Tweet To Join Kendall Schmidt In Hollywood's Spookiest Seance Ahead Of 'Ouija' Release

Kendall Schmidt Olivia Cooke Stiles White Juliet Snowden Daren Kagasoff

In what could be one of the most unique interactive ideas for a horror movie yet, Kendall Schmidt will take part in a 'social séance' on October 10th alongside a special screening of upcoming ghost flick 'Ouija'.

From the producers of 'Paranormal Activity' and 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', and starring Olivia Cooke from 'Bates Motel', 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager' actor Daren Kagasoff and up-and-coming star Ana Coto, the movie is set in a spooky old house where a girl is killed after apparently awakening a malevolent spirit when she stumbled across a lost ouija board. In a bid to make contact once again, her beloved sister decides to set up a séance with their friends using the same spirit board. However, it soon becomes clear that this chilling game is a lot more real (and dangerous) than they could ever have anticipated. The film serves as the directorial debut of Stiles White, who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Juliet Snowden, with whom he previously worked on 'The Possession' and 'Knowing'.

Knowing Review

In the list of filmmakers packed with wasted potential, Alex Proyas has to be near the top. While Dark City sparkled with a kind of surreal sci-fi magic, his other efforts -- including the gloppy Will Smith epic I, Robot -- have felt strained and unrewarding. So when you see his name attached to the lasted Nicolas Cage effort (said actor himself a perfect example of the law of continued diminishing returns), one fears a flop coming on. But as luck would have it, Knowing is actually very good. It proves that Proyas is perhaps one mainstream mega-hit away from finally fulfilling his so far unrealized possibilities.

Fifty years ago, the students of a small Massachusetts school buried a time capsule filled with their drawings of the future. In 2009, it's opened, and what's inside will change the fate of MIT Professor John Koestler (Cage), his son Caleb (Chandler Canterbury), and the actual world as we know it. Seems the boy gets a weird list of numbers, scribbled by a troubled child five decades ago. Now, Koestler sees a pattern in the randomness -- they appear to be predicting cataclysmic events, providing the date and the actual number of casualties. Luckily, most of the tragedies have already occurred. Unfortunately, there are three remaining. With the help of Diana Wayland (Rose Byrne) and her daughter Abby (Lara Robinson), our hero will try to understand the omens before life as we "know" it no longer exists.

Boogeyman Review

I am sad to report that Boogeyman is not another biopic. It's not even clear whether this tame bit of horror shlock is about the Boogeyman or simply a Boogeyman. The film's credits list him as "the," but let's hope it's a mistake; I prefer to think that the Boogeyman would have better things to do than menace the closets of a barely-there rural town.

This Boogeyman's favorite victim is Tim (Barry Watson), and a childhood encounter leaves Tim's dad dead -- but Tim, somewhat inexplicably, still alive. Years later, Tim is living in "the city" (very similar to "a city") terrified of closets and the dark, though surprisingly at ease with an insufferable and oblivious girlfriend Jessica (Tory Mussett). When a family tragedy brings Tim home again, he must confront his frighteningly literal demons. He also gets to spend some quality time with childhood love Kate (Emily Deschanel).
