Directed by Daniel Stamm, The Last Exorcism (see the trailer here) is the story of Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian), a preacher living in the US state of Louisiana, who has carried out many exorcisms. The thing is they were all shams. No one was ever exorcised because no one was ever possessed.

When two filmmakers, Iris Reisen (Iris Bahr), and Daniel Moskowitz (Adam Grimes), ask him to participate in a documentary exposing exorcism as a fraud, he agrees. They make their way to the farm of Louis Sweetzer (Louis Herthum) who has asked Marcus to exorcise his daughter, Nell (Ashley Bell), who he claims is possessed by demons.

As Marcus prepares to fool the family into believing he has redeemed the girl though – by planting various electronic devices around their house – bizarre and inexplicable events begin to occur…

“Buried” movie passes giveaway

Friday, 8 October, 2010

Buried movie poster

Buried (see the trailer and read my review) is the latest feature of Spanish filmmaker Rodrigo Cortés, a thriller in set in present day Iraq.

Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is not ready to die. But when he wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival.

Buried with only a mobile phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited.

Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time – fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.
