Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The only thing finally astonishing about The Last Exorcism is its goofiness."
‑ Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies
"A creepy, smartly written and very entertaining low-budget chiller."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"The Last Exorcism is completely boring, devoid of any scares, tension or unease and has one of the worst endings ever. Avoid at all costs."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"Even if you take "The Last Exorcism" on its own terms, you're going to be in for quite an uneventful movie."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"If you make a film about exorcism, you better be ready to be compared to one of the best films ever made. Surprisingly, the film holds its own in that regard."
‑ Brian Holcomb,
"The latest entry in the pseudo-documentary horror film sweepstakes, The Last Exorcism has its terrifying moments and its silly ones."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"An unusually restrained and genuinely eerie little movie perched at the intersection of faith, folklore and female puberty."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It's disappointing--if not exactly surprising--when at the halfway point the film turns into THE LINDA BLAIR WITCH PROJECT."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Its mature focus on characterization really sets the film apart."
‑ John Gholson, Cinematical
"Does a great job of sustaining tension by distracting you with (get this) interesting characters and a novel approach."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"The credibility of faux-documentary filmmaking relies on clear plotting and convincing, semi-improvised acting."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Stamm creates an anxious psychological horror that's vaguely familiar yet refreshingly original."
‑ Sean O'Connell, Washington Post
"A fairly absorbing pseudo-documentary demonic-possession flick with all the bodily contortions and jittery camerawork you'd expect."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"The seams are obvious in this faux documentary, but the thrills are fairly genuine."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"...ultimately fares a whole lot better in its first half than in its second..."
‑ David Nusair,
