The Last Exorcism

de Daniel Stamm


After several years of performing exorcisms, all false, the charismatic but afflicted reverend Cotton believes he’s found a form of redemption when he allows a team of reporters to make a documentary that will expose his lie. But in a remote farm in Louisiana, his last exorcism might just be the first that’s the real deal. Right when the faux documentary with its shaky camera was about to produce an unsatisfactory feeling of déjà vu, Daniel Stamm appears to put things in their place and take terror to a new stage. Undoubtedly one of the season’s big surprises.
