Brooklyn 45” is a film that is definitely going to surprise you. Whether it’s the stylish filmmaking, the crackling dialogue, or the emotional depth, there’s more to this séance horror film than meets the eye, which is only teased in the new trailer.

As seen in the trailer, “Brooklyn 45” tells the story of a group of old WWII buddies who gather after the death of a close friend. They believe they’re gathered to pay their respects, but when they arrive, the group finds out that they were called together to perform a séance to help bring their friend back from the dead. While that sounds like a pretty typical horror premise, this film is full of surprises.

The film stars Anne Ramsay, Ron E. Rains, Jeremy Holm, Larry Fessenden, Ezra Buzzington, and Kristina Klebe. “Brooklyn 45” is written and directed by Ted Geoghegan

I was fortunate enough to see this film during SXSW, and in my review, I said, “Geoghegan’s ‘Brooklyn 45’ is largely able to rise above its shortcomings and deliver a unique, chilling story about the horrors of war and unsettling depths of humanity.”

Here’s the synopsis:

Friday, December 27 ,1945. Five military veterans gather in the ornate parlour of a Brooklyn brownstone. Best friends since childhood, they’ve reunited to support their troubled host–but when his invitation for cocktails turns into an impromptu séance, the metaphoric ghosts of their past become all-too-literal. Trapped in their host’s lounge, the Greatest Generation now finds themselves put to one final test, with their only route to freedom being more bloodshed.
