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?

It also hinges on a big plot twist, so all I will say for now is that it's the best Satanic Panic-inspired horror movie I have seen this year, and there have been several.

There is a lot to like here. However, without the energy and consistent pacing to keep us engaged, the movie flounders in points and races to others.

steadily upends conventional prejudices (& cinematic clichés) concerning gender, class and religion - even if, after a relatively early reveal of the Big Twist, there is nowhere left to go beyond standard cat-and-mouse manoeuvres and chaotic farce.

A hip young cast and compelling narrative combine to make We Summon the Darkness a vibrant and cool blend of Funny Games and Scream.

November 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A throwback horror comedy that offers up just enough surprises and a pair of scene-stealing performances by Hasson and Daddario that will make you throw up a pair of devil horns and hail Satan.

October 2, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

We Summon The Darkness is delightfully madcap, zany and enjoyable, with exceptionally memorable and entertaining characters, particularly Daddario and Hasson...This satanic, heavy metal horror-comedy is everything...audiences never knew they wanted
