Since it started to be seen in some genre film festivals, We Summon the Darkness (2019) was in the mouth of the audience. It can’t be considered a cult title, and it very very rarely will appear in the list of best movies of 2019. But, yet, it won the respect of being one of those new films worth seeing. So it is good news to know the movie will have a domestic video release this summer.
We Summon the Darkness (2019) is a horror-thriller set in Indiana, in 1988. On the way to a heavy metal concert, Alexis Butler and her two friends Val and Bev hear a news report of a local murder believed to be tied to a series of satanic killings. After the show, the girls invite three guys to join them for an afterparty at the estate owned by Alexis’s father, a fire-and-brimstone preacher. A night of fun and youthful debauchery takes a deadly turn as bodies begin to pile up, with each side thinking the other hides the killer.
Marc Meyers, responsible for the very interesting My Friend Dahmer (2017), is the director of We Summon the Darkness (2019). The screenplay was penned by Alan Trezza, writer of Burying the Ex (2014), which Joe Dante directed. Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson, Amy Forsyth, Johnny Knoxville, Keean Johnson, Logan Miller, Allison McAtee, and Austin Swift form the main cast. The movie has been Rated R for bloody violence, pervasive language, some drug use, and sexual references.
We Summon the Darkness (2019) premiered at Fantastic Fest on September 21, 2019. After that, it was also part of the line-up in Screamfest Horror Film Festival, Frightfest Halloween, Molins Horror Film Festival and Splat!FilmFest Horror Film Festival. After that, it was released on Video on Demand via Saban Films. Now, it has been scheduled to come out on DVD and Blu-Ray on June 9 by Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Here you can watch the official trailer for We Summon the Darkness (2019).
