Review: Ouija: Origin of Evil

Eliza Jeffery, Editor in Chief

Director: Mike Flanaganoujia

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Rating: 4/5

Set in 1965 Los Angeles, this suspenseful prequel to 2014’s “Ouija,” has daughters Lina (Annalise Basseo) and Doris (Lulu Wilson) participating in their mother Alice’s (Elizabeth Reaser) seance scam where she acts like she can talk to the dead and tell her customers what their dead relatives are saying. However, things switch around after Alice brings an Ouija board into their act to make the business more interesting and Doris becomes possessed by the Devil’s Doctor and his voices.

The possession of the main character Doris makes the movie scary and suspenseful because it triggers at any moment and viewers don’t know when the daughter will target her next victim. The movie was wasn’t that scary but, it leaves viewers in suspense on what would happen next. The film’s trailer was scarier than the movie itself, but viewers who are interested in ghosts and mysteries will enjoy it.
