I have made my opinion well known about how much I loved Daniel Stamm’s THE LAST EXORCISM. After what seems like forever (three months), we finally have the first detailed synopsis of Eli Roth’s story for THE LAST EXORCISM II: THE BEGINNING OF THE END.
Directed by Ed Glass-Donnelly, from a script he wrote with Damien Chazell:
Eli Roth & Strike Entertainment bring us an even more terrifying and bigger scale sequel to THE LAST EXORCISM that grossed $70 million worldwide. It looks like Nell Sweetzerâ€™s last exorcism was not foolproof. She is backâ€¦ and so are her demons.
Continuing where the first film left off, teenage Nell Sweetzer 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. Confused and scared, Nell is examined by doctors but she doesnâ€™t remember much about the previous few months except that as a result of everything, her family is now dead. She is moved into Davreaux â€“ a girlsâ€™ 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 loca.
But something doesnâ€™t feel right to Nell. She is being sought after by the demon who possessed her in the first LAST EXORCISM. It wants Nell, but in a different way than beforeâ€¦
