Exeter (2015) Review:

With two average remakes at his counter (Friday the 13th 2009 and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003), Marcus Nispel isn’t a director that makes me want to watch his movies. Yet, when he tries to get away from remakes, the result isn’t that bad.

Exeter is a teen version of exorcism movies, kind of like a blending of Night of the Demons meets The Exorcist. Whereas modern exorcism movies are all very dark, this one has more of 80s’ fun feeling to it. It features funny teen characters who don’t hesitate to throw a couple of jokes in between two exorcism scenes. The movie is not scary, but does have a few unsettling horror scenes here and there.

On the less bright side, the movie tend to drag along too much, and feels a little repetitive towards the end. It also seems to have neglected any notion of credibility or skepticism. The kids get to see one of the first possessed for less than two seconds, and immediately decides to call a priest… all this within the first 20 minutes of the movie.


Still, it is a nice addition to the genre, and one that stands out from all the multitude of “found footage possession” movies that were released these years and that feel all the same.
