Movie Reviews

Possibly the corniest thing ever
M. T. | Minnesota | 01/13/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I enjoyed this movie for several reasons; It made me laugh, it made me nervous, and it blew my mind. There is something about the various characters in this film that are true to people, but obviously much more embelished. So I guess the acting really wasn't that bad.

It has something to say regarding people and the need to feel accepted or belong. That is a about the only thing that makes the story unique and timeless. Other than that a person would be horrified at the cheesy effects and sound on this film, though I liked it for that very reason. The way this movie is done makes you embarassed about the past and at the same time long for those days to be back. I can't imagine this would have required much of a budget. It indludes several familiar faces including Punky Brewster and the kid from the Neverending Story.

I would definately recommend seeing this movie once. At the beginning of this movie you might not know what to expect exactly so I won't spoil it anymore than I have. It might hurt a little at first... and all the way through for that matter. But if your head isn't made of concrete than you should get at least a little something out of this film."
Fills The Need For Cheeeze!...
Bindy Sue Frřnkünschtein | under the rubble | 08/07/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Wes Craven is an interesting director. The very same genius behind horror classics like THE HILLS HAVE EYES, LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, is also responsible for some major additions to the annals of cheeeze. His made-4-tv movie INVITATION TO HELL is a prime example of the latter. That nasty old satan is up to his old tricks again, this time in the guise of the beautiful Jessica Jones (Susan Lucci!), healthclub owner. Enter a loving family (including Robert Urich, Bladerunner's Joanna Cassidy, and Punky Brewster herself- Soliel Moon Frye!!) of unsuspecting suburbanites who are drawn into a devilish plot to get them to join the "Steaming Springs" health club. Little do they know, Jessica is only trying to imprison their very souls! Can dad (Urich) figure things out and save the day before health clubs like this begin popping up all across our great land? Let us pray for his success! Watch for Kevin McCarthy (Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, The Howling, Piranha, Twilight Zone: The Movie) as dad's boss, and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, The Devil's Rejects) as a valet! Everyone should see this movie once..."
Invation To Hell
JOHNIE R PULLUM | Brooklyn, New york | 04/06/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is an eerie tale from the 1980s. It does not quite make it as a horror. More like a eerie drama. It is pretty entertaining, especially with the soap opers star, Susan Lucci. Shey played the female, succubus, demon in the movie very well. With a little more action and violence, this could have been a much better movie, still it is good for those who like a soft chill. I Did Like it though."
Immersive emotional family movie
Geisweiller | In the east | 05/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Invitation to Hell is an unknown and clearly underrated movie, done with very little budget but yet so strong emotionally. IMO a master piece.

It basically evolves around family bounds and how it feels to see the ones you love becoming strangers to you.

About the score, another great composition from Sylvester Levay (author of AirWolf main theme TV series) very simple and very emotional, that contributes a lot in creating the atmosphere of the movie.

Hope you will enjoy this movie as much as I did.
