Movie Review: The Invoking 2


The Invoking 2 on DVD

Available today on DVD from RLJ Entertainment is the horror flick The Invoking 2.

Featuring terrifying tales of the supernatural, The Invoking 2 is directed by Jamie DeWolf (Smoked), Jay Holben (Black Tar Road), Corey Norman (The Hanover House), Adam O’Brien (ZombieWorld), Patrick Rea (Nailbiter), and first time director Jamie Root. The film stars Allen Lowman (Bonnie & Clyde vs. Dracula), Meghan McNicol (“Motives & Murders: Cracking The Case”) and Chara Gannett (Justice is Mind). 

Although hundreds of disturbing paranormal events occur every year, most of these chilling encounters go unreported… until now. Bear witness as hapless victims experience the unspeakable terror of confronting demonic forces, murderous poltergeists and other evil entities that are dead set on claiming their souls. Descend into an abyss of waking nightmares as these bloodthirsty, malevolent spirits seek to possess their prey and drag them—kicking and screaming—to hell.

This is not one film but rather several short films.

Each film starts off telling you the city and state where the paranormal event occurred.

There is a variety of stories – some better than others. Stories include ghosts found walking on a dark road, a women plagued by evil spirits (which are actually her – just evil), a abandoned “nut house,” and a girl who hears scratching inside the walls of the cabin her and her friends are staying at.

Some stories are much better than others. A few left me scratching my head because they ended so abruptly and you really had no ideas what just happened.

A few of the stories would make for excellent camp fire tales. In fact, they reminded me of the kinds of stories you would tell sitting around a camp fire deep in the woods enjoying roasted marshmallows. You know the kind of stories I am referring to – the kind that make you sleep with the light on inside your tent because every bump in the night makes you think some homicidal maniac is out to kill you.

The very last story looked to be the best one of them all – but it was the shortest (only a few minutes). It’s one of the ones that ended abruptly. Maybe there will be an Invoking 3 which will start off where the last story left off?

Look at this photo? This is a screen shot from the film. Doesn’t this creep you out?

This was the last film – the one that ended in just a few minutes. Ugh! They should have expanded this one and made it one of the features in this film.

Die hard horror fans might find a few of the mini films really good. Aside from the man in the mask (above) my other favorite is the woman who took a film maker into an abandoned “nut house,” because he was looking for a place to shoot his next film. I must say what happens to the woman in the end is pretty cool (and gross).

This is an ideal horror movie/DVD for a teen/’tween sleep over. This will certainly get a lot of screams and make them all sleep under the covers. Ha Ha.

This DVD had some great stories and some less than great stories. I think most people who watch it will have their most favorite and least favorite.

I didn’t see any bonus features, unless I missed them.

Look for The Invoking 2 where ever movies are sold.
