Must Watch: Trailer for Eli Roth Produced The Last Exorcism
Holy hell this looks creepy! Lionsgate has debuted the official trailer for The Last Exorcism, an Eli Roth produced and Daniel Stamm directed (A Necessary Death) horror film. This new exorcism film is shot like a faux-documentary, kind of Paranormal Activity about evangelical minister's last exorcism, which definitely ups the creepiness of the whole thing. I love that style, but my concern is that audiences may be getting tired of it quickly, but I don't really know. This does look like it will be pretty good, so don't let Eli Roth's name scare you off. If you're a horror film fan or love exorcisms (who doesn't?) then check out this creepy trailer!

The Last Exorcism, previously known as Cotton, was directed by A Necessary Death director Daniel Stamm and co-written by Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland, who together wrote & directed the 2004 comedy Mail Order Wife previously. This stars Patrick Fabian, Iris Bahr, Louis Herthum, Ashley Bell, Tony Bentley, Caleb Jones, Shanna Forrestall, Allen Boudreaux, Logan Craig Reid and Jamie Alyson Caudle. This film was shot on location very quietly down in Lousiana and it definitely looks like it'll scare the crap out of a lot of people. Lionsgate is bringing The Last Exorcism to theaters everywhere starting on August 27th later this year.

Wow. Not bad at all. Finally a good looking horror movie.

Meh. Only that last scene looked scary. Who knows, maybe they're saving the best for the movie. But that trailer did absolutely nothing for me.

@ #3 & #5 You guys took the words right outta my fucking mouth.

..."don't let Eli Roth's name scare you off..."? What the hell? Eli Roth's name is what got me interested in this when it was first announced. And I'm not alone on that.
Tom on May 25, 2010
This is a comedy, right? No guys, seriously, it's a comedy, right?

Why do I look at this sort of stuff late at night. Even if it wasn't so bad, I'm still a bit of a wuss, haha.

I love Eli Roth. This movie looks scary and way better than Paranormal Activity. Gonna check it out for sure. I love anything Eli Roth is involved in!

I'm a sucker for young women possessed by the devil. Might actually see this one in theatres.
Delvis on May 26, 2010

Loks good....gonna check

I'm surprised that after Paranormal Activity hit big, we haven't had more horror films done with the held hand camera style. The hand held gimmick seems to be an effective tool with I do enjoy. It worked for the Blair Witch Project, Cloverfield, Rec and Paranormal Activity. It adds a realistic flavour to films, but I'm glad it's not being over done like 3D. The flick does look creepy, and again, it's the handheld style that seems to do it for me here.

Meh...looks like crap. Horrible preview but doesn't mean it won't be good. The best part was the beginning of this with the kid.
tra la la la la di da on May 26, 2010

Jacob Crim on May 26, 2010
I don't really like the Cloverfield-camerashit in this one.
Robbie on May 26, 2010
Looks pretty rad... that guy always makes me think of Saved By The Bell: The New Class
Antioch on May 26, 2010
Sorry... Saved By The Bell: The College Years
Antioch on May 26, 2010
It looks like a bad copy of rec
Oldren on May 26, 2010
It looks like a date night movie. I'd rather watch The Other Woman.
Daniel Felts on May 26, 2010
This looks like paranormal activity, but with real actors and a real crew. I really hated that movie, the worst I've seen in a very long time.
Ricardo on May 26, 2010
This looks like it will be alot better than the Emily Rose movie.
King Aweasome on May 26, 2010
i dont see how ppl say this look like crap lol this look scary as hell, probly would give other directors ideas on what a horror movie suppose to be like XD
kyle on May 26, 2010
yea doesnt look scary only creepy.. The Exorcist is waaaaay stupid scary.. but i'll still watch it
mochonko on May 26, 2010
Please dont post trailers of such shoddy quality? In this day and age, it must be possible for Firstshowing.net to get direct access to HD trailers to post on their site, and not links to other sites to watch a trailer in better quality(this one:waste of time, so bad pic/sound quality)or do ppl still dabble with "exclusively on apple.com" ect for trailers?? Is it hard to get a hold of (any) trailers to post on firstshowing.net? Does it have to be links to/from other sites? But 2 things really: 1)Good quality traliers. 2)Trailers without sneak adds at the end. And finally: "...so don't let Eli Roth's name scare you off". Why would I be reluctant of something the Jew Bear is involved with? I'd stand shoulder to shoulder with him any day and bash in naziskulls.

Generally don't find horror movies scary but I'm always cautious around exorcism films as that's one particular subject that can play with my mind and keep me up at night.. However this trailer looks stupid. Just a girl screaming while perched on things, with the obligatory spine bend thrown in at the end. Could just as easily be a trailer for a documentary about teenage puberty. You can tell if it's scary or not by how much image manipulation and sound effects they have to use in the trailer to make it actually creepy. The editors had to spend a while working on this one..

didn't get any shrills. :/ hmmm..... seems like a cat-n-mouse kinda film. i'll give it a look after i watch splice.
Jacksion on May 28, 2010
To Kile: If you are frightened by this. you'd also be frightened by your own shadow XD
Oldren on May 29, 2010
This looks like a poorly made rip off of "The Exorcism of Emily Rose", which I liked. Eli Roth just sucks.
Eric on Jun 2, 2010
@45 Uhh no it looks like a BETTER version of emily rose cause emily rose was a terrible movie. This actually looks kind of scary/creepy, unlike emily rose was.
Peace Love & GaGa on Jun 2, 2010
Ugh, all horror movies post 2005 look exactly the same and none of them are scary. Even from watching the trailer I can tell the characters are 2 dimensional also the editing for the trailer is really annoying, so the editing for the movie is probably just as choppy and terrible. The girl that is supposed to be the devil is just a regular girl who puts on a raspy voice (nothing compared to Linda Blair's make-up effects that actually caused some people to faint in theaters when The Exorcist first came out in 1975). This straight to DVD grade movie is probably laced with CGI and cheap "things jumping out at you" thrills. Maybe they should take a hint from those of the 1970's. People really knew how to make horror movies then.
Lulo on Jul 20, 2010
WOW Emily Rose 2 Cruise Control The Hunt For The Crystal Toilet would be a better choice for a title. Is it me or has Hollywood just completly given up. Cheap low budget SYFY channel movies are the new normal blockbusters. Can the bar be lowered any more, mabey under the ground?
