The Last Exorcism Gets Viral And Rated!


Lionsgate has begun the viral marketing campaign for the Eli Roth-produced The Last Exorcism that is heading into theaters on August 27th. It includes the launch of an official website and a Twitter for Reverend Marcus and his Church of St. Marks that you can follow. The website has a bio for exorcist Marcus Cotton, as well as sermon and scripture excerpts. You can also buy exorcism supplies and fill out an application for an exorcism. The MPAA has also announced a PG-13 rating for the film “for disturbing violent content and terror, some sexual references and thematic material.” After the jump, you can check out some more info on the film.

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.
