OUIJA (2014) ... A Boardgame HORROR Filled With DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

I had such high hopes going into this movie because as any horror fan will tell you, good horror movies are definitely rare and far between with 2014 hitting the mark with movies like Occulus and The Babadook, however Ouija is not one of those. The movie was produced by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes, who have given us some decent horrors over the past few years as well as Jason Blum's Blumhouse Pictures.

Unfortunately the story is paper thin and the scariest thing about Ouija is that there are so many missed opportunities to really make us tremble in fear. We all love seeing a group of youngsters / teens die and that's about all this movie got right. The director is only supported by a sketchy and suspect screenplay that could only give us so much.

One of the biggest problems I had with Ouija, apart from the less than scary imagery was the fact that the movie was totally predictable and sadly, that definitely causes a movie to lose it's strength and when you're dealing with horror, that can spell the downfall of many a movie. Go see this one only if you have no other choice and have seen all the other good horrors already but I should probably advise you to give this one a miss.

After a friend is brutally killed in an accident, a group of close teenage friends must confront their most evil and demonic fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board by attempting to contact their friend. They soon realize that the Ouija Board is not just a game; it's real life.
