A remote farmhouse in rural Louisiana. A group of livestock slaughtered and eviscerated. A young, bloodied girl chained to a bed while her distraught father stands over her with a shotgun. 'The Last Exorcism,' produced by Eli Roth ('Cabin Fever,' 'Hostel' 1 and 2), has all of these things and more.

It's a disturbing morality tale about a girl (Ashley Bell) who may be possessed by the devil. Her father (Patrick Fabian) will stop at nothing to save her soul, even if it means killing her, and the pastor who comes with a documentary crew to cast out her demons doesn't believe in God. He practices fake exorcisms and hopes to document what happens there to debunk the "myth" of possession. And soon, it's hell on Earth.

It's unlikely subject matter for Roth, who is best known for extreme gore; he says he enjoyed the idea of making a film that's scary and creepy but has much more to offer than shrieks. Moviefone sat down with him to discuss exorcism, Satan and what he thinks about the 3-D trend in movies.
