Lionsgate just sent over the poster for The Last Exorcism and it’s a nice piece of art, but considering we’re talking about another film involving exorcisms it’s not like it’s anything we haven’t seen before.
They also sent over a new synopsis for the feature which was written by Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland and directed by Daniel Stamm:
When he arrives on the rural Louisiana farm of Louis Sweetzer, the Reverend Cotton Marcus expects to perform just another routine “exorcism” on a disturbed religious fanatic. An earnest fundamentalist, Sweetzer has contacted the charismatic preacher as a last resort, certain his teenage daughter Nell is possessed by a demon who must be exorcized before their terrifying ordeal ends in unimaginable tragedy.
Buckling under the weight of his conscience after years of parting desperate believers with their money, Cotton and his crew plan to film a confessionary documentary of this, his last exorcism. But upon arriving at the already blood drenched family farm, it is soon clear that nothing could have prepared him for the true evil he encounters there. Now, too late to turn back, Reverend Marcusâ€™ own beliefs are shaken to the core when he and his crew must find a way to save Nell – and themselves – before it is too late.
The Last Exorcism hits theaters on August 27, for a slightly larger look at the poster below click here.
