Summoning the Spirit follows Carla (Millie Valdes) and Dean (Ernesto Reyes) as they decide to escape the hustle of the big city, purchasing a home in the remote forest. They have big plans for their new quiet life, only to find something much more sinister. The couple quickly realize that they are on the land of a cult, and the leader claims a telepathic connection to a legendary flesh-eating beast deep in the woods surrounding them. Carla and Dean are forced to uncover the terrifying truth of the cult’s prophecy.

One of the film’s producers was quoted saying: “It is such a joy to be working again with Jon Garcia on his foray into genre filmmaking, after reading the script we knew this was a project we could really get on board with. This is more than your typical creature feature — it explores the depths of the human psyche, thirst for power and desire to control…all alongside some incredible practical effects and a creature audiences will not soon forget.”
Described as “Sasquatch Horror.”
Dark Star Pictures released Summoning the Spirit on VOD and DVD on August 8, 2023.
