I can't believe I fell for this. I was literally falling asleep in the theater. Nothing about the movie was remotely scary. It dragged on and on with NO action. This is the WORST movie since Black Christmas!!! Don't waste your time watching in the theater, on DVD, or on cable.

The scariest thing in this movie is its opening scene. PERIOD. This sequel had a lot of promise given how good the first one was, but the writers dropped the ball. First, the contortion effects and the special FX in general are non existent in this movie. Second, the actual exorcism lasts 5 minutes before the group bails. Third, if you decide that the girl is the backstory of the sequel then the movie then you MUST show us a demon. LE2 gets the award for biggest waste of time. I'd rather have seen the killing than blood splatter on windows suggesting she ripped into her victims. Sheeesh!!!

I have seen most if not all of the Exorcist movies (definitely saw the first one) and all of them have been very good or good, but this movie does not live up to expectations. Very little effects, all killings are done behind doors and the only thing you see is blood splattered on windows, a lot of talk, and the end of movie the actress gets a car and drives around town lighting up trees on fire and with a little smile on her face... I feel like that represents the director driving all the way to the bank with our money and laughing because he knows he is making money with a very low low low budget movie. I regret seeing this movie and wish I could get my money back! ( have never done a review and have seen movies that have been ok, but this movie was trash and don't want people to waste their money like I did.

The first one was very good compared #2 and the first one was good at best. Was VERY cheesy and something you might rent at a redbox. The characters were very confusing in which you didnt know who was real or who was good or bad. For a demon possession they went overboard with the powers "abalam" had which they show at the end of the movie. if you liked the first one like i did this movie is going to be a total let down. On a positive note the beginning was very good and the plot where she goes to a half way home was good. The mardi gras scene was well put. The actual exorcism was probably the worst one ive seen for an exorcism movie.

The original film was a mostly smart horror movie with a really dumb ending. This sequel basically expands the dumb ending into a whole film. TLE2 follows what happens to the girl who was possessed in the first film as she tries to move on with her life. Ashley Bell gives an impressively committed performance but you can see her struggling to overcome the bad material very much like her character in the film struggles to escape the clutches of the demon that still wants her. In both cases the effort is ultimately futile. This movie is seriously terrible, but not in a so bad it's good way (except for the ending which is pretty amusing). It's just boring and dumb with no scares and very few ideas, good or bad. Bell manages to make you root for her character, but she's the lone bright spot in a movie that never should have gotten a theatrical release in the first place.
