The Last Exorcism (2010)
A priest who lost his faith (Patrick Fabian) agrees to perform one final exorcism for a camera crew (Iris Bahr and Adam Grimes) in order to expose the practice as a fraud.
First of all, I do not think the ending is as bad as so many reviewers have written.
Maybe it's because I don't see enough horror films, but I did not see it coming.
However, the real reason I was pulled in was the characters, particularly the priest Cotton Marcus.
Fabian gives an effective, low-key performance of a good, conflicted man who begins to rediscover his calling when faced with a truly supernatural menace.
There are none of the out-there grotesque scenes that was suggested by the marketing, which may help account for the disappointment of so many.
I consider this another success for the shaky camera genre.
