Goofs
Despite being a film composed of "found footage," several scenes in the film are scored in the typical horror movie fashion (screeching violins, thumping bass, acoustic guitars). This would presumably be absent from a collection of footage showing such disturbing events, and obviously could not have been added in post production by the characters.

Supposedly is filmed with a single camera, but for several dialogues, courts are seen as being of two different cameras.

Q
Why does Caleb write the note telling Cotton not to leave Nell alone with Louis?
A
Earlier in the film, when Cotton talked about the demon Abalam to Nell's father Louis (Louis Herthum), he says that the only way out of possession is death. Consequently, Nell's brother Caleb (Caleb Landry Jones) fears that Louis intends to kill her if the demon cannot be exorcised.
Q
What is "The Last Exorcism" about?
A
Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian), an evangelistic preacher with a history of faking exorcisms, has come to realize that many people, including children, are killed during exorcisms performed to drive the devil from their bodies. He decides to perform one more random exorcism on 16-year old Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) and invites a filming crew along in order to make a documentary of how he is able to trick people into believing his staged exorcisms are real, so that they thereby cure themselves. However, this last exorcism takes a nasty turn.
