuing where the first film left off, Part II finds teenage Nell Sweetzer (Bell) is found dirty and terrified in the woods having just escaped a demon ritual in which a cult helped her give birth to a demon baby. She is moved into Davreaux a girls halfway house in New Orleans, where she will try to put her life back together with the help of the therapist, Frank Merle. She even begins to date a boy named Chris and starts a job at a local hotel. But something doesnt feel right to Nell. She is being sought after by the demon who possessed her in the first film.
