Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Arriving in theaters today is a new movie produced by Eli Roth, directed by A Necessary Death's Daniel Stamm, starring Patrick Fabian as Reverend Cotton Marcus, called The Last Exorcism, a horror "documentary" about Marcus' final exorcism. So how was it? What do all the horror fans think of this new take on exorcism? It currently has a surprising 68% on Rotten Tomatoes. How was Fabian as Marcus and the rest of the cast? Was the documentary style just a gimmick or did it work well? If you've seen it, leave a comment and let us know what you thought of The Last Exorcism!
I haven't seen The Last Exorcism myself and will not be contributing to this discussion, however I've heard mixed things about the movie, mostly that it starts out great but loses its steam by the third act. I'm not the biggest horror fan myself, but if I hear that a horror flick is a must see I'll check it out, but I haven't heard that about this film yet. I trust Ryan Rotten of STYD and even he didn't like it that much. Is it good at all?
What did you think of The Last Exorcism? Another unique modern horror flick or just awful?
