First Look: First Photo from Eli Roth's Exorcism Film Cotton

November 10, 2009
Source: Bloody-Disgusting


If you love horror, then you've got to check this out. Bloody-Disgusting got their hands on the first photo from the Eli Roth produced exorcism movie Cotton. We first featured a sales poster for this from Cannes back in May, but haven't heard much since. BD explains that it's "a Cloverfield-inspired exorcism movie" about an evangelical minister who turns against religion and decides to participate in a documentary in which he practices his last exorcism. Some photos have been floating around already, but this one is just crazy! At first I thought she was impaled on some spikes, but it's just the possessed girl bent backwards.

Cotton Photo

Cotton is directed by A Necessary Death director Daniel Stamm and co-written by Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland, who together wrote and directed the 2004 comedy Mail Order Wife previously. This film stars Patrick Fabian, Iris Bahr, Louis Herthum, Ashley Bell, Tony Bentley, Caleb Jones, Shanna Forrestall, Allen Boudreaux, Denise Lee, Becky Fly, Logan Craig Reid and Jamie Alyson Caudle. We haven't heard much else about Cotton, but supposedly it's finished shooting and currently in post-production. So we might as well expect it to show up at some film festivals (maybe Sundance?) or else it'll hit theaters sometime next year.

Yeah Emily Rose was the second best Devil possession movie, the first is of course The Exorcist. But I'll check this out.

The only scary thing about Emily Rose was Jennifer Carpenter

this was "cloverfield inspired"? i guess they want it to SUCK, because cloverfield was one of the WORST movies i'ver ever seen.

Solo Dolo Polo come on man lol! Carpenter did scare us, she showed that she can lead a movie, as a possessed girl, and she did awesome! Cloverfield wasn't that bad Beavis, well maybe it was, but its not awful.

@ #1 - Setting the bar pretty low are we?

@7 - Emily Rose had everything you could want from a possession movie without getting overly gross. The ideas, story, acting all created a pretty darn good movie. Though, we are just dealing with opinions here

Emily Rose wasn't possessed guys, hello, she had a mental disorder. Didn't you all understand the movie?

Eric on Nov 10, 2009


Eric we know, but it is still a devil possession film. And it was very disturbing, and had some damn fine acting.

A movie about people running away from a monster terrorizing a city and a movie about exorcism...i'm failing to draw a connection. I mean, they could just mean they took the fake video footage from a camera point of view, but there has been a lot of those kinds of movies that are way more similar to this premise.

ummmm on Nov 10, 2009


I'm with you xerxex. But I'll argue that it was about demon possession - that was the whole thing about knowing the different languages, the priest being visited by a demon and everything.

lol is that Zach Quinto?

Theo on Nov 10, 2009


Sweetness! Love these films!

Tra la la la la di da on Nov 10, 2009


I'm just glad this is Eli Roth PRODUCED and not DIRECTED.

Looks creepy.

Emily Rose... was JUNK and I can't believe all the praise.

Eric B on Nov 11, 2009


emily rose sucked. hard.

Brian Ricci on Nov 11, 2009


im also annoyed that it said.... from eli roth's exorcism movie. no its not. he's producing it. so what? that means he paid for it. i got excited because i love eli roth but he really has nothing to do with this. huh.

Brian Ricci on Nov 11, 2009


This story has promise. I'm not a huge fan of Eli Roth, but I'm willing to give the sumbitch a day in court. I do like my possession movies. Emily Rose was decent and had some very cool parts, but it was a little labored. Of course, Exorcist is the High Exalted Grand Poobah of them all and no one will ever come close in this or any other lifetime. You simply cannot capture what that movie did ever again.
