Too many things in Part II only happen because this is a film, with telegraphed sound effects travelling as fast as the speed of light. Only in Hollywood do such rules of physics apply.

When you qualify your movie as the "last" anything, a sequel seems a bit out of the question, but these new filmmakers have essentially relegated the 2010 original to a mere backstory.

if this ludicrously-titled follow-up sounds like a crass cash-in, ...the devil here is in the details, some of which are strikingly novel.

An inventive Satanic shocker, which is much more than we expected.

Ashley Bell's nuanced performance and a surprisingly pyrotechnic finale liven up a gloomy sequel.

A generally effective sequel.

Austin Chronicle

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 Part II is an effectively unnerving, slow-burn supernatural horror tale.

An actress who suggests religious piety, carnal fire and satanic aggression with equal dexterity, Ms. Bell provides a pulse an audience can connect with amid the standard-issue atmospheric accouterments.

The director wisely steps back and permits the agitation to sink in slowly -- it's a fright film that's uncharacteristically patient and superbly crafted.

Has something on its mind and the testicular and/or ovarian fortitude necessary to go out with an unexpected, cathartic bang.

An earnest and well-made character-based horror flick that's simply not all that interesting.

...belongs alongside the horror genre's myriad of other needless sequels...

Not a single aspect of this film suggests that anyone involved in the production cared.

What do you call those guys who paint themselves silver and then stand still like statues? This has one of those. A threatening one. So, if that sounds up your alley...

a tedious, underwhelming cash grab if there ever was one - a cynical attempt to use the iconic bent-over-backwards image of a possessed girl and the name recognition of the first movie to swindle people out of their money.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4

There's a lot to be said for restraint in a horror film, but the filmmakers went for too far of an extreme here.

Gone is the shaky-cam dynamic. Gone is the whole "devil inside" ideal, and gone is any reason to care or watch.

June 10, 2013
It all builds towards another sequel-ready ending, so expect this nonsensically titled series to run and run.

The List
June 10, 2013
Writer/director Ed Gass-Donnelly's film offers little ironic edge or incisive imagery, pushing far too hard with an unpleasant emphasis on sexuality, and ending up as a by-the-numbers rehash of the original film's weakest elements.
