Setting aside for the moment how you could even have a second last exorcism, the real question is why you would want it to be this one. Actually, because The Exorcist dropped the mic on all the pretenders in 1973 and ruined the chance that another possession movie would ever come close, why do filmmakers even bother? The Last Exorcism Part II brings back Nell (Ashley Bell), whose first last exorcism didn’t quite take and is still at least partially possessed by the devil. Scary movies that take place in New Orleans slow-churn the voodoo mystique, and this one tries. But like everything else here, it comes off flat. Even Satan himself isn’t at the top of his game.
