‘The Last Exorcism’ Star on What’s Really Scary

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

Ashley Bell earned a nomination for “Best Scared-as-S**t Performance” at the MTV Movie Awards for her portrayal of the possessed Nell Sweetzer in The Last Exorcism, produced by our buddy Eli Roth. Now, before The Last Exorcism 2 hits theaters, she’s releasing an exclusive video for PETA that’s scarier than anything even Eli could come up with.

A longtime animal rights activist and vegetarian, Ashley believes that everyone, even if they are scared, should see the videos of PETA’s undercover investigations: “[W]hen you really see pictures and videos of what animals go through on a day-to-day basis, you can’t get those images out of your head.”  

Halloween may be over, but every day is a nightmare for animals on factory farms, in laboratories, and on fur farms. Share Ashley’s new video and encourage others to exorcise cruelty.
