This exorcist is something of a charlatan, and charismatic Reverend Cotton is planning to make a documentary of this, his last, fake exorcism. But suddenly, there really are demons around… The Last Exorcism delivers good scares and solid performances. It’s not entirely new (Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity are also ‘found-footage horror films’), but Daniel Stamm manages to create an unsettling atmosphere that won’t disappoint followers of the genre.
THE LAST EXORCISM | Directed by Daniel Stamm (USA 2010) with Patrick Fabian and Ashley Bell. Opens September 30.
