Horror fans rejoice! Simon Barrett’s feature directorial debut is here!
The writer of creepy genre favorites such as YOU’RE NEXT, THE GUEST, and V/H/S brings his singular style to SEANCE, a twisted take on the power of teenage girls and makeshift Ouji boards.
When a late-night prank results in the death of a student, girls at the prestigious Edelvine Academy are convinced a malevolent spirit is to blame. As events start to spiral out of control, new girl Camille (played to badass perfection by Suki Waterhouse) is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery and isn’t going to let a few flickering lights and shadowy entities get in her way.
With nods to the greats of the haunted boarding school genre like SUSPIRIA, SEANCE has the feel of a classic ‘70s shocker seen through a warped mirror. Just when you think you know where things are headed, you’re proven shockingly wrong. Atmospheric and gory, SEANCE will keep you on the edge of your seat as it continuously raises the stakes and the scares. -Lisa ‘Partytime’ Dreyer
