Despite the Low Budget, Could Have Been Much Better
30 July 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The friends Marcus (Chris Olivero), Joey (Bobby Campo), Eva (Nazneen Contractor) and Sara (Devon Ogden) go to the morgue where Marcus works to record a séance summoned by Eva that is a medium. Joey does not believe that Eva is capable to summon spirits and make jokes all the time. However, Eva summons a demon by mistake and Joey is possessed by the fiend. The Christian Sara tries to exorcise Joey but the powerful demon has many tricks to lure her.

"Seance: The Summoning" is a low-budget movie with great potential but unfortunately it fails. Sara and Eva try to use the help of God to defeat the demon but the fight between good and evil is poorly resolved. In the end, neither God nor the devil wins the battle and the story becomes pointless. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Evocação – A Porta do Diabo" ("Evocation – The Devil's Door")
