This is just the sort of high-energy, tongue-in-cheek blood-soaked mayhem in the name of the devil that gets my heart thumping. Reminiscent of last year’s Satanic Panic, We Summon the Darkness looks like it’s going to be a nonstop blast of manic horror power.
The trailer alone gives us pentagrams, animal skulls, leather-clad punk chicks, a televised preacher, heavy metal, a dude on fire, over-the-top weaponry, and the promise of plenty high octane violence to come. I am very much sold.
We Summon the Darkness sees Alexis (Alexandra Daddario) and her girlfriends head to the property of her preacher father (Johnny Knoxville) for a night of partying following a heavy metal concert. Of course, reports of grisly satanic murders have dominated the radio waves, and these heavy metal gals end up in a fight for their lives.
The trailer alone gave me a Monster Energy blast of adrenaline, so I can’t wait to see what devilish destruction ensues when We Summon the Darkness hits VOD and theaters on April 10, 2020.
