Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "In 2010 Daniel Stamm directed what I consider to be a decent little surprise horror flick. The Last Exorcism takes the tired found footage formula and mixes it with the already drawn out and lifeless exorcism sub-genre. The result was something that I completely skipped in theaters, but found on home video and was mostly impressed. It’s nowhere near perfect quality, but it manages to suck the air out of a few particular scenes and the acting by most is top notch for this kind of stuff. The Last Exorcism Part II however takes the series in a completely different direction, one that’s nowhere near as effective or even remotely creepy. It ditches the found footage angle and by doing so falls victim to sequelitis."
