Well, apparently the “last exorcism” wasn’t actually the final one. Eli Roth is back to produce the second installment in the series, and he’s not the only one. Ashley Bell has returned to reprise her role as Nell Sweetzer, the southern belle who may or may not have been possessed in the first film (based on your interpretation of the ending). Whatever you believe, the series has returned for a sequel, only this time, instead of found footage, director Ed Gass-Donnelly has chosen do to a straight up horror flick.
In this story, Nell travels to New Orleans, Louisiana, where she attempts to live out her life as a normal teenager in a group home. However, she begins to notice small signs of trouble, as she receives strange phone calls, and faces threatening confrontations with her peers, and even her preacher. Soon, she becomes convinced that the demon Abalam has followed her to her home away from home, and fears that she may never escape his possessive grasp.
