All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Ouija: Origins of Evil (2016)



Starring: Elizabeth Reaser, Henry Thomas, Lulu Wilson, Annalise Basso
Director: Mike Flanagan


Premise:
Set in the late 60's, a widowed mother and her two daughters try to make a living off her being a psychic. After a Ouija board is purchase it seems to unleashed the spirits of an evil presence that occupied the house before they moved in.

My Take:
Far better than the original due to the writer/director Mike Flanagan's tight script which allows the viewer to feel for what is happening to the characters. The ending feels like the studio tabbed it on but it doesn't necessarily ruin the movie.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Netflix DVD
