CBS Films picks up US distribution rights to ‘The Last Exorcism: The Beginning of the End’





CBS Films has closed a deal with Studio Canal for US distribution rights to director Ed Gass-Donnelly’s The Last Exorcism: The Beginning of the End. The sequel to Daniel Stamm’s terrific found footage shocker will be released in US cinemas March 1st 2013.

Directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly (Small Town Murder Songs, This Beautiful City), The Last Exorcism: The Beginning of the End will see Ashley Bell return as Nell Sweetzer, and here she has another case of possession to deal with. Gass-Donnelly also co-wrote the film with Damien Chazelle, and Eli Roth will once again serve as a producer.

Here is the official synopsis which was revealed at the American Film Market:

Eli Roth & Strike Entertainment bring us an even more terrifying and bigger scale sequel to THE LAST EXORCISM that grossed $70 million worldwide. It looks like Nell Sweetzer’s last exorcism was not foolproof. She is back… and so are her demons.

Continuing where the first film left off, teenage Nell Sweetzer is found dirty and terrified in the woods having just escaped a demon ritual in which a cult helped her give birth to a demon baby. Confused and scared, Nell is examined by doctors but she doesn’t remember much about the previous few months except that as a result of everything, her family is now dead. She is moved into Davreaux – a girls’ halfway house in New Orleans, where she will try to put her life back together with the help of the therapist, Frank Merle. She even begins to date a boy named Chris and starts a job at a local hotel.

But something doesn’t feel right to Nell. She is being sought after by the demon who possessed her in the first LAST EXORCISM. It wants Nell, but in a different way than before…

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
