Ouija Movie Review 349

Ouija is a 2014 horror movie directed by Stiles White and starring Olivia Cooke and Daren Kagasoff.

Let me just say that I will not be writing a long post on this movie because it was very silly. I liked movies about Ouija boards, but this one was just not up to par. Think of Witchboard and you will have a good horror movie involving a Ouija board. Maybe this movie was for younger people and I just didn't get it.I just think that some of these new movies are so bad and they have no originality or substance. But, I have to say that they are made for a teenage crowd, so you have to bear that in mind.

I was looking forward to this film, but it was a let down.  The movie revolves around a group of young friends who start messing around with a Ouija board and of course, an evil spirit is contacted and all hell breaks loose. The friends begin to die as the evil spirit is bent on destruction. There is some story about a mother and daughter and the mother killed the daughter, but the daughter was possessed and now she is back through the Ouija board and the pals have to get rid of the evil spirit. See where I am going with this?

Anyway, if you do decide to watch it, make up your own mind. Be warned that this is a very mediocre movie with so many cliches that I had to laugh. So there you have it. I'm not into teenage horror and  many movies are geared towards younger people. If you want something scary, this ain't it. I'm giving it a 2/10.

Ouija boards were the fear of every child in my neighborhood when I was a kid. Schools banned them, churches preached against them, and most parents would wear out your rear if they even heard about us looking at one. So there's always been that mystique and fear of them to me.

So oddly enough I've read about three movies about Ouija boards recently after I thought they had been not thought of for years.

I've watched two of the movies and both were extremely disappointing. This sounds like it would be the third disappointment if I wasted my time. So I'll skip it and thanks for the honest review.
