Séance on a Wet Afternoon

The amazing Bryan Forbes died yesterday. RIP.

In 1964, Forbes wrote and directed Séance on a Wet Afternoon, based on the novel by Mark McShane.

The film tells the story of an unstable psychic medium, who convinces her browbeaten husband to kidnap a child so she can help the police solve the crime.

It stars a range of 60's British talent, including Richard Attenborough, Nanette Newman (later Forbes’ wife) and Patrick Magee.

The attached review is from the brilliant 'British Horror Films' website - though the film is really more of a thriller.

Oh, look out for Attenborough's unnecessary prosthetic!
