Capone has a disturbing and tasty (and exclusive) bit of THE LAST EXORCISM for you!!!

Hey, folks. Capone in Chicago here.

At Comic-Con this year, I saw two films, both of which I hope to have reviews for soon. But I can tell you that I like both films immensely. One I expected I might enjoy quite a bit, and the other, well, I knew next to nothing about going in other than it was directed by Daniel Stamm, who did a small film I saw at SXSW in 2008 called A NECESSARY DEATH, a haunting piece that dealt with suicide, the corrupting power of the internet, and the dangers of an artistic dream. It was also a really cool film. Following the same documentary-/found-footage style of that film, Stamm (and producer Eli Roth) have structured a clever film that was supposed to expose exorcisms and exorcists as phonies. I'll say no more at this point, but things don't quite work out for the film's subject, a fake preacher who scams hillbillies into thinking their family members are possessed and charges them a pretty penny to cast out the demons inside.

Lionsgate has given Ain't It Cool News this exclusive video clip/trailer that sheds a little light on this frequently twisted and scary little gem. See what you think…

    by flclhack

    That looks to be the exact same trailer I've been seeing on tv for the past few days. If it's not exact, it's pretty damn close.

  • July 31, 2010, 7:52 p.m. CST


    by Sardonic

    Looks pretty standard.

  • July 31, 2010, 7:57 p.m. CST

    Saw this on dread central weeks ago

    by AngelinasOilBoy

    Looks kinda cool, but it does seem to spoil the is she/isnt possessed suspense of the plot. If she's not possessed how else are they gonna explain that ceiling crawl? And rated PG-13? *rolls eyes*

    AngelinaOB...she's not on the ceiling

    by tang126

    Being a "handheld", as-it-happens type of flick, I'm sure the camera has fallen or dropped and turned upside down. Or maybe the producers purposely flipped it for the trailer for added creepiness. But I just froze the frame, flipped it on my computer and she's just on a hardwood floor. The white baseboard is behind her, and the door is slightly cracked. I believe there's a tan-colored area rug in the foreground. No ceiling crawl, just an upside-down camera (unless some people built their doors all the way to the ceiling). :)

  • July 31, 2010, 8:23 p.m. CST

    i second what flclhack said

    by Kammich

    its pretty much shot-for-shot what has been showing on TV for the last 10 days or so, but i'm an AICN supporter to the bone so i'll give you guys the benefit of the doubt on this being exclusive. anyway, i was really intrigued at first glimpse about this movie, but my intrigue is waning. i'll wait for some reviews, because this reeks of a movie that is putting all of its "money shots" in the advertisements. I am, however, interested in the con-man-priest aspect, which I hadn't heard mentioned until now.

  • July 31, 2010, 8:52 p.m. CST

    Well spotted tang126

    Thanks, I missed that :P

    a better tagline

    by Bouncy X

    considering the concept that he scams people, instead of saying "this will be his last" when talking about the 50 exorcisms he's performed, it should have read "this will be his first". thats totally what i expected to see.

  • July 31, 2010, 9:08 p.m. CST


    by ganymede3010

    Maybe I'll catch it on G4-TV during the Movies that don't suck Marathon.

    They mean it'll be the last *movie* about exorcism

    by WickedJacob

    The original exorcist was the first and last good movie about exorcism. The psycho-control that gets congregations so worked up in mass hypnosis (to the point that kids have been known to die during these nutfests) -- that is what is really scary.

  • July 31, 2010, 9:30 p.m. CST

    Why the fuck does the poster say "presented by STRIKE"

    by Tall_Boy66

    "And Eli Roth". How in God's name is the name of STRIKE - I searched it, it's a production company - gonna sell some tickets? Worst fucking poster ever, sounds like the gum stride, and I refuse to ever see it on that principle.

  • July 31, 2010, 9:36 p.m. CST

    and Roth somehow got me amped up about this on Twitter. YAWN.

    Ok so they are actually filming everything pixar suggested

    by UltraTron

    for Tron Legacy. And they are tweaking shots further for young Flynn. I'm starting to get a good feeling. Yes that's right they are making the fucking thing exactly like pixar said they should. It's almost too good to be true.

    by Dkev00

    There aint nothing exclusive about this clip. It's the standard movie trailer that's been out for a couple months...LMAO, tool. Oh and Joblo says this movie is fuckin laughable.

  • July 31, 2010, 10:54 p.m. CST

    PG13?... should 13 year olds see this?

    by JimmyJoe RedSky

    i guess if you are a god fearing 13 year old - this should be required viewing in every catholic/christian school - nothing sells religion better than fear

  • July 31, 2010, 10:54 p.m. CST

    I saw this trailer at the movies...

    by vettebro

    It was in front of Inception. What if you don't believe in God? Then you don't believe in the Devil either. Or this bullshit movie. The Exorcist was awesome. Still stands up today. This looks like a SyFy movie to me. Yawn....

    Found Footage

    by The Funketeer

    That "found footage" bit only works when you cast unknowns. Hiring the dude from Veronica Mars and Big Love makes it hard to buy into the concept.

    Actually REC 2 had the best ceiling crawl.

    by IronSpidey

    I shouted for joy instead of in fear because of how fuckin' cool that scene was. IMO the supernatural/possession aspect of that movie was way more original than anything I've seen in the trailers for the Last Exorcism.

  • Aug. 1, 2010, 1:02 a.m. CST

    an exorcism movie?

    by BadMrWonka

    as long as it doesn't have any of the cliches of a little girl twisting her head unnaturally, then looking creepy from under her suddenly natted hair, while being compelled by the power of christ and crawling on the floor in an unnatural way with a deep, disembodied voice speaking through her....I'm there!<p>oh wait, just watched the trailer. oh well.

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...this doesn't look so good, and I'll admit most of them haven't been great, but for some reason I really like that found footage/faux documentary schtick. <p> I want more. <p> Think about it. You could remake The Godfather from super eight footage found in Clemenza's personal effects mixed with newsreel footage. How about Casablanca seen through the lens of the documentary filmmaker recording Major Strasser's visit to Africa? <p> Really, I think all classic films should get this treatment. Sure it gets a little dodgy when you end up with a tapestry and wall painting for Ben Hur, but maybe for historical movies you could work in the ancient astronauts angle and have it come from the anthropological video studies they were making of humanity, as found in the excavated wreckage of one of their ships.

    Completely disagree with your comment there, my friend. Look at how many movies have been made over the last decade (at least) regarding vampires and zombies, and compare that to movies about exorcism.<br><br> The difference in ratio is fucking enormous. Excorcism movies feel like they have ben done to death as they ARE ALL THE SAME or follow the exact same story/plotline. There is nothing fresh here.

    I saw this in a press screening in London. I has some moments. It takes its time to slowly build to the final climax (a bit telegraphed, if you ask me)... I have to agree with some comment on imdb (and most of the people at the screening with me seemed to agree too). The music is pretty cheap. It would have worked very well (and the whole thing would have been a lot braver) if it had been without music. Not a masterpiece, by all means, but not too bad either... Having said that, please, ENOUGH with this "found footage Blair Witch sort of thing!!!!

    Wanna know what disturbs me?

    The thought of more Safe Auto commercials with Lady Rerun.

    They used music?

    PA's low frequency bass rumble is one thing, but a score is something entirely different. <p> These studios need to make up their minds. Is this supposed to be found footage or not? At least when Romero released "Diary" he had the conceit of the lead actress editing it.
