Not your average summoning from the bowels of hell, ‘We Summoned a Demon’ a more lighthearted retro short played for laughs rather than scares.
Two bored warehouse workers attempt to bring a demon to earth using a hokey ritual, which even included playing rock music backwards on vinyl. Historically religious groups thought that Alice Cooper records played backwards are chanting from the devil himself.
Kirk and Carlos aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer but they do make a compelling pair to root for as the demon they thought wasn’t coming appears in front of them.
‘We Summoned a Demon’ harkens back to the VHS era with its neon soaked sets and synth score and the story is plenty of goofy fun.
