“Believe In Him.” That’s the shivering tagline for Lionsgate’s forthcoming The Last Exorcism, which arrives in theaters August 27th from horror director-turned-producer Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) and Strike Entertainment. Directed by Daniel Stamm, the horror film is said to feature startling imagery, realistic in nature. A glimpse of this is portrayed in our exclusive debut of the official one sheet where a possessed girl experiences back-breaking pain. The poster is easily one of Lionsgate’s most eye-catching to date. Dig on it below and tell us what you think! In addition, take a trip to the official Facebook page to check out the first exclusive image from the film coming soon.
New official synopsis:
“When he arrives on the rural Louisiana farm of Louis Sweetzer, the Reverend Cotton Marcus expects to perform just another routine “exorcism” on a disturbed religious fanatic. An earnest fundamentalist, Sweetzer has contacted the charismatic preacher as a last resort, certain his teenage daughter Nell is possessed by a demon who must be exorcized before their terrifying ordeal ends in unimaginable tragedy.
Buckling under the weight of his conscience after years of parting desperate believers with their money, Cotton and his crew plan to film a confessionary documentary of this, his last exorcism. But upon arriving at the already blood drenched family farm, it is soon clear that nothing could have prepared him for the true evil he encounters there. Now, too late to turn back, Reverend Marcus’ own beliefs are shaken to the core when he and his crew must find a way to save Nell – and themselves – before it is too late.
THE LAST EXORCISM is written by Huck Botko & Andrew Gurland and directed by Daniel Stamm. Strike Entertainment and STUDIOCANAL present an Arcade Pictures production. ”
