You might like this movie if you enjoyed:
What Lies Beneath (2000), The Gift (2000)

The story in one sentence: A young girl seems to be haunted by her twin sister who has recently commited suicide.

Storyline: Megan’s sister (both played by Elisabeth Harnois) has recently commited suicide and she is still grieving. To get a change of scene she invites her friends to come to her family’s house in Louisiana to celebrate the solstice, the longest day in summer. As soon as they arrive strange things start to happen and something or someone tries to get Megan’s attention. Is it her sister’s spirit?

My review: Solstice starts off a little slow but picks up its pace within minutes. The actors are doing a good job compared to other teen horror flicks around that time such as I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006) or The Final Destination (2009), but the only memorable performance is probably done by Amanda Seyfried. You are kept guessing until the very end which holds an unexpected twist. I wished they had better special effects but I guess the budget of the movie didn’t allow that. The movie is often advertised as horror, but don’t expect a creepy scary movie. Solstice is not a thriller that keeps you at the edge of your seat but it defintely keeps you interested until the end.

My rating: 5.5/10
