Ouija Board spells trouble
29 August 2012 | by mackatuckerSee all my reviews

A very suspicious chess move in the Nathan Hill film ladder, I found Seance to be curious, and in fact almost an art-house style film. I can guess that from his previous film Tomboys, being a one room drama, that Hill wanted to broaden his horizons and shoot a film with a lot of exterior locations, which includes some incredible underwater sequences, shot on a limited budget. I heard a rumor that the shooting schedule was so tight that almost the whole movie is acted in one takes. For this alone it is quite an achievement then. 'Seance', much like Hill's 'Hyde & Seek' falls into a well known brand and genre of horror films. I guess the only difference here is that the movie is based on a true story. Apparently Daniel Rankin and Mr Hill were in class together one day during high school and had an emergency teacher recite a story (which the film is based on) about a friend of his who had just killed himself due to an horrific séance experience. The mind boggles. The last time I saw a Hill film he was smashing down a doorway, this time it's a rooftop!
