First Trailer For The Last Exorcism: Part 2 Is Not At All What I Expected And I’m Fascinated

Not wanting to give too much away, the faux-documentary style was utterly crucial to what The Last Exorcism was discussing and, ultimately, meant. The big surprise with the trailer for Part 2 is that this new film isn’t a mock-doc at all, but in the traditional, “diegetic narrative” style.

This makes a whole new kind of sense to me now.

I think I know who that is on the phone and he’s got a killer recipe for banana bread.

By “pulling back” into “reality” like this, the second part can address the key idea of the first film – again, I don’t want to say here what that idea is because it’s a mother of a spoiler, but I honestly don’t think it has anything to do with the supernatural at all.

Suddenly, The Last Exorcism: Part 2 has both gained my curiosity and my attention. I want to see more.
