I was pleasantly surprised that this movie was better than I thought it would be. For the most part it was scary, but not over the top. Having a PG-13 rating instead of a R rating made it so it just wasn't a blood bath type of movie. Ashley Bell played the possessed girl, and did a very good acting job. Compared to "A Haunted House" the "Last Exorcism Part II" would win The Academy Award.

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.

This could possibly be the worst big screen movie I have ever seen.
The writers, producers, and directors should be hanging their head in total shame.
I'll sum this up, it is a title to get you in a movie seat and separate $10-12 from your wallet.
They put more work into the previews to get your ticket money than they did the entire movie.
PATHETIC - period.
Don't pay to see it at a theatre, don't buy the DVD on sale, don't toss $1.00 into a redbox machine, and honestly, don't waste 90 minutes of your life when it hits cable, do something more productive and entertaining like clip toenails.

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.
