The Last Exorcism: Part 2

Here’s a question: Why do demons always bend people backwards?

If you look at demons through cinematic history, like The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, The Rite and so on and so forth, the demons usually feel the need to bend their hosts over backwards. Why not bend them forward? Why not wrench them sideways? How about just stand them up straight?

But no, they’re all about twisting the humans into grotesque shapes. And that trend is continuing with this new poster for The Last Exorcism: Part II.

If you’re all about seeing humans bent into interesting shapes, check out the movie when it hits theaters March 1, 2013.

The Last Exorcism: Part 2


  1. I would say they’re probably bent backwards because what could be more scary then bending backwards and not having any control? 🙂 I saw the original Exorcist when I was kid. Scared the daylights out of me.

  2. it’s dramatic visual shorthand for the scary actions of an outside (and hostile) force, going back at least as far as medieval paintings. the poster designers may or may not know that, but it still works.
