Rediscovery: Kim Stanley and Richard Attenborough in a stylish, densely atmospheric thriller.

As a medium, Myra Savage summons the living and the dead. Together with her husband, they hold séances. To advance their dubious careers, they decide to kidnap the daughter of a wealthy couple. Myra offers to help the desperate parents with séances. However, this plan plunges everyone involved into a sinister vortex. - Lead star and Method actress Kim Stanley was an idol to her colleagues: “Nothing like the honesty and intense emotional gambling in which she engages in ›Séance on a Wet Afternoon‹ had been attempted before: it was dangerous acting, and she was remarkable.” (Marlon Brando)
