The Last Exorcism
Alright, so the plot is simple enough, a "documentary" film crew follows Patrick Fabian as a preacher who is set on provign that exorcisms are a huge scam. He agrees to one final exorcism as a ploy to teach the film crew and subsequent viewers what a sham the whole process is. He picks the first request and it sends him to a small town in Louisiana, where a family is plagued by slaughtered animals, which could be the hands of their manic son and their sheltered daughter. Between scenes, the story told is much darker and much more slow than a traditional horror film, but is told in a rather classic way. I was into this movie until the end, where the huge "twist" was a big let-down and the story took a huge dive, aiming for the poor imagination of its target audience. A great idea that had no where to go but up, yet somehow it took a huge leap and fell off a cliff.
