Lionsgate Experiences Roth’s “Last Exorcism”

Lionsgate has scored the U.S. distribution rights to the horror thriller “The Last Exorcism” says Screen Daily.

Shot like a documentary, the film follows a dishonourable evangelical minister (Patrick Fabian) performing his final fraudulent exorcism.

Faced with pure evil, the man must summon his faith to overcome the most profound challenge of his life and save a young girl.

German helmer Daniel Stamm (“A Necessary Death”) directs while Eli Roth is producing. The film, previously titled “Cotton”, premieres next month at SXSW in Texas.
