Producers Kate Robbins and Suzanne Lyons, whose sexy shocker CANDY STRIPERS debuts on DVD from Sony Pictures June 27, gave Fango the scoop from their new movie SEANCE, currently rolling in California. Mark L. Smith, scripter of Columbiaís upcoming snuff-film chiller VACANCY (starring Luke Wilson and Sarah Jessica Parker), wrote and is directing what the producers describe as ďa really scary ghost story.Ē They further tell Fango, ďMark is a first-time director, but because itís such a terriffic script and Mark is such a hot writer, SEANCE has attracted a great cast in spite of being low-budget. Adrian Paul from the HIGHLANDER television series and the upcoming Highlander film plays our serial-killer ghost. We have also cast A.J. Lamas, son of Lorenzo, who is one of the best young actors we have ever seen, and our lead from CANDY STRIPERS, Tori White, is back with us again.Ē Also starring are Kandis (FRANKENSTEIN REBORN) Erickson, Joel Geist, Chauntal Lewis and ďthe most adorable little girl, Bridget Shergalis, playing our ghost child.Ē
The producers also provided the following synopsis: ďLauren thinks her dorm room is haunted by a little girl. Water turns on, lights flicker, things tumble about on their own. Laurenís roommates Melina and Alison are sure itís just Laurenís imagination, and Alisonís boyfriend Diego is sure too. But Lauren knows theyíre wrong. And so does Grantóhe lives at the other end of the hall, and heís seen the little girl too. Heís even done some research, and discovered that the old dorm was once an apartment building, that the little girl who lived in Laurenís room was named Cara and she fell down the elevator shaft 40 years ago. So during Thanksgiving break, with the dorm empty except for Syd, the security guard, the kids decide to hold a sťance. If this little girl exists, Lauren wants to know why sheís bothering them.
ďBut what Lauren and the others donít understand is that their seance canít bring back a ghost thatís already there. But what they do bring back is Spence, the buildingís one-time maintenance man and local serial killer, who killed Cara and was executed 30 years ago. But none of them know Spence is there, because he and Cara are both only visible in the dark. In the light, the kids are blind. Itís not until several of the friends have disappeared that the others realize theyíve trapped themselves in an empty dorm with an invisible killer. So they must throw the dorm into total darkness, and discover a way to send Spence back to where he came from before he kills them all.Ē Look for more on SEANCE in the near future.
