If there’s something I would never do, it’s to take place in a Ouija session. Is it superstition or too many horror movies in my life? It doesn’t matter, when it comes to Ouija, it’s a straight “No, thank you”.
So, when I watch movies about people using spirit boards to contact the dead, I can’t help myself but to think that what happens is purely their own fault.
Now, about the movie… Ouija manages to be entertaining and mildly creepy, just what I needed for a cozy evening on a stormy Saturday. My only critic is that “Origin of Evil” should have been released first since the first chapter offers a better ending to the entire story.
Finally, I was surprised to learn that, even if one of the first mentions of the automatic writing method used in the Ouija board is found in China around 1100 AD, the term “Ouija” is a trademark of Hasbro, Inc.
