A young woman unwittingly unleashes an evil spirit in her house.
Starring: Debbi Jones, Brett DeJager, Joie Bauer, and Shirley Hoesing
Directed by: Carlos Omar De Leon
Written by: Vorasine Vince Phrommany and Carlos Omar De Leon
After bringing horror fans “Killer Date” and “Kal - The Clown,” Carlos Omar De Leon is back with a new film, “Invoke.” It’s getting late, and a young woman (Debbi Jones) is tired of working on her research as her boyfriend (Brett DeJager) watches a movie. She sends him home and prepares for bed, but not before listening to an audio file she receives from her cousin. The audio tells the story of Eliza Braum, a murderer who vowed to return one day!
Too bad for the young woman because that day has come. She doesn’t know it, but she summons the spirit to her house. Once again Carlos does a good job of setting a creepy atmosphere. The house is silent, and the young woman moves right into the dark spots of the house leaving her clueless to what’s lurking about. Eliza makes her presence known in a big way, and the film ends in frighting fashion. With strong performances, a somewhat familiar story, and a creepy spirit, I give “Invoke” 2.5 pools of blood.
