Some of the most fun we had at Fantastic Fest last year was watching the super blasty blast of a film that is the satanic and subversive We Summon the Darkness.
The synopsis goes like this:
the killing spree of murderous Satanists has already led to 18 deaths throughout America’s Heartland. Three best friends Alexis, 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?
The film plays out and subverts a ton of genre tropes and Alexandra Daddario, Amy Forsyth and Maddie Hasson all absolutely rule. Plus, its a fun return to Satanic panic of the 80s.
Director Marc Meyers (My Friend Dahmer) directs from a screenplay by Alan Trezza.
You can see We Summon the Darkness beginning April 10 in select theaters and on VOD.
