American supernatural horror movie The Last Exorcism Part II was co-written and directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly in 2013. Louis Herthum, Julia Garner, Spencer Treat Clark, and Ashley Bell are the main actors. It was published on March 1, 2013, and it is a follow-up to The Last Exorcism.
The movie follows Nell Sweetzer as she tries to move on from her past mistakes and rebuild her life. Then, Nell begins to understand that the monster who once possessed her has returned to seek her out. It is not presented in a discovered footage style like its predecessor.
In addition to receiving largely unfavorable reviews, the movie flopped at the box office, earning only $25 million globally against a $5 million budget.
The Last Exorcism 2 Plot
A couple, Jared and Lily (Judd Lormand and Boyana Balta), discover a Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) who appears devilish sitting next to their refrigerator. Soon after, she is brought to a hospital, where she is found to be catatonic.
Nell’s condition appears to have improved and she no longer has “bad dreams” after spending a few months at the perceptive and compassionate therapist Frank’s (Muse Watson) home for girls in New Orleans and settling in as a chambermaid at a hotel under the supervision of her boss Beverly (Diva Tyler).
Nell attends a Mardi Gras parade with her friends Gwen (Julia Garner), Daphne (Erica Michelle), and Monique (Sharice Angelle Williams). While there, Nell notices a number of weird occurrences, including masked men observing her. The worse things grow, the more she alters. She starts to pick up on signs that the demon Abalam has returned.
The previous movie’s events are depicted in a video that Nell’s friends see on YouTube, revealing that the missing footage has been found. They put a demon that is “in love” with Nell into the body of a sacrificial chicken in an effort to get rid of it. Calder is compelled to kill Nell because the magical force within her proves to be too strong.
Nell is confronted by a demon who assumes the forms of Chris, her father, and a duplicate of Nell and implores her to take its hand. Nell’s pulse briefly stops, giving Calder, Cecile, and Jeffrey the impression that she had passed away. When she ultimately caves and takes the demon’s hand, the three members of the secret organization are slaughtered and the home is set on fire.
