We Summon the Darkness is a wickedly funny and delicious piece of genre cinema. It's a horror film that doesn't necessarily aim to scare or terrorise us but to take us on a gnarly rollercoaster ride along with its doomed characters.

A story of metalhead (or Satanist?) boys vs. girls in 1980s Christian America; perfect set-up for a slasher, but this is not so formulaic by a long shot.

A rollicking B-movie satire about those who truly have blood on their hands.

We Summon The Darkness lacked believable performances, an interesting story, or anything resembling excitement for me, falling into too many clichés to engage.

A gruesomely good riff on a beloved genre that seamlessly manages to mesh the familiar with the refreshing.

We Summon the Darkness is very lacking. It borrows elements from a lot of different brackets....80s culture, metal, kidnapping/torture, etc. But if gives half-hearted attempts at each one of these elements. And the 80s authenticity is quite lacking.

A fun throwback horror tale about three girls, three guys, a rock concert, and a mysterious killer on the loose... maybe.

Despite the title, there is nothing supernatural about this fluffy horror, just a bit of a murder spree of predictable boredom.

This slice of heavy metal horror is never particular clever or deep, but it's entertaining enough.

Director Marc Meyers is able to establish a balance between horror and comedy that threads the needle right throughout most of the movie.

I'd definitely recommend checking out We Summon the Darkness, as it is yet another bold and compelling effort from Meyers, who proves with this latest project that he's truly one of the most intriguing filmmakers working today.

Directed by Marc Meyers from a script by Alan Trezza, We Summon the Darkness starts in a familiar yet subversive fashion before drilling into its deeper themes exploring the fetishization of faith.

Yeah, it's raunchy and campy, but there's nothing wrong with that. It's just as fun as it should be. [Full review in Spanish].

Satantic panic horror will never go out of style, and this movie is filled with style. There's a lot to enjoy here for genre fans.

'We Summon the Darkness' draws forth gory horror.

The young actors are more than up to the task here, especially Daddario, whose 1970s-era Ivory Girl looks and pitch-perfect timing and facial expressions make her character a compelling ringleader for this fun and original slasher/romp

Alan Trezza's script indulges in trashy movie cliches while upending them, as dialog spins the story around. But a cheesy attempt to add a thematic slant never takes hold.

That is where it loses its momentum a bit, and the satire element is not mined nearly enough. But the cast are great and it is good, silly fun.

The half-baked 'Heavy Metal Parking Lot' conversation at the film's beginning do little to erase how boring it becomes when it settles into predictable bloodletting and slashing.

We Summon the Darkness is the kind of heavy metal horror we've been longing for these last couple of months.
