The current king of horror, Eli Roth, is back with a creepy new film! Roth, the man who brought us seminal modern day scare-fests like Hostel and Cabin Fever is now presenting a new chapter of horror with the documentary-style film The Last Exorcism, which opened last Friday.
We recently had a chance to speak with the film's producer Eli Roth as well as actors Patrick Fabian and Ashley Bell about the new film, it's scary documentary style and Bell's star-making performance. Take a look below!
When he arrives on the rural Louisiana farm of Louis Sweetzer (Louis Herthum), the Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) 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 (Ashley Bell) is possessed by a demon who must be exorcized before the 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 Marcus' 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.
