‘The Last Exorcism’ deemed a huge letdown!

The-Last-Exorcism-Ashley-Bell-24-8-10-kc[1]

Well I didn’t run the theatres like everyone else who drank the Eli Roth koolaid that “The Last Exorcism” was the film to see. Though I will say that after my viewing tonight, Eli just lost a bit of credibility in my book for praising such a blase-save for-rental film that really failed on the possession wagon. The movie that was before named “Cotten” found its way into the hands that thought the world was … Continue reading
