Plot Summary
A group finds out how to summon an evil entity and things take a bad turn
Director
It must be near the end of October. Why? Because even in the middle of a pandemic Hollywood still manages to push out bad horror flicks. (That, and I looked at the calendar just before I wrote this).

While this is not your typical, do-something-stupid, make-all-the-wrong-choices, the-person-acting-like-a-jerk-is-about-to-die horror flick, it tries to be smart and moody, but it just falls flat.

What makes this one worse than most is that it is nearly a full hour longer than the average horror flick. Most of them clock in at 80 or 90 minutes. Sometimes they push an hour and 45 minutes. But this one drags on for a full 2 hours and 17 minutes! That's like 3 years in horror flick time. Trust me, nobody's got time for that.

If you are desperate to get out of the house and see a new horror flick for the Halloween season, this is pretty much your only option. I wish it was better, but we don't always get what we wish for...even if we blow into an empty bottle and chant for it.

I have a feeling that The Empty Man is going to be playing to a lot of empty theaters.
