    2.0 out of 5 stars FATHER KNOWS BEST, February 21, 2014
    Format:DVD
    Sam (Trin Miller) inherits a house owned by her aunt. It is one she lived in as a child until five when her parents put her up for adoption. Her memory of the place is worse than a Watergate defendant. Her friends include Mark (Brandon Anthony), her ex-boyfriend who just broke up with his girlfriend. Roman (Josh Truax)is bummed out because Caitlin (Andi Norris) who has all the decent lines is leaving for six months. We really don't know what the heck their relationship is. Eric (D'Angelo Midili) is the caretaker. He remembers Sam, but doesn't give her any important details as why she was put up for adoption at five. All three guys are loosely and sadly based on the creepiness of Norman Bates. Is there a writer in the house?

    Things escalate as Sam sees and hears things blending the past with the present. The green monster complicates matters among all the testosterone. At an hour into the film you get your first WTF moment as someone slips out of character...or perhaps into character.

    The downfall of the film is that it creates only one decent character, Caitlin. The ending becomes bizarre and doesn't offer up any real closure, except what the audience might surmise. The film for the most part was boring. The ending should have brought the story together and gave meaning to all those boring parts. And what was that abandoned building they stopped at in the beginning? It looked like the dome of a small experimental reactor. A good script would have tied this stuff together, instead we get the sloppiness too often found in indie productions, i.e. let's start shooting and see what looks good afterwards.

    Walmart $9.96.

    Southern gothic supernatural thrillers seem to be gaining some momentum lately. "Last Kind Words" and "A Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" immediately come to mind. The middle of nowhere is a cheap and easy place to make a movie. There's no denying that there's very little creepier than the darkness of the woods and the isolation felt in a rural setting. RLJ Entertainment's "The Invoking" is another fine example of what can be done with a small budget in the backwoods of any state's countryside.

    Samantha Harris and her friends embark on a trip to visit a house she's inherited from a family she's never met. As soon as they arrive, Samantha starts having terrifying visions she can't explain. Are these haunting experiences trying to reveal something about her forgotten past? Can she trust the young man commissioned to watch over her new property as he slowly opens up to Samantha about their past friendship she can't remember?

    Producer/Director/Co-writer Jeremy Berg knows how to drum up scares without the use of fancy special effects and CGI. His style is reminiscent of Hitchcock and the likes. He works more on your nerves and jump scares than most new filmmakers. Sometimes having less money to work with makes you try harder to create genuine scares without the crutch of modern technology.

    There are some impressive special features included in the DVD version of "The Invoking." Two audio commentary tracks are provided with the actors, writers, producers, and Director Jeremy Berg. A "Behind the Scenes" documentary really makes you appreciate the effort the filmmakers and cast put into making this movie in record time on a micro-budget.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Seems more "student project" then Indie Horror. February 20, 2014
    Format:DVD
    I read about this movie on a horror site (can't remember which), so I decided to check it out. Let me tell you,...it was a STRUGGLE to make it through this. Every minute that passed felt like an hour while watching it. Many of the other reviews praise the acting and character "development". Unfortunately, at LEAST 2 of those reviews came from people that were LISTED IN THE MOVIES CREDITS! Therefore, they should be discarded. Here's my take on the film.

    The story revolves around a group of 4 friends: Sam (Trin Miller), Caitlin (Andi Norris), Mark (Brandon Anthony), and Roman (Josh Truax). Sam has just received news that an Aunt she didn't even know existed has passed away and left her the land and house she was living in. (This story has been done WAY too many times already) The group decides to make a vacation of it and head there to check out Sam's newly acquired property. Along the way, we discover that Mark and Sam were once and item, but something happened that caused them to break up. Also, Roman and Caitlin are just "friends", but Roman obviously is looking for more. That, in itself, is really the only "development" we get.

    After arriving to the property, they are greeted by Eric (D'Angelo Midili), who is apparently the "caretaker" of the property. How he makes money, I'm not sure, but he spends his days looking after the house and fixing anything that needs repairing. Of course, Eric is the same age as the others, so Sam invites him to join in from time to time. Somehow (beyond my imagination), Mark is supposed to be some sort of "tough guy". He doesn't like the fact that Sam continues to ask Eric to join in and promptly lets his feelings be known. The problem here is Mark just ISN'T the "tough guy" type. At least, to me he doesn't appear that way.

    This is a terrific film - slow burning, creepy, and requires a little patience at the beginning. The acting, directing and cinematography are bigger than the budget. Read more
