  1. João R's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    I wish I had embraced this one more than I could. However, its vague tone could've helped had the ending not been so misplaced - I think the viewer should've seen more of Myra's mental degeneration.

  2. Log Lady's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    A smooth and quintessentially British thriller with great performances by Attenborough and Stanley. Always nice to see some views of 60s London, too, no matter how briefly. The story does seem a bit pedestrian, but the aforementioned aspects and the excellent cinematography somewhat make up for it.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    I don't like that particular type of acting. It's over acting and it's melodramatic. Even Attenborough dips into it. The direction is well done, but not enough to lift it out of mediocrity.

  4. Tibulle85's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    (2.5/5) Mouaip...La fatigue est la plus implacable des critiques! J'ai dû m'y remettre à plusieurs fois pour en venir à bout. De bons premiers rôles sauvent un script extrêmement plat, à la fois tarabiscoté - certaines motivations des personnages restent aussi brumeuses qu'un ciel londonien - et prévisible dans ses grandes largeurs. ça aurait fait un sympathique épisode de série télé anglaise de 30 min néanmoins...

  6. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    Jolie découverte que ce très classique thriller anglais. Même si l'on s'attend à la fin (mais mes dons de médium à force de côtoyer Dayle Vindch m'aident sans doute), la mécanique est efficace et assez sobre.

  7. darth_david@msn.com's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    Fuera del buen trabajo de dirección y las actuaciones no hay mucho que ver en esta película. El guión es muy plano y no genera el suspenso deseado.

  8. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    Excellent British thriller, produced & performed by Richard Attenborough, with an inspired music score by John Barry. 64 a very rich period of English cinema & the London culture: QUANT, SASSOON, CAINE, STAMP, LESTER, BEATLES. == Excellent polar british, produit & interprété par Richard ATTENBOROUGH, sur 1 partition musicale efficace & inspirée de John BARRY. 64, le cinéma anglais & la culture londonienne au zénith.

  9. Ludovic72's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    Une intrigue au climat très hitchcockien (la maison et la femme rappellent parfois Psychose, sorti quatre ans plus tôt) et qui ressemble à certains épisodes d'Avengers des mêmes années : so british ! Dans un noir et blanc contrasté à fond et un Londres typique (pluie, bus, stations de métro, policiers polis), Kim Stanley brille dans son numéro de pseudo-médium lunatique, suivie par de solides seconds rôles.

  10. cyrikelly's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    Un film est d'abord une histoire interprétée par d'excellents acteurs. Ce film fait partie de cette catégorie. Merci M. BRAYAN FORBES.

  11. cabecassis's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    angoissant à souhait et propre tellement propre ! j'ai frissonné.

  12. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    You *really* need to suspend your disbelief for the kidnapping plot to work at all.

  13. DrFirestone's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    Great cinematography, Kim Stanley and Richard Attenborough are absolutely the highlight of this film, they gave outstanding performances. While it has some tense moments, for example the subway escape sequence, the story itself didn't engage me, I felt it was rather predictable and uninspiring.

  14. ofNatalie LA's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    I found it too difficult to listen to the wife droning on, with her awful music accompanying her. Worth it for Attenborough, who would do anything for his crazy wife.

  15. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    Hugely overlooked thriller in the Hitchcock style, with far more bite than you would expect from a British film made in the early 60s. The direction really brings out the quality of the performances from the two leads, especially the dominating Kim Stanley. There is genuine psychological depth in her performance that is revealed as the film progresses.

    Moody, clever thriller with an underlying air of tragedy. Quite fantastic.

  19. papilliondenuit@gmail.com's rating of the film Seance on a Wet Afternoon

    simple story told in a way that keeps you in suspense; is so obvious but so mysterious, dark, enigmatic that I was tense from begun till the end. and Kim Stanley plays extremely believable, most scary people are crazy people, as you never know what to expect and .... so nice to see london in 60 'they were... smoking in tube;)
