Films: The Last Exorcism (2010), The Last Exorcism Part 2 (2013)
Alias: Neil Margaret Sweetzer
Location: Haunted home
Summary: It is an unspoken rule of cinema that all exorcisms are utterly awful affairs that end with at least one person going insane and/or dying. Why should a film ostensibly dealing with a final one be any different?
History: A powerful demon worshiped by cults all around, Abalem set its sights on local farmgirl Nell in order to produce its offspring. And it's really been going off without a hitch so far. It helps that at NO POINT IN THE FIRST FILM is the cult even implied, so going undercover is no issue. Then an exorcist who doesn't actually believe in exorcism shows up. This should be interesting.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After the cult is revealed and Abalem's child is born, a string of events dealing with the fallout ends with Nell and Abalem deciding to work together to bring forth the end of days. The last time we saw them, they were setting buildings on fire...
Powers/Abilities: Possession, shapeshifting, and if in perfect synch with a host, pyrokinesis.
Weakness: Holy rituals.
Scariness Factor: 4-We don't actually see Abalem's true form ever, but we do see what it's capable of. Those contortions don't look fun in the slightest. Neither does all the murder and fire-starting either.
Trivia: -Abalem is a servant of Paimon, a Goetic demon king said to have immense knowledge, as well as some rulership over Hell. Abalem is often paired up with Bebal as one of two high-ranking spirits that follow Paimon but are not always at his side.
-The first film encountered quite a bit of mockery, as it ends by showing us a URL to a site that doesn't even work anymore. In other words, the official ending no longer exists. Of course, that was after the controversy of one of the posters showing a blood-stained girl above a cross, angering many a religious person for just how blasphemous it looked.
