I posted news articles for the poster and the pictures so what’s to stop me from posting the new trailer for Lionsgate’s The Last Exorcism, the found footage feature centered on the Reverend Cotton Marcus and his final exorcism and the documentation of it. Of course, things don’t go as planned and the story goes from there.
Yahoo revealed the trailer, which can be seen directly below, or right here in high definition. Give it a watch and tell me… just how scary will this thing be?
The Last Exorcism hits theaters on August 27.
When he arrives on the rural Louisiana farm of Louis Sweetzer, the Reverend Cotton Marcus expects to perform just another routine â€œexorcismâ€ 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 â€“ and themselves â€“ before it is too late.
