We Summon the Darkness Reviews

April 10, 2020
The film manages to pull off something of a surprise switcheroo early in its fairly short running time, and it does so successfully.
April 10, 2020
It's done everything right when it comes to period detail-and it's also got some surprises.
April 10, 2020
Skewers a long-established trope about the nature of victims in horror as well as calling attention to the noxious idea of the bad ass so-called Final Girl. Even if it doesn't go much deeper than that, it's a fun movie for what it is.
April 10, 2020
We Summon The Darkness is a wickedly fun and delightfully devilish thrill ride led by electric performances from Alexandra Daddario and Maddie Hasson.
April 10, 2020
We Summon the Darkness's impressive confidence makes the movie worth recommending on its own.
April 9, 2020
Fun, efficiently paced, and subversive.
April 9, 2020
Over-the-top slasher will entertain teens; gore, cursing.
April 9, 2020
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.
April 9, 2020
"We Summon the Darkness" is fine throughout...
April 9, 2020
We Summon the Darkness is chock full of classic genre tropes. The fetching coeds, satanic rituals, and heavy metal soundtrack get a completely different take here.
April 9, 2020
It's a bit disappointing to lose the fun '80s metal aesthetic, but the movie is slow in the lead-up to the twist, and once the true plot becomes apparent, the pacing becomes a lot livelier.
April 9, 2020
A tidy presentation of evil behavior, with a few surprises to keep viewers glued to a story that's big on prolonged scenes of suffering.
April 8, 2020
Enormously fun to watch, thanks to sharp dialogue, good performances, and a devilish sense of mischief.
April 8, 2020
Alexandra Daddario is great here, though all three of the leading ladies turn in memorable work in a film that knows how to have a good time.
April 8, 2020
Meyers creates a nearly believable atmosphere for his spare, occasionally comical dive into Ozzy-inspires Satanism.
April 6, 2020
A strong cast and unexpected reveals make it stand above its Satanic Panic peers, but it plays things too safe to be especially memorable.
April 6, 2020
We Summon the Darkness reveals itself to be a fun ride when all is said and done because [no character] on-screen knows what he/she is doing.
April 6, 2020
An appealing cast and slick period production values make this an entertaining enough retro bloodbath.
February 9, 2020
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.
November 6, 2019
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.
