I actually had to look up what and when the original movie came out because I hadn’t the foggiest clue there was an Invoking 1 let along now The Invoking 2 and with the first getting wretched reviews, I guess it comes to no surprise this “sequel”, which is the latest in the anthology subgenre, doesn’t fair much better with so-so acting (at best) and stories which are run-of-the-mill bad.

PLOT SUMMARY

Although hundreds of disturbing paranormal events occur every year, most of these chilling encounters go unreported… until now. Bear witness as hapless victims experience the unspeakable terror of confronting demonic forces, murderous poltergeists and other evil entities that are dead set on claiming their souls. Descend into an abyss of waking nightmares as these bloodthirsty, malevolent spirits seek to possess their prey and drag them—kicking and screaming—to hell.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

No features were included. This does come with a title-embossed slip cover.


VIDEO – 3.25/5 | AUDIO – 3.0/5

The Invoking 2 is presented with an anamorphic 2.40 widescreen aspect ratio and looks every bit of the independent limited financed film it was with cheap looking visuals and some softness in some shots.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track meanwhile is entirely too heavy with dialogue levels topped out at times and the bass was incredibly heavy to the point where the entire room shook yet it was more of an annoyance than adding depth.



OVERALL – 2.0/5

Overall, I actually had to look up what and when the original movie came out because I hadn’t the foggiest clue there was an Invoking 1 let along now The Invoking 2 and with the first getting wretched reviews, I guess it comes to no surprise this “sequel”, which is the latest in the anthology subgenre, doesn’t fair much better with so-so acting (at best) and stories which are run-of-the-mill bad.
