THE LAST EXORCISM is a horror film, made in a fictional documentary style, telling the story of a preacher and his camera crew who travel to a Louisiana farm to perform an exorcism on a teenage girl.

Threat

The sense of strong threat, which is sustained throughout much of the film, increases as the story progresses. The teenage girl suffers increasingly frequent periods of possession, which are accompanied by harrowing sequences showing her distress and her mental and emotional vulnerability.

Violence

There are several scenes of strong bloody horror and violence in the film, which are relatively brief but realistic. These include sight of the possessed teenage girl breaking her own fingers, accompanied by crunchy bone-breaking sounds. Another scene shows the aftermath of a face stabbing, with sight of a bloody gash and a piece of flesh flapping as the wound bleeds. Finally, there is a ritualistic sequence in which a newborn baby is taken from its mother, raised up to the sky and thrown into the flames as a sacrifice.

The film also contains some moderate sex references, including a demon speaking through a teenage girl asking 'would you like a blowing job', and sight of the girl starting to undo the buttons on her nightdress in a provocative manner. There is also some suggestion that a teenage girl has been raped and/or been the victim of incest but these are not expanded upon.
