Archaon is a 2020 United States Horror film directed by Paul Ernest, and written by Paul Ernest and Michael White.
This film features the following stars: Christopher Dalton, Jaire George, Jules Incorvaia.
Four college students take possession of a 15th-century Celtic artifact and resurrect the legend of Archaon. Haunting those who dare summon the evil spirit by putting on the mask, one by one they are tormented in the realm of in-between.
With “Archaon: The Halloween Summoning” being a horror movie, of course I would eventually find myself sitting down to watch it, because I am a huge fan of the horror genre after all.
Well, I must say that writers Paul Ernest and Michael White certainly had some interesting enough concepts for the storyline and plot. However, the movie as a whole and entertainment-wise just didn’t really cut it for me. Sure, “Archaon: The Halloween Summoning” was watchable, but this was by no means an outstanding or particularly memorable horror experience.
For me it was the mainly the pacing of the movie that dragged the enjoyment of the movie down, as well as the overall lack of anything interesting or even remotely scary. For a horror movie, then I have to say that “Archaon: The Halloween Summoning” was a very, very bland experience.
The storyline was just held back because there wasn’t a particularly well-working horror feeling to it. The movie just seemed a bit too shallow in that aspect. It didn’t really feel that the characters in the movie were fearing for their lives and well-being.
The acting in the movie was for the most parts actually fair enough. One has to keep in mind the limitations of the script and storyline that was imposed upon the actors and actresses.
I was initially suckered in by the movie’s rather interesting and appealing cover/poster. Which ultimately turned out to oversell the movie greatly, because the colorful cover/poster had absolutely nothing to do with the brown-toned and dull-looking demonic entity that milled about as a lanky, non-threatening creature.
All in all, “Archaon: The Halloween Summoning” is not a great horror experience, and you will not be a poorer individual if you opt to skip on this title entirely, trust me. My rating of director Paul Ernest’s 2020 horror movie “Archaon: The Halloween Summoning” is a mere three out of ten stars. I managed to watch the entire movie, but I can honestly say that I am not returning to watch the movie a second time.
