Seance is written and directed by Barrett, best known in the horror genre for his frequent collaborations with director Adam Wingard, producing and writing the 2010 psychological chiller A Horrible Way to Die and the 2011 dark comedy slasher You’re Next, as well as penning two segments of the first two V/H/S films and making his directorial debut on the second. Barrett is set to return to direct a segment of the forthcoming reboot of the Bloody Disgusting-produced anthology franchise.
