Micro Review: The Last Exorcism

So much of this mockumentary is so well made and brilliantly acted that one can't help but be disappointed when it takes such a giant misstep during the final 10 minutes. It's not that the ending is bad, it just takes away from all that was good during the first hour and 15 minutes. Up until then we're served a riveting and downright creepy tale of a charlatan preacher trying to rid a girl of what appears to be demons of a more personal nature than supernatural. Patrick Fabian is riveting as Cotton, our "exorcist," and Ashley Bell is awesome as the "possessed" child. Too bad the filmmakers couldn't come up with an ending the both of them deserved. A Bad review on this one.
