    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.

    The story in “The Invoking” is a pretty cool, classic adventure turned nightmare and that works for the first half of the film. The characters are emotive and portray some pretty convincing roles. There is some lag when the story arch hits the midway point, and instead of rushing into a thrilling overload of horror and melodrama, things fall a bit flat. The vision goes from one of almost paranormal chills to one that seems patch-worked between missing intent and scattered dramatics. I felt that something got lost in the translation toward the last act of the story. The first part created a great character building connection between me and the characters, the second act created an atmosphere of haunting unease but the last act seemed lost or held back. Plus there is absolutely nothing paranormal, supernatural or invoking in the story save the lead character’s, Sam’s, recovered memories of a sketchy past. I felt the marketing for this film is very misleading and that is really off-putting.

    The special effects and horror elements in this film are almost non-existent. I am not sure if that was intentional or a budget crunching thing but I really expected more from “The Invoking” and was left with a major feeling of disappointment. The few horror moments in the film are lightly braised upon with standard effects tricks that work but considering there were so few moments and most of the film is melodrama I feel Lifetime Movie Network is more this film’s audience. The ending was a total miss and made very little since. The meat of the mystery caretaker and Sam’s relationship is almost missing from the story. The moments touched upon are not enough to justify how this film ends. So really most of the film is a fail considering the pay-off, after such a suspense build-up, is really not worth the time invested. I say skip “The Invoking”.

    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.
