This movie is about Pastor Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) who is filming a documentary of how exorcisms are a scam. That there is no such thing as a demon; the possession is in the person’s mind and Marcus convinces him/her that the demon is gone by performing musical parlor tricks. A letter comes to Marcus’ office in need of an exorcism to help a possessed girl. Marcus packs up his tricks and illusions and he and the documentary crew are on the road. They arrive at the house to meet the father, Louis Sweetzer (Louis Herthum) and the angry brother Caleb Sweetzer (Caleb Landry Jones). They are not happy about the recording but accept as they walk into the house to meet the sweet Nell Sweetzer(Ashley Bell). Marcus begins his performance to “drive out” the demon. When he is done and the family is convinced the demon is gone, Marcus sets out with a large payment and another example to prove his case. An incident happens with Nell, so Marcus comes back and is finally convinced that Nell is possessed and realizes that he is out of his league. He seeks help from the local church and that pastor comes out to try to perform the exorcism. Things continue to get strange and dangerous during the ceremony. Is Marcus’ life in danger? Can Nell be saved? Will anyone die due to the demon’s antic?Review:Watching this film kept me at “oh something cool and gross is about to happen,” but it never does. The entire movie was like a teaser trailer; it had so much potential to be scary and give me nightmares, but failed. I could see that the director, Eli Roth, wanted to be different and have a new exorcism movie without replicating the previous films. But seriously, the film looked like it was made with little effort. The film was filled with looks, scared looks, angry looks, happy looks, and a few dead livestock. What is that? Why attack the livestock, when it’s more evil to kill people (only in movies that is)? The only good thing I can say is that I liked when Marcus and the film crew saw pictures of their dead bodies drown and hung on the wall. The drawings were a prediction of how each of them was going to die. That gave a tiny chill and then it melted when the movie switched to the next scene. Towards the end, the film starts to answer questions but didn’t. For example, so it’s a cult of the surrounding neighbors, including the local pastor, are in on it except the father? Who impregnated her? Her brother? So she was possessed by her demon baby? How can a baby be able to cry and form a body within about a month of conception? Why couldn’t they wait until she gave birth? All of these questions and more just left me at “WHAT?” when the credits rolled. All in all, the original Exorcist is a classic and is highly respected and I will never see this film again. Please stop making these types of movies unless, Wes Craven or Steven Spielberg is the director and writer.
