Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found terrified and alone in rural Louisiana. Back in the relative safety of New Orleans, Nell realizes that she can't remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family. Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean her last exorcism was just the

Once the "what is real, what is fantasy" questions are answered, and exorcism part deux commences, The Last Exorcism Part II abandons its half-intelligent, tender exploration of Nell's vulnerability and desirability.
When the creators of The Last Exorcism Part II swapped pseudo-verité realism for psychological realism, they made it a lot harder to take their franchise seriously ...
Viewers are taunted with the possibility of witnessing a possessed chicken.
The Last Exorcism Part II is an effectively unnerving, slow-burn supernatural horror tale.
We get this pallid, waifish film with a safe PG-13, which allows for no nastiness, no filthiness, and one lonely F-bomb. I remember when demon flicks used to be dangerous and shocking.
So impoverished in every regard that it cannot dare to dream of being something so impressive and respectable as "ramshackle".
Ashley Bell is still the best thing about the franchise but even she can't rescue this one. No "Part 3" please!
...a last moment burst of energy... promises another sequel, one whose title will most likely contain the words lasty-last-last. If we're lucky.
Somewhere deep inside The Last Exorcism Part II may lurk an intriguing idea for a character-based horror movie follow-up, but it never manages to quite tease it out.
So many sequences are structured to build to a little jolt, that the pattern becomes predictable and tired. Especially since the first film set a high standard for originality, this sequel, which is helmed by a different creative team, disappoints.
The Last Exorcism should have been exactly that, because Part II is easily one of the worst horror sequels I've ever seen.
Here we have the three B's of horror -- bland, bad and boring -- packed into 88 minutes (that seemed much longer) in a sequel that nobody asked for.
Everything that worked -- and worked exceedingly well -- in The Last Exorcism is absent from the sequel.
Filled with tortured, manipulative shock scares, it teasingly provides a setup for yet another supernatural sequel en route to the DVD roster.
This feeble sequel makes even its lackluster predecessor look good--or at least less terrible than it was.
You may not have paid for a ticket yet, but believe me, you have seen it all - in other, earlier - though not necessarily better - movies.
