For the second year I have attended the Toronto After Dark film festival at the Bloor Cinema. This year, I decided to check out The Last Exorcism, which is produced by Eli Roth. In was a fun screening, since both Eli Roth and the stars Patrick Fabian and Ashley Bell were in attendance for a Q&A following the film.
This is a hard film to talk about without giving too much away, however I do say that I thought that the documentary style helped to emphasize the realism the film was going for. I also have to say that I thought that the ending was quite unexpected and the film would be worth seeing for the ending alone.
The film was followed by a Q&A by Eli Roth and the cast members. After watching this Q&A, I can confidently say that Eli Roth is a true film geek. I also have to say that I was impressed when it was said that all the contortionist movements performed by Ashley Bell in the film with 100% real (no CGI).
Overall I have to say it was an enjoyable night.
