Storyline

Over Thanksgiving weekend, all but five students in an old Manhattan building that's now a college dormitory leave for home: staying on one floor are roommates Lauren, Melina, and Alison, plus her boyfriend Diego and Grant, a loner in a room down the hall. Lauren's been seeing things in her bathroom: a silent child of about six. Diego has written a paper on parapsychology, so he holds a séance with the disbelieving co-eds. Something goes awry, because bad things start to happen and the students' only defender is an aging campus cop named Syd. What's the silent ghostly girl's secret, and can Alison discover what's going on before it's too late? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Reasonable Ghost Story
6 June 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the Thanksgiving, five college students stay in their dormitory in the old Chelsea building alone with the security guard Syd (Jack Hunter) that locks the building for security reason. When Lauren (Kandis Erickson) tells to her roommates Melina (Tori White) and Alison (Chauntal Lewis) that their bathroom is haunted by the ghost of a little girl, they do not trust on her words. Lauren meets her neighbor of the same floor Grant (Joel Geist) and he tells that the girl was the Italian immigrant Cara Furia (Bridget Shergalis) that died when she felt down in the elevator shaft. He tells that another tragedy happened in the building with the janitor Jesse Spence (Adrian Paul). When Lauren tells the story to her friends, Alison's boyfriend Diego (A.J. Lamas) decides to hold a séance and summon the spirit of Cara Furia. However, they bring of the evil Spencer instead, and their night of fun becomes a nightmare.

"Séance" is a reasonable ghost story, with a creepy story that is not so bad. However, most of the characters are stupid and has the most imbecile and unreasonable attitude – specially considering that they are college students. But the movie entertains and I startled a couple of times. In the end, the policeman says to Lauren that so far they had found three bodies. Wait for the credits, because they find the fourth body with a surprise. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Quarto do Medo" ("Room of Fear")
