1[[quoteright:349:]]²[[caption-width-right:349:You summon me for love?]]²²An 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. ²²Notable for taking place entirely in one room and remaining gripping despite the fact.²----²!!This film contains examples of:²²* AffablyEvil: Lo, Jeez, arguably all the demonic characters.²* BerserkButton: Lo's illusions progress until Justin believes the entire legions of hell are laughing at him. He snaps like a fucking ''twig''.²* 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.]]²* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: April agrees to go back to Hell with Jeez willingly if he'll allow her to save Justin's life first.]]²%%* ManicPixieDreamGirl: April. Definitely April.²* ILied: Lo likes to do this. ²--> [[spoiler: It ''was'' poison! '''''AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA''''']]²* 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.²%%* MortalWoundReveal: [[spoiler: April]].²* MundaneMadeAwesome: The flashbacks are told in the form of Vaudeville style performances, and Plot Exposition is administered-IN SONG!²%%* ShoutOut: to [[Theatre/DoctorFaustus The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus]].²* SophisticatedAsHell:²** Jeez dresses extremely formally but talks kinda like a fancy stoner. ²-->'''Jeez:''' Dude. ''Dude''.²** Lo also switches between ominous archaic English and crass, slurred ramblings.²* StarCrossedLovers: April and Justin. ²* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Most of the movie is Lo doing this to Justin. [[spoiler: Justin turns it around on him at the end.]]²* TheReveal: [[spoiler: April and Lo are the same entity.]]²%%* TookALevelInBadass: Justin. [[spoiler: I am your master. You are my '''dog'''.]]²* YouAreWorthHell: [[spoiler: Justin tries to do this with April, but she refuses to let him.]]²----
