Continuing where the first film left off, teenage Nell Sweetzer is found dirty and terrified in the woods having just escaped a demon ritual in which a cult helped her give birth to a demon baby.  Confused and scared, Nell is examined by doctors but she doesn’t remember much about the previous few months except that as a result of everything, her family is now dead.  She is moved into Davreaux – a girls’ halfway house in New Orleans, where she will try to put her life back together with the help of the therapist, Frank Merle.  She even begins to date a boy named Chris and starts a job at a local hotel.  But something doesn’t feel right to Nell.  She is being sought after by the demon who possessed her in the first LAST EXORCISM.  It wants Nell, but in a different way than before…

  • Filmed in New Orleans.
  • Alternate synopsis: Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found alone and terrified in the woods.  Back in the relative safety of civilization, Nell realizes that she can't remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family.  Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean herlast exorcism was just the beginning.
  • Originally thought to be titled Beginning of the End: The Last Exorcism 2.
  • Directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly (Small Town Murder Songs).
  • One of the producers was quoted saying: "As you can see from other recent films, fans around the world are fascinated by this subject matter, and we want to go deeper and darker this time. The first film worked great as a PG-13 psychological film, but now we want to go R-rated and show the true horror of what this subject matter offers. The biggest creative challenge will be coming up with the right title!"
  • Studiocanal EVP of international distribution, Harold Van Lier, was quoted saying: “We are horrified to bring to the marketplace the eagerly awaited sequel to our 2010 worldwide hit. This much bigger scale movie will unravel a profoundly scarier chapter to Nell’s battle between good and evil. God have mercy.”
  • Despite the previous film being PG-13 it's said that the sequel is aiming for an R-rating.
  • Actress Ashley Bell returns as "Nell Sweetzer."
  • The title will likely change sometime during production.
  • The obvious sequel to 2010's The Last Exorcism.
