The Entity – DVD

When Eduardo Schultz found footage horror film The Entity starts, you’ll be wondering if this spook-venture is worth even switching on. Can you really watch another hour and twenty minutes of screaming in the dark?

Humberto Rosa and Thairon Mendes’ found footage horror Invoked is a surprisingly effective . Rosa’s script, co-written by Aaron Gibson, is short and sweet, hits all the bases of a typical haunted house horror, but still packs a punch.
