So the first one sucked pretty badly. I didn't even understand why they made another one. The trailer was interesting though and it did look quite different to that of the first. I was pretty skeptical about this. To my surprise I hear it's actually fairly good and kind of redeems the failure of the first one. Mike Flanagan also wrote and directed Oculus and Hush. The latter being quite excellent.... read more

I had as much hope as one can be expected to conjure up for a big studio project about a board game when I saw the first Ouija film. Still, I somehow got even less than my low expectations dictated would be reasonably acceptable. Despite this response I went into the follow-up, Ouija: Origin of Evil (a prequel), with some vague hope that it would at least be slightly improved. This hope came court... read more

“I had as much hope as one can be expected to conjure up for a big studio project about a board game when I saw the first Ouija film. Still, I somehow got even less than my low expectations dictated would be reasonably acceptable. Despite this response I went into the follow-up, Ouija: Origin of Evil (a prequel), with some vague hope that it would at least be slightly improved. This hope came courtesy of the man helming the project, Mike Flanagan.

In the last handful of years Flanagan has directed a brilliant and refreshing home invasion movie called "Hush" and, later, one of the best Stephen King adaptations to date in "Gerald's Game". This garnered much good will in my book and gave Ouija: Origin of Evil a fighting chance.

While the use of the titular occult witchboard” read more

"First viewing - Dec. 30th I felt that it was time to watch something I have NOT already seen before, and decided to finally check this one out. Evidently it's better than the original film, which means nothing to me since I had no urge to see that one. But I dig Mike Flanagan's other films I've seen, so I wanted to see whether I'd like this one as well. Overall it was fine. I can't say I was blown away by it, but it's got some effectively creepy moments and visuals. The cast does a decent job"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2017 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 39min. First Viewing Ouija: Origin of Evil is possibly one of the most surprisingly good films that I've seen in a while. It's not a great movie, but it's very well made, and it's holds you're attention from beginning to end. It's a triumph of craft above all else; director Mike Flanagan brings really fright to this thing, and not relying too heavily on tropes (they're here, but they aren't used as a crutch). The ending is a bit of a downer, too beholden to its franchise to sketch out"

"I once bought a oiuja board at a garage sale. After I brought it home, I decided to try it out to since if it really worked, especially considering that I was never one to believe in the supernatural. I started out by asking "Are there any spirits there?" That thingamajig that slides across the board slid over the the "Yes" answer. Since I wasn't really expecting any kind of a response, I was taken somewhat aback, and asked it the first question that popped into my head. "Uhhh..." I mumbled "..."

"Follow the rules. Some games, have rules for a pretty damn good reason. So follow them. Also, Ouija boards shouldn't be mess with."

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2017: First Half (72 movies items)

" It's a massive improvement over it's dreadfully boring predecessor. Yet it's not quite there. It does a lot of great things in keeping the atmosphere going and the characters are interesting enough to keep the momentum up. The problem is that none of the atmosphere or suspense that film have crafted ends up being scary or interesting. The film doesn't go anywhere outside of things that we've already seen. I can appreciate that didn't try go for a big finale, like they do in The Conjuring films,"

"Que triste que el problema mas grave de tu pelicula es que sea genérica y aburrida, en una epoca donde todo el cine de terror esta inundado de esto; Simplemente decepcionante."

"23.04. Elisa Viihde Aitio, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Mike Flanagan Oikeastaan aika viihdyttävä kauhupätkä. Ei nyt tuossa retrotyylissään onnistunut ihan samalla tavalla kuin esimerkiksi Ti Westin House of the Devil eikä tunnelmaa saatu ihan yhtä käsinkosketeltavaksi. Elokuvan hidas alku tuntuu näin ollen vähän tylsältä, mutta kiinnostus jonkin verran herää loppua kohden, kun pappi alkaa ottaa asioista selkoa. "

Interesting film facts (453 movies items)

"During the family's seances, all 3 board rules were violated: family members played alone, a graveyard was involved, and "goodbye" was never uttered. "Ouija" is a trademark of Hasbro, Inc. but is often used as a generic term for any talking board. There are different theories for where the name came from. Two very popular theories are that the board itself told its creator what to name it, and the creator came up with the name after combining the French and German words for "yes" - oui and ja."

"20.3. Koen sen hieman turhauttavana, että kauhuelokuvien kohdalla hyviin arvioihin tuntuu riittävän se, että toteutus on ammattimainen ja katsojan silmät eivät muljahtele epäuskosta teosta katsoessa. Ouija: Origin of Evil on ulkomuodollisesti autenttisen 1960-lukulainen, mutta näppärän hahmokeskeisen alkuosion jälkeen genrekliseitä valjastetaan käyttöön yhä kiihtyvällä tahdilla ja lopulta kaikesta jää vain valju ja niin NÄHTY fiilis. Minkäänlaisia sisällöllisiä riskej"
