'The Last Exorcism' Leads American Box Office

The Last Exorcism, produced by "torture-porn auteur," Eli Roth, topped the American Box Office this weekend, raking in far more than expected. The movie is said to have been filmed in Louisiana for about $1 million. With another $15+ million in prints and advertising, The Last Exorcism has already made back its money, with an estimated $21 million take.

Although I have not seen the movie, reviews say the first half centers on a faked possession, making the latter half of the film -- which is supposed to show a real possession -- that much harder to take. Mixed reviews have all said the same thing: The first part of the film undermines the intended horror of the latter half.
