Olivia Cooke - 2016 Film Independent Spirit Awards held at Santa Monica Beach - Arrivals at anta Monica Beach, Independent Spirit Awards - Los Angeles, California, United States - Saturday 27th February 2016
High school can be the worst time for some people, and for Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann), it turned out to be especially horrible. His parents inform him that his classmate, Rachel Kushner (Olivia Cooke), has been diagnosed with leukemia. The two make a fast friendship out of a mutual intention to not be sympathetic, but that plan doesn't work out as well as planned. Greg and his best friend Earl make 'bad films' in their spare time, and decide to devote a film to Rachel. Unfortunately, as they specialise in bad films, they struggle to make something that will truly honour her and cheer her up.

Kendall Schmidt and Emily Kinney joined in the ghostly gathering with questions from their own Twitter followers.
With the forthcoming release of supernatural horror 'Ouija', the cast were joined at Hollywood Cemetery by some fellow TV and movie stars at a special screening. Though this wasn't any normal screening, as what soon followed was a spine-chilling night of paranormal drama.
Olivia Cooke [L] and Ana Coto [R] star in 'Ouija'
Olivia Cooke, Bianca A. Santos, Shelley Hennig, Daren Kagasoff and Ana Coto got involved in a real life séance on October 10th 2014 in support of their new movie, which sees their characters suffering the consequences of a spirit's unrest during a similar ritual. Also at the event were Nickelodeon actor and musician Kendall Schmidt, who had been spreading the word over Twitter; 'The Walking Dead' star Emily Kinney; and Ryan Ochoa from Disney XD's 'Pair of Kings' among others. Leading the proceedings was famed magician Rob Zabrecky, who acted as the spirit medium - and a very spooky one at that!
Sometimes, the most terrifying experiences come from childhood games. One such case is that of the Ouija board - a board game designed for communicating with the dead. Debbie (Shelley Hennig) choses to stay in one night and not go out on the town with her friends. While at home, she discovers a mysterious Ouija board in an upstairs room and is later found dead. Her friends decide that, as they miss her, they want to contact her in the afterlife via an Ouija board that they also discover. After making a connection with the afterlife, the friends soon realise that the board is linked to them and bringing them into conflict with an old spectre that seems hell-bent on tormenting them. The Ouija board is not a game for them anymore - it is a newfound level of ultimate terror.

You don't need a ouija board to join this horror movie's 'social séance'.
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'.
(L-R) Douglas Smith, Olivia Cooke and Ana Coto star in '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'.
When hacking geniuses Nic Eastman and Jonah Breck from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) decided to take a road trip during their school break with Nic's girlfriend Haley Peterson, they had no idea they would find themselves fighting for their lives, each other and their sanity.

Then it begins to dawn on them that they may have made a big mistake as they are brutally attacked by an anonymous assailant. Nic wakes up to find himself locked up in a research lab full of men in biohazard suits and a formidable man named Damon determined to interrogate him about what he saw. It's clear that some unearthly power is leading the people of Earth astray with a strange phenomena known as The Signal.

Professor Coupland is an Oxford University physics professor in the seventies, who understands and accepts that supernatural episodes occur - though he has his own theories on how they're manifested. Ghosts and phantoms are nonsense in his opinion and he gathers up his team to set out on a dangerous experiment to prove that poltergeist activity is caused by strong negative energy emitting from humans - usually children. However, on their quest to collect photographic evidence of paranormal phenomena by creating their own poltergeist, their young female subject appears to become traumatised after being left alone for a short period of time. She starts to experience a strange presence near her and the experimenters struggle to contemplate just what evil they have unleashed with their controversial testing.
