StudioCanal’s secretive The Last Exorcism 2 made an appearance at the American Film Market in Santa Monica this past week. In the film, Ashley Bell returns as Nell Sweetzer, the possessed young girl, with Ed Gass-Donnelly is directing.
While we exclusively broke the story to you, here’s the official synopsis:
“Eli Roth & Strike Entertainment bring us an even more terrifying and bigger scale sequel to The Last Exorcism that grossed $70 million worldwide. It looks like Nell Sweetzer’s last exorcism was not foolproof. She is back… and so are her demons.
Continuing where the first film left off, teenage Nell Sweetzer is found dirty and terrified in the woods having just escaped a demon ritual in which a cult helped her give birth to a demon baby. Confused and scared, Nell is examined by doctors but she doesn’t remember much about the previous few months except that as a result of everything, her family is now dead. She is moved into Davreaux – a girls’ halfway house in New Orleans, where she will try to put her life back together with the help of the therapist, Frank Merle. She even begins to date a boy named Chris and starts a job at a local hotel.
But something doesn’t feel right to Nell. She is being sought after by the demon who possessed her in the first Last Exorcism. It wants Nell, but in a different way than before…”
