    Ashley Bell’s nuanced performance and a surprisingly pyrotechnic finale liven up a gloomy sequel. Title’s still nonsense, mind.

    At least this movie, like its predecessor, has Ashley Bell as Nell. An actress who suggests religious piety, carnal fire and satanic aggression with equal dexterity, Ms. Bell provides a pulse an audience can connect with amid the standard-issue atmospheric accouterments.

    Unfortunately, no one involved seems to have bent over backwards to make the movie either original or even all that scary.

    Now Bell can break out of the genre. She's served her time.

    When the creators of The Last Exorcism Part II swapped pseudo-verité realism for psychological realism, they made it a lot harder to take their franchise seriously.

    An abysmal sequel that abandons the found-footage concept, along with the pockets of wit and originality that made its predecessor salvageable.

    The film, however, is short on genuine scares and ingenuity.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The Last Exorcism Part 2 is much better than the first one. It is more entertaining and scarier. It has some suspense and the girl is acting really good. The ending was a bit of strange and the plot had many gaps and it left you some questions about this movie. It was a good sequel though I expected to see Nael's brother who was in that kind of sorority in the end of the first one. However, it is entertaining despite the fact some things will not be easily understood or actually explained. Maybe the producers should have read again the script. I didn't understand the ending. she destroys the world or something like that? Not sure. HOWEVER, is is an enjoyable horror film and much better than the first one. It will scare you at some moments and make you stand up from your chair. Not a must-see but a good horror film just for fun if you want to be scared Expand

    It was kind of disappointing because the first one was so good. The biggest problem was that it answers no questions or completely resolves the ending of the first one. It wasn't all the scary either. It was pretty entertaining though. Despite the stupid last minute of it. Expand

    "The Last Exorcism Part II" had no reason to be made at all, it should have been straight to DVD, it resolves nothing, it is dull, stupid and really empty, just a nothing movie, but on the bright side it is creepy and scary delivering a good time just like the first, but this time, no luck at resolving anything from the first movie, it should have been a Director's Cut or Straight to DVD.

    Esta pelicula no me gusto para nada, no tuvo sentido la trama y tuvo un pesimo argumento."The Last Exorcism Part II" fue diferente a su primera pelicula, esta no tuvo terror y suspenso, y ademas tuvo malas actuaciones de los protagonistas. Expand

    "The Last Exorcism: Part II" gives the devil plenty of space and time to show off his handiwork, but apart from making young women contort their bodies--that's about all he does. The film is short on genuine scares and any ingenuity. So many sequences are structured, that the pattern becomes predictable and tiresome. Especially since the first film at least set a standard for originality--this sequel--which reshapes it's creative team, delivers nothing Expand

    Everything good about the first film, which I loved, has been thrown out the window. It has simply become just another generic paranormal-like film and that's really disappointing. Expand

    Stupid. Horrific. And Stupid. The Last Exorcism Part 2 was just really fashionable. Or you think so? Tis film has Ashley Bell with a broken stupid role and the film has no compelling with the original. NOT EVEN A SINGLE COMPELLING. It has a broken horror story and bad dialogues with the special effects used at the wrong time. Fans of the original might put up with it but IAM definitely sure this film will disappoint horror film lovers. Expand
