“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-down to Hell…”

Reviews [click links to read more]:

“It’s heavily flawed, there’s no doubt about that, but The Invoking 2 is strangely entertaining. Even when it’s at its worst, there’s still something charming about it, and fans of these kinds of paranormal horror tales—particularly those who don’t mind visibly low-budget movies—might actually get a kick out of this one.” Cinema Slasher

“Overall, The Invoking 2 is more underwhelming than it is thrilling.  The filmmaking is fine, but the stories are forgettable.  However, if other productions plan on taking the same approach to anthology crafting, they would do well to follow this movie’s template of at least finding shorts with similar tones and quality levels…” Culture Crypt

“The amount of scares provided by the different segments in The Invoking 2 varies just as greatly as their quality. While none of the shorts are going to give anyone any nightmares, many of them do have their moments. The scariest is “Melissa,” partially because it’s just plain scary and partially because of the shock of it being over so quickly.” Film Fracture
