[[caption-width-right:349: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, [[DealWithTheDevil infernal pacts]] and [[MacGuffin demonology books]]. A loner named Justin falls in love with a [[ManicPixieDreamGirl 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:

* AffablyEvil: Lo, Jeez, arguably all the demonic characters.
* BerserkButton: Lo's illusions progress until Justin believes the entire legions of hell are laughing at him. He snaps like a fucking ''twig''.
* ChekhovsGun: Jeez first appears while holding a copy of ''Theatre/TheTragicalHistoryOfDoctorFaustus''. [[spoiler: Also, the Bookmark in the Book, marking the page on how to summon Lo.]]
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: April. Definitely April.
* ILied: [[spoiler: It ''was'' poison! '''''AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA''''']]
* MeetCute: 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.
* MortalWoundReveal: [[spoiler: April]].
* MundaneMadeAwesome: The flashbacks are told in the form of Vaudeville style performances, and Plot Exposition is administered-IN SONG!
* ShoutOut: to [[Theatre/DoctorFaustus The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus]].
* SophisticatedAsHell: Jeez dresses extremely formally but talks kinda like a fancy stoner.
-->'''Jeez:''' Dude. ''Dude''.
