I enjoyed the first Last Exorcism, despite breaking a lot of the laws of the found footage gimmick and having a really lackluster ending, it was still pretty good. This movie sucked ass.
Why? It's boring, it isn't scary, it isn't unintentionally funny and I couldn't get into the story at all. It was just uninteresting that for a movie that's around 90 minutes long I was begging for it to end. The characters are forgettable, it has lame scares, and the plot is just a mess. Apparantly a follow up to a movie with a bad ending isn't a very good idea. Oh and the ending sucked, but it was at least interesting I'll give it that.
Alright what did work? Ashley Bell. She did a very good job, and was very likable, and made me want to see her get out of this situation. The beginning was kind of cool, it looked nice, and it at least seemed like it was trying to be a good sequel. But I don't know why they dropped the found footage gimmick, because that worked out so well for Blair Witch 2.
This movie could have been like Paranormal Activity 2 and been a great sequel, it could have been like Grave Encounters 2, or hell, it could even have been like Blair Witch 2 and it would have been better. It sucked.
