Actress Ashley Bell has an unusual ability. She has what's called hypermobility, which is a one-word way of saying that she can contort her body into some seemingly impossible shapes. This skill worked well in her favor when she starred in The Last Exorcism, a movie where her character was demonically possessed. Not only was she able to pull off some very creepy moves without the help of any CGI, her ability to bend backwards and practically fold herself in half became the scary image featured on the poster.
Now the first one-sheet for The Last Exorcism Part II has arrived and has the same basic idea, but this time there's a bit of a numerical twist. Yahoo! has posted the new artwork and you can see it in high-res over there or scope it out below.
And just for the sake of comparison here is the poster for the first movie:
I can't help but feel that some Photoshop skills have been applied here, but I'm honestly not sure I can say it definitively. The shadow completing the "2" is probably fake, but I simply don't know just how far Bell can push her flexibility. That said, if this is real then I am effectively terrified. If not, then this just looks like a riff on the posters that were used for the Saw sequels.
The Last Exorcism Part II, directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly, will be in theaters on March 1st, courtesy of CBS Films. To learn more about the movie, head over to our Blend Film Database.
