Wait, wait, wait! Don’t judge me just yet. Give the post a chance. Let’s get the obvious out of the way. 2014’s stinker called Ouija was a indeed a piece of crap. And somehow (I just looked this up) it made over $100 million at the box office worldwide. Let me repeat that loudly: $100 MILLION! Well because of that, it’s not a shit movie shocker that a sequel was announced. Normally I would yawn and flip off my computer at the same time when I hear something like that, but I saw that director Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus) was attached and suddenly became a little intrigued.
Look who’s having fun with a Ouija board up there! Her eye is quite large. So anyway, Ouija: Origin Of Evil was announced and is actually coming out October 21st – just in time for Halloween. I think that’s one of the other reasons why I’m somewhat interested in this because any horror movie that comes out around Halloween is worth a little of my time. Granted, the PG-13 rating is a downer – but give me some creepy goodness and we can work around that negative.
Did I mention that Henry Thomas from E.T. is in this? Well there you go. Another reason to possibly check it out. Don’t worry, I’ll totally eat crow if this sucks but it can’t be worse than the shit bomb that was unleashed upon us in 2014. On a side note – I’ve never owned a Ouija board and kind of want one. I can summons my Grandma and ask her if she still needs me to mow her lawn. Check out the trailer for Ouija: Origin Of Evil below, and try and ignore some of the CGI:
No true fan of horror is intrigued by a pg-13 imposter.
I’m somewhat a fan of the director and the trailer easily looks better than the first film. Am I saying it’s going to be ‘The Horror Movie Of The Year’? No. But I’m intrigued. I’ve been surprised before, especially with PG-13 horror (not everything has to have blood/guts/boobs to be effective as a horror film). And like I said in the post, if it sucks I’ll admit I was wrong. You can challenge my ‘true fan of horror’ status if you’d like btw – bring it on 😉
