    When a fake Seance leads to a college girl's death - all hell brakes loose in this girl's boarding school. It's a banal plot that quickly detours towards slasher fodder at the end.

    Seance é um excelente slasher que até a sua metade parece ser um PG-13 e depois joga sangue na sua cara,sua subtrama paranormal e um tanto desnecessária. Mas não afeta seu desempenho

    Waterhouse cannot save it
  • Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
    There is something to admire with how Seance subverts its own sub-genre's predictability (particularly in the final 20 minutes), with obvious nods to the likes of You're Next with its Dawn of the Dead-esque score and fitting final girl. For such a fun and violent payoff means enduring an unfortunate dose of bland writing and pedestrian genre beats. You may get a little more than you'd bargain for with a movie called Seance, but to expect a completely fresh approach to such an on-the-nose sub-genre would be foolish. It's no You're Next but it's a few notches about Temple let's just say that

    I went to this film because writer/director Simon Barrett wrote two very good films in the last 10 years (The Guest, You're Next), so I thought I'd check his directorial debut feature film. I don't think this one is nearly as good as either aforementioned films, but it was not bad either. This film tries to be clever by switching genra several times, but it never fully sold me on its goods to be frank. It borrows heavily from films like Scream, The Craft, Suspiria, Urban Legends that it really doesn't have a distinguished identity of its own. Still, I wasn't bored, Suki Waterhouse (as the lead) has a good screen presence, and it more or less has a satisfying ending, so that most count towards something.

    “SEANCE” stars Suki Waterhouse as the lead star. It’s a low-budget slasher/horror that’s almost like a drama. The director does a good job of keeping you in suspense, and you want to see what happens next. After the suspense, you get a 2 second peak of the kill. It’s disappointing, but the story and pace keeps you gripped. It has cheesy moments, and also terrifying moments. Around the middle of the movie, it started turning into a mystery drama, but the ending really surprised me and had lots of blood. Although it’s disappointing, it’s still fun if you don’t think about it much and just have fun. 4/5

    An intenresting blend of horror subgenres going from ghost stroy to surprisingly gory without remorse slasher with a twist. Hits all the conventions and has difficulties to make its characters really exist but still reserve some thrills. An enjoyable watch for genre lovers.

    Was hoping this would be on par with the director's other works which I really enjoyed. Missed the mark and was definitely not helped by the dull and un-engaging Camille. Casting was disappointing to say the least and perhaps the last shovel of dirt on the grave. Will not be holding a ‘seance' to resurrect anything from this performance.

    Supernatural Slasher ‘Seance' Attempts to Go Old School With No Frills Murder Mystery
  • Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
    Considering it was produced on a small budget, had no known actors, and little or no publicity, it was a surprisingly good little horror film! There was just enough action and killings as well as the mystery as to who was the killer to keep one interested. Once the killings began it got pretty gory, which I like, but moviegoers who don't like that kind of thing should not see this movie. Sometimes when you expect a movie to be a bomb and as in our case, just see it because there is little else playing in the theaters that I haven't seen, many times you might be surprised to find a movie that holds your interest. This one did, at least for my wife and I. I would imagine it will go to cable or OD soon since it won't be a big box office attraction, so save your money and wait for it to be on pay per view or even Netflix.
