..and entertaining is sadly something I cannot say for many, many horror films these days. Much different is the fact that I continue to be disappointed by the vast majority of horror genre movies.
Quite some time ago I gave up on having any expectations in regards to "theatrically" released horror films. I don't know exactly why but the powers-that-be who pick/choose what films are worthy of any type of release(be it wide release, or minimum release) into theaters..their picks of movies have continued to go from bad to worse..to even the bottom of the barrel, in terms of any quality content whatsoever.
Due to that fact I have become more and more open to finding, and even seeking out, what are known as independent/indie films, as well as what critics would label as B-grade horror films..and in all honesty it is in those "type" movies that I have found entertaining horror genre films. I've found time and time again great, thrilling content..and sometimes come across those little indie flicks that are truly, real gems!
No doubt there are tons of them that are worthless, but hey, I've found that the high dollar, theatrically released films are just the same in being worthless so, so much of the time..and especially here, recently I've found that there are actually more indie horror flicks that by far, and wide, surpass the quality/content of the "big-name" horror films.
"Invoked" isn't one of those truly, fine gems of a horror, but it is an entertaining flick that actually had some chills/thrills, which is much more than I can say for multi-multi-million dollar horror films like the recently released Sinister 2.
