Ruthless Pictures Picks Up Worldwide Rights to Award Winning Horror Thriller THE INVOKING (Formerly SADER RIDGE)


When Samantha visits the ancestral home she has inherited, forgotten memories begin to seep back to the surface. As her sanity slowly unravels, she soon finds herself unable to tell the difference between reality and a series of terrifying visions. While her world crumbles, Samantha discovers that the visions may be tied to a horrifying past deeply buried in her memory.

With The Invoking (formerly Sader Ridge), the filmmakers (writer/director Jeremy Berg, writers/producers Matt Medisch and John Portanova, collectively The October People) set out to tell a horror story with strong characters and tons of atmosphere. Inspired by films like The Shining and Rosemary’s Baby, where the unknown is more frightening than anything real, they hoped to deliver a potent psychological horror experience. “As first time filmmakers we knew there were obstacles to overcome,
says Berg, “but through the hard work and dedication of our cast and crew, we created a film that I couldn’t be happier with.”

“An award-winning festival run and critical reviews have been a great reward for the hard work and vision we had for the film,” add Medisch and Portanova.

“Ruthless Pictures saw the potential in our film, and a partnership was born,” Berg continues. “With their track record of releasing interesting and successful horror films, it was clear that they were the right company to help us get The Invoking out to the widest possible audience.”

Ruthless Pictures’ Jesse Baget is excited at the chance to represent the film, “These guys are very talented and I’m thrilled to get behind their first feature, which I believe audiences are gonna be haunted and intrigued by.”

The Invoking stars Brandon Anthony, D’Angelo Midili, Trin Miller, Andi Norris and Josh Truax.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Dead Island, Yakuza Zero and Payday 2.
