The Last Exorcism

4

A brilliantly-judged docu-horror

Last Exorcism review

One of the year’s best surprises.

A documentary crew follows showman preacher Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian), who exposes his own fake exorcisms, only to take One Last Job that just might be the real thing…

And Daniel Stamm’s terrific docu-horror certainly is: the performances are compulsive, the hand-cam aesthetic is expertly judged, the chills are bracingly real and the cunning script keeps you guessing brilliantly (until the out-of-ideas ending, that is).

Plenty of solid extras on the disc, including three commentaries, real exorcism stories and even your own exorcism prayer.
