Movie Info

A psychic housewife and her husband become burdened with a kidnapped girl who escaped her assailant. Junko will not let her husband call the hospital or the police for purely selfish reasons. The girl dies while still in their house and her ghost begins to haunt not only Junko but also her husband, Sato (Koji Yakusho).

Junko suffers from Lady Macbeth syndrome with a 21st-century careerist twist: Her ambition is strictly for herself, and she'll kill to satisfy it, quickly and coldly.

Under Kurosawa's richly stylized direction it's kept moody, atmospheric and what seems only frivolous entertainment becomes something that's more provocative.

A mix of crime drama and psychic mysticism, the film plays like a thriller without many thrills.

Kurosawa's film is creepy -- the atmosphere is bathed in dread -- but rarely frightening.

Its portrait of spiritual estrangement generates profound unease.

Audience Reviews for Seance

Slow, plodding, bland drama with a couple coffee spillers thrown it. Uneven with plot holes (beating a ghost with a stick?), the film comes to an unexpected halt (I think they ran out of film and decided to go with what they had). Don't expect much and you wont be disappointed.
