# horror and terror / violence / metal / satanists / devil / girl power / blood / alcohol / Polish premiere


If you’re listening to metal, know that the devil is already interested in you.


1988, Alexis, Val and Bev are on their way to a metal concert. From a distance you can see that they are dangerous, lively, feisty and dark girls. They wear leather jackets, strong makeup and inverted crosses. They look forward to the upcoming adventure with excitement and absolutely nothing will spoil their positive attitude and their anticipation of the crazy time ahead… even news in the local media about a series of macabre occult murders. Actually, there’s nothing to worry about if they’re on the same team as the psychopathic killers. Just before the concert, the girls meet three nice boys. The sparks begin to fly between Bev and one of the boys. The two groups of friends soon get along and decide to spend time together listening to some hard music, just after the concert they head to the after party. They go to Alexis’ house, where everything starts innocently enough – drinks, alcoholic games and increasingly intense flirtation. However, events take a surprising turn and will go on to become more and more surprising. Laughter and a pleasant atmosphere turn into screams of terror and a cry for help. However, as often happens in such situations, nobody will hear you scream.

“We Summon the Darkness” is a perverse and surprising thriller, which uses the motif of fanaticism in a brilliant way. Marc Meyers, sits in the director’s chair, he offers us a piece of solid dark cinema lined with violence, madness and a juicy plot twist. Although the cast on the screen does a good job, they all look lost compared to Alexandra Daddario, who takes her character to a whole new level – enchants, hypnotizes and constantly surprises with her charisma and energy. The devil can tempt, deceive and manipulate so effectively that sometimes you don’t really know who the bad guy is.
