Synopsis

Solstice begins with a group of friends preparing for a summer holiday at the vacation home owned by Megan’s (Elisabeth Harnois) parents. Every year the gang converges on the gorgeous place on the Louisiana Bayou for the Summer Solstice. This year, however, spirits are dampened as one member of the group is missing; Megan’s twin sister Sophie (also played by Harnois) killed herself 6 months earlier in a friend’s bathroom while a party was going on elsewhere in the house.

Immediately upon arriving at the summer house Megan has the strange feeling that her sister Sophie’s spirit is watching. She is also haunted by a keychain that seems to follow her around and a growing obsession with the disappearance of a local girl months earlier. The introduction of local boy Nick (Tyler Hoechlin) adds voodoo and communicating with the dead to the equation, and Megan’s dreams of a muddy death threaten to drive her insane. There is a lot going on here.
