In Queens, at the Rogue Magic Bar, magician Rogue reaches out to contact little Mary Spencer who died an unfortunate death. Rogue claims that the seance, which he has hosted each Halloween for fifteen years, usually features intense paranormal activity, and a paranormal specialist is on hand to help with the event.
Both seances warn that their events are not for children and not for the faint of heart!

As Halloween nears New York's magic community is tapping into its spirit side in seances presented in Brooklyn and Queens. Jason Suran attempts to contact the netherworld in an event presented nightly from today through Halloween. The seance is held at the swank Urban Cowboy Bed and Breakfast in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and is presented jointly by Urban Cowboy and A Taste of Magic. The spooky ceremony accommodates just ten guests at each sitting and also includes an hour of cocktails and appetizers before the show. After a prelude in which Suran talks about notable mediums and the history of earlier seances the lights are lowered to pitch black, and participants around the table join hands as an effort is made to reach the other side.
