okay

The main character talks about sex with her new pals, she hears a couple having sex in the hotel where she is working and gets turned on, the entity that is not visible is un lacing her night gown and she has an orgasm in her sleep. Towards the ending there is a lot of scenes that may be violent or disturbing to some viewers, a lot of scenes of terror, language is very brief nothing you wouldn't hear in school frequently.

13 and up.

this horror second sequel movie based on the first film the last exorcism part 2 is definelty not worth watching it is it worth the money time or disturbing images of nightmares that will follow it is recommended for your older teens only and parents you need to know that this second sequel the last exorcism 2 has some intense violence and some disturbing scenes shown all though there's no sex scene or nudity shown there is some moaning sounds of couples having sex in a hotel and Nell hears it and she enjoys it and an unseen force unties some of the laces on nells nightgown while she is lifted up in the air there's also some mild language used.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Director Ed Gass-Donnelly impresses more with his economical filmmaking here than with his skill at storytelling or terror. Actress Ashley Bell returns as Nell, but otherwise, The Last Exorcism Part II is almost entirely different from its predecessor. This movie no longer uses the "found footage" angle (a shot of a dropped video camera on the ground signals this), and it develops Nell into a fully rounded character; last time, the focus was on the "phony" priest.

Looking frail and halfway ruined, the fragile, lovely Nell calls upon delicate reserves of strength to navigate her new world, and she's an appealing character. But the movie subjects her to too many routine, rudimentary jump-shock moments for her character to develop into anything memorable. What's more, not very many of the scares are particularly new or effective.
