Sequel to 2010 low-budget horror hit ditches the "found footage" angle
Unlike it's 2010 predecessor, "The Last Exorcism Part II" will not try to pretend it is "found footage" and will instead attempt to scare audiences with a more traditional form of storytelling.
Picking up where "The Last Exorcism" left off, the CBS Films release follows formerly possessed Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) back into civilization after being found alone in the woods. As she tries to rebuild her life in New Orleans, a familiar evil demon named Abalom comes back to haunt her.
And this time, he's bigger and badder, possessing anyone in his path while he pursues unimaginably horrific plans for Nell that mean her last exorcism was just the beginning.
Based on that logic and Hollywood's constant quest for profitable franchises, this may not end up being her final exorcism, either.
Directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly from a screenplay by Gass-Donnelly and Damien Chazelle, the Eli Roth-produced horror sequel hits theaters on March 1.
