‘The Last Exorcism’ Should Have Been Called ‘The Second-To-Last Exorcism”

Remember The Last Exorcism? It’s one of those horror “mockumentaries,” featuring what’s purported to be real footage but is actually just actors saying lines in front of the camera, just like the movies Howard Hawks used to make. It’s pretty good, actually. Anyway, in an almost creepy confluence with all those “what will they call the sequel?” jokes that were thrown around when the movie came out, they’re actually doing a sequel to The Last Exorcism.

Ashley Bell, who starred in the first movie, is returning for the sequel, as is producer Eli Roth, who says (among other things):

“The first film worked great as a PG-13 psychological film, but now we want to go R-rated and show the true horror of what this subject matter offers. The biggest creative challenge will be coming up with the right title!”

How about The For Real Last Exorcism? Heh heh, stand aside folks, I get paid to write jokes like this. (Deadline)
