13. The Last Exorcism (2010)

The Last Exorcism

is an intimate and chilling portrait of Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) who has lost his faith but still agrees to perform an exorcism on a young girl named Nell (Ashley Bell) under the watch of a documentary film crew . Though it does contain some of the formulaic aspects of your standard possession story, the script is well-paced, not only delivering the mandatory scares, but asking its viewers to reflect on religious and socio-economic questions. And the ending… though hardcore horror audiences might see it coming, is effective and chilling.
