RLJE Films will release Simon Barrett’s horror film, Seance starring Suki Waterhouse in theaters, on demand and digital on May 21, 2021 and Shudder will premiere the film on its platform later in the year.
Known for writing some of the most revered horror films over the past decade, Simon Barrett (You’re Next, The Guest) wrote the screenplay of Seance and makes his feature-length directorial debut with the film.
Seance stars Suki Waterhouse (Assassination Nation, The Divergent Series: Insurgent), Madisen Beaty (Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Ella-Rae Smith (”Into the Badlands”, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), Inanna Sarkis (Boo 2! A Madea Halloween), Seamus Patterson (“Channel Zero”) and Marina Stephenson-Kerr (“Channel Zero”).
In Seance, Camille Meadows (Waterhouse) is the new girl at the prestigious Edelvine Academy for Girls. Soon after her arrival, six girls invite her to join them in a late-night ritual, calling forth the spirit of a dead former student who reportedly haunts their halls. But before morning, one of the girls is dead, leaving the others wondering what they may have awakened.
