SÉANCE

de Simon Barrett

Trailer

Synopsis

There’s one thing that is even more terrifying than a haunted house or a secluded forest: a boarding school. A symbol of elitism, and this is where Camille Meadows arrives, having secured a spot at the last minute following the death of another student. Things get complicated when a séance seems to trigger a series of disappearances. The screenwriter behind You're Next and The Guest makes his directorial debut with this old-school flavored slasher.
