We Summon the Darkness

Critics 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.

Critic Reviews for We Summon the Darkness

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (46) | Rotten (21)

  • 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.
