We Summon the Darkness (2019)

Marc Meyers directs Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson and Johnny Knoxville in this Eighties-set horror where a group of teens find themselves partying with a killer cult.

Passable but not as smart or as outlandish as it needs to be. Wicked but not evil. It probably owes more to the Scream franchise than it even realises. Daddario is always watchable and a little more badass than her previous roles. Knoxville’s contribution is more a delayed cameo than a game changer. Teens end up covered in corn syrup and improvising weaponry. Achievement unlocked.
