“The French countryside is absolutely stunning –  The castle, woods, local streets and tavern, as well as catacombs are authentic and add a desperately needed element of tangibility to the movie […] Sadly, there is not much to recommend about The Incantation. Had the story ended coherently it would have saved the many problems the film has.” Cryptic Rock

“Story-telling lesson learned here: Establish the rules. Make them clear, focused, as original as possible and brief. Follow them. And this is just the beginning of the many problems to be found in The Incantation. With the slightest of whispers of a good lead performance from Sam Valentine and some remarkable and drool-worthy locations out of the French countryside – you’ll find little else to recommend about The Incantation.” Horrorfreak News

“There were a few moments towards the end when the tension really began to build leading me to feeling unsettled however I will admit that I wasn’t terrified out of my mind. ‘The Incantation’ was more of a psychological, suspense thriller that all in all I thoroughly enjoyed! It was nice to experience a slow build (even though my impatient butt would beg to differ) instead of being faced with jump-scares galore.” Popcorn Horror

“But the script is really what lets the film down, and the convoluted plot and two-dimensional characters pull it back from achieving its full potential […] The Incantation may be a flawed film, but – thanks to the talents of Walko, Valentine and Cain – still frequently has the power to weave its spell.” Scream

“Forgoing blood and jump scares for atmosphere and suspense. That’s not always easy to do under sunny skies though, and the film loses it’s mood a few times before hitting its stride […] Despite its flaws, The Incantation works for the most part and is an effective film.” Voices from the Balcony
