The Chair

Dare you sit in the chair?

The year is 1900, two rival barristers have proposed to the same woman, Lucy. One of them presents the other with a gift, an old antique chair, that has a dark and sinister past. The chair can supposedly take your soul, and your life...

118 years later, the same chair is found in an abandoned theatre where four friends meet for an ill-fated reunion. Romantic jealousy and a tragedy 25 years ago begin to pull them apart. Is the chair really cursed, or when the first of them dies, is something far less supernatural happening?
