Lionsgate has picked up the U.S. distribution rights for the Eli Roth-produced horror thriller The Last Exorcism (formally titled "Cotton").

Helmed by German director Daniel Stamm, the cinema-verite style pic stars Patrick Fabian as a troubled evangelical minister who allows his final exorcism to be filmed by a documentary crew. (It's the "found footage" formula with an exorcism.)

"It's always great to work with our friend Eli, who has played a key role in establishing Lionsgate in the vanguard of the horror genre," said Jason Constantine, Lionsgate's president of acquisitions and co-productions. "'The Last Exorcism' feels as close to a real exorcism as anyone would ever want to get -- audiences are going to find this movie scary as, well, hell."

The Last Exorcism will premiere next month at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
