trailer break: ‘The Last Exorcism’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

I only just watched this trailer: I hadn’t seen it before I actually saw the film yesterday. And it’s an interesting example of how misleading trailers can be — but I’m not sure if this one is misleading in a bad way. This trailer doesn’t even hint at the most intriguing aspect of the film… at least, what I found to be the most intriguing aspect. I suspect that those who go into this looking for an Eli Roth film with pea-soup vomit and twisting heads and such will be disappointed — I’d never even have guessed from the film itself that Eli Roth (whom I have mostly not been a fan of) had anything to do with this movie.

I’ll be curious to hear what audiences think of this film after it opens, particularly those who were drawn by this trailer.

The Last Exorcism opens in the U.S. and Canada on August 27, and in and the U.K. on September 3.
