Ouija: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

A lot of films "Ouija" related films had already come out, and we weren't surprised anymore when we saw another one. The trailer seems not that interesting enough but well, it's a horror film, so we might give it a try.

Laine (Olivia Cooke) was shocked when she received a news that her best friend Debbie (Shelly Hennig) commits suicide. She had a feeling that something was not right and starts to search for answers. On Debbie's house, she saw a Ouija board, which she has been using before she died. Laine decided to play the game with her friends to ask some questions to Debbie. However, they didn't realize that they created a portal to communicate with a malicious spirit that started to haunt them one by one.

The film is pretty much the same all over again. Where they contacted the wrong spirit, and we see our teenage friends die one by one. There are some few scares that the film offers, and its a bit long before the movie starts to ram up their premise. They also opt to not fully capitalize with their scare tactics as when the tension starts to rises, they immediately cut short on that scene.

Overall, Ouija doesn't quite have the ideas to deliver a decent horror flick. It just stays put and the characters seem to roam around waiting for something bad to happen. With a short run-time it's much better than Devil's Pact but as a whole, it doesn't deserve your money to spend it inside the theater.
