Seance on a Wet Afternoon (1964)

11/05/1964 (US) CrimeDramaThriller 1h 51m

Was it magic...Or murder they planned?


Working-class British housewife Myra Savage reinvents herself as a medium, holding seances in the sitting room of her home with the hidden assistance of her under-employed, asthmatic husband, Billy. In an attempt to enhance her credibility as a psychic, Myra hatches an elaborate, ill-conceived plot to kidnap a wealthy couple's young daughter so that she can then help the police "find" the missing girl.
