Trailer Debut: Lionsgate's The Last Exorcism

Ready for the first official trailer for Lionsgate's upcoming stab at demonic possession, the Eli Roth produced The Last Exorcism, formerly known as Cotton? Well then, pop a eucharist, get on your knees, and gaze upon its terrors!

Helmed by German director Daniel Stamm, the flick stars Patrick Fabian as a troubled evangelical minister who allows his final exorcism to be filmed by a documentary crew. Look for the film in theatres on August 27th.

Disillusioned by years of defrauding poor believers of their hard-earned cash, evangelical preacher Cotton Marcus decides to put the record straight by producing a spectacular documentary.

A letter from Louis, a poor farmer begging Cotton's help in driving the devil off his land, gives Cotton the perfect opportunity to expose the phoniness of his ministry. But then he meets Louis' disturbed young daughter, Nell ...

There's enough there to keep me interested... I will go and see it! Shame they changed the title from "Cotton", as I think it has a creepier ring to it. Or maybe that's because I'm a Hellraiser fan :)

I don't know what to think about this movie. It kind of looks a lot like Emily Rose, but that's just me.

The trailer relies on a shitload of imagery we've seen in the Exorcist movies (the back bending thing is obviously trying to invoke the spider walk memories), the storyline is creaky, and the whole "this ain't your daddy's exorcist movie!" angle is so dull.

I think I'll pass.
