review by
Mike Haberfelner

Father Peter (Dennis LaValle) has just been murdered during an exorcism by a suicide assassin with a bomb strapped to his body - something that leaves Jo (Rachele Brooke Smith) shattered, because ever since the death of her mother, the Catholic church and Father Peter in particular has taken care of her and her sister Maddie (Terri Ivens). But while Jo has led a life of virtue, Maddie has taken to alcohol, and has led a rather promiscuous lifestyle - and yet the two girls love each other and are there for each other. That is, until Maddie starts to turn evil - but not just like that, she seems to have gathered some demonic powers that have given her to cause a man burst into flame by mere willpower. It's when she tries to kill another girl in plain sight in front of a large crowd at the bar she works at though that she's arrested and put in the psych ward. Jo's sure that Maddie's possessed, but she has a hard time to convince anybody - so she remembers a renegade priest, Marco (Danny Trejo), who has a background in exorcism, she visits him, and ultimately she learns she herself has to be ordained a priest in order to exorcise the demon possessing Maddie and save her sister - but that's much easier said than done ...

 

Now in all frankness, if you take The Last Exorcist too seriously, it just doesn't work, it's just too far-fetched and full of clichés. But if you choose to view it as a fun ride without looking for realism or deeper meaning, then you'll probably be entertained. Fact is, yes the film is full of genre mainstays that seem to be cobbled together to keep things going rather than to make up an original storyline, but keeping things going is what the film does, with many nice setpieces (from Maddie willing a man to spontaneously combust to Jo performing some martial arts mid-exorcism) that by themselves are a hoot to watch, and if you manage to just disregard all the slightly heavy-handed religious undercurrents, you'll probably find this one very entertaining.
