The Last Exorcism II – Review Roundup, Eli Roth and Ashley Bell’s Stress Fracture

Considering the prequel was called The Last Exorcism, no one really saw The Last Exorcism II coming. But that hasn’t diminished the excitement surrounding Daniel Stamm’s possession horror, which hits cinemas tonight (March, 1).

If the recent flurry of awful horror films has got you scared to part with your hard-earned cash, then worry not, as TLE II seems to be a winner, if the critics are to be believed, anyway. The Guardian say: “Stamm effectively crafts a dozen or so marvellously creepy moments. Audience faith in the existence of decent horror films is reaffirmed,” while Empire Magazine wrote: “The method is well-worn and the subject-matter familiar, but this is a smart, scary little picture.” And with a respectable score of 73% on Rotten Tomatoes, you could do a lot worse tonight.

If that doesn’t convince you to phone up your cinema's advanced booking system and enunciate The Last Exorcism TWO down the phone 62 times, then perhaps Ashley Bell’s stress fractures will. See, the film’s star got so into her writhing and contorting, she had a physiotherapist on set to manipulate her bones. "I was thrilled to be able to do it, but there was a physical therapist on set in between takes that would have to pop my shoulder blades out. It was handled very carefully and the bed was heated so I could hyperextend and everything like that. I actually have a stress fracture to prove it...” Bell told Shockya.com.

Bell and Roth - Scaremongers

Eli Roth, who became someone of a modern day hero when it comes to the horror genre, has returned to the franchise, this time as a producer on Exorcism II. He’s been talking to Reuters about the New Orleans setting. “It's very much part of the story. It's Mardi Gras and Nell is going out and experiencing the world. But there is this thing still following her, this presence out there. So when you're seeing a creepy face, you don't know if it's a Mardi Gras character or if it's actually something quite sinister.”
