You summon me for love?

An independent film made in 2009, Lo is first and foremost a love story. Albeit, a love story with demons, infernal pacts and demonology books. A loner named Justin falls in love with a quirky girl named April. She is kidnapped by demons, and leaves behind a book. Looking for any clue to save April, he finds a bookmark, showing how to summon a demon named Lo. So he does. Enter Lo.

Notable for taking place entirely in one room and remaining gripping despite the fact.

This film contains examples of:

  • Meet Cute: April and Justin's first meeting. While he was having lunch at a restaurant, she came out of nowhere and started eating his food, gushing at how good it tasted while he stared at her in wonder. So awkward, but so unbelievably adorable.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: The flashbacks are told in the form of Vaudeville style performances, and Plot Exposition is administered-IN SONG!
  • Sophisticated as Hell:
    • Jeez dresses extremely formally but talks kinda like a fancy stoner.
    Jeez: Dude. Dude.
    • Lo also switches between ominous archaic English and crass, slurred ramblings.
