We Summon the Darkness (2020)



Critic Consensus: We Summon the Darkness makes the most of its rather pedestrian plot with palpable affection for genre formula, an appealing cast, and a sharp sense of humor.

Movie Info

The killing spree of murderous Satanists has already led to 18 deaths throughout America's Heartland. Three best friends Alexis (Alexandra Daddario), Val and Beverly embark on a road trip to a heavy metal music festival. Naive, they bond with three seemingly fun-loving dudes and soon the group heads off to Alexis' country home, a very secluded place, for an afterparty. What should be a night of fun and youthful debauchery may instead take a dark, deadly turn. With killers on the loose, can anyone be trusted?

Critic Reviews for We Summon the Darkness

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (7)

The proceedings are not entirely unamusing in their lurid way, but they're also not nearly as clever as the filmmakers believed or hoped they would be.

April 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The twist/reveal happens too early in the proceedings, bursting the mystery bubble and resulting in a long, drawn-out anticlimactic second-half that's disappointingly generic.

April 10, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It's like a good Blumhouse movie, told in elegantly framed images, and though the situation is extreme, the violent action is staged in a manner that one might describe as the understated version of over-the-top.

"We Summon the Darkness" is fine throughout...

April 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Not today, Satan. Not today.

April 8, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

An appealing cast and slick period production values make this an entertaining enough retro bloodbath.
