279) The Last Exorcism (2010) Dir: Daniel Stamm Date Released: August 2010 Date Seen: September 4, 2010 Rating: 2/5
I kept waiting for Stamm to make something of his found footage premise, something that would put make The Last Exorcism more than just a cheapy genre films that thoughtlessly exploits the trend. I reasoned, "Surely it's coming considering that at one point, Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) can be heard perfectly even though the camera is at least two hundred feet away from him. Because surely he didn't just happen to have a portable microphone on him that happened to be on at the time." Which just shows to go ya that I overthought this one by a lot. Pretty lackluster and ends with all of the panache of a Clive Barker novel. Blerg.
