The scene then forwards to present day, <more>
where Debbie Shelley Hennig is playing with the board by herself and is so unnerved by what she experiences that she tries to burn the board and planchette before calling Laine Olivia Cooke . Concerned, Laine comes over but is sent away by Debbie, who goes upstairs only to find the board on her bed. Her eyes turn white and she hangs herself. The following day, Laine is with her boyfriend Trevor Daren Kagasoff at a diner, where they meet up with their friend Isabelle Bianca A. Santos . Laine receives a text and goes home, learning of Debbie's death. After the funeral, Laine finds Debbie's Ouija board and decides to gather Sarah, Trevor, Isabelle, and Debbie's boyfriend Pete Douglas Smith to hold a seance. They make contact with someone who is identified as D, who Laine immediately believes is Debbie. Despite this, the group is too frightened to continue playing. A couple nights later, they're drawn back to the board after each person finds the message "hi friend" in various locations. Upon further interaction with the board, the group discovers that the spirit is not Debbie. Laine looks through the planchette and sees a young girl with her mouth stitched closed, who then warns the group to run from her mother. The group heads home, only for a malicious spirit to follow Isabelle and murder her. Trevor and Laine research Debbie's house and find that a young girl was placed in a mental institution after killing her mother, who she claims killed her sister, Doris. The two travel to the institution and meet Paulina Zander, who states that their mother killed Doris and sewed her mouth shut because she believed that spirits were trying to communicate through her. Trevor and Laine head home and unleash the spirits of Doris and Mrs. Zander. Doris overcomes her mother and the group believes that everything has been resolved. Unfortunately, this is not true as Pete is later killed by Doris. Laine confronts Paulina about this, only to realize that Doris and Paulina were the evil ones and that Mrs. Zander was trying to stop them. Laine's grandmother tells them that the only way to stop the ghost is to burn Doris's body and the Ouija board. Trevor is also killed before Sarah manages to locate the corpse. Both Sarah and Laine are attacked by Doris and it is only through the intervention of Debbie's spirit that the girls survive and manage to burn Doris's corpse and the Ouija board, destroying Doris. The two sisters return home, only for Laine to find the planchette waiting for her in her room.See This Top Movie With Your Family!. Pity It Is So Under-rated!
A realistic glimpse into the dark side (by vasquezrandy321)
"Ouija" is what you would expect from a modern horror film these days, but is able to present watchable content while not dwelling to far out of the ordinary. You'll probably already know the story about the ancient spirit board that can have supernatural abilities linked to the dead, but Ouija manages to make them interesting and fun to watch. Not only that, but it seems as though the producers and directors knew exactly how to coordinate the plot in order to make the film robust. Unlike other horror films these days that go so far out to stand out, Ouija a uses a simple <more>
premise that just works. The acting is good, the story is good, and the scares might sometimes lift a hair up from the back of your neck.
I honestly don't know why this movie only has a 4.4 rating. Having looked at that before walking into the theater made me a little apprehensive about buying a ticket but boy was I in for a surprise. This movie keeps you scared the whole way through. Contains lots of creative jump scares and good plot twists. Lin Shaye is excellent as always especially in horror movies. The pace does not seem too slow or too fast and there aren't any long breaks between something scary happening. Having said that this movie does require a bit of imagination as most horror movies do but if you push <more>
reality aside for 90 minutes you will not be disappointed. In my opinion this is a well-written horror movie that is highly underrated. I would definitely watch it again.
a great movie if u don't expect the world frm it (by hinatahyuuga73)
The movie uses a very well known plot of idiot teens contacting spirit way out of their control. The teens die in pretty horrible ways very fast. However it doesn't feel like the story moves fast because things continuously got worse, but it didn't drag out so long that I lost interest. This movie played on fears I have a lot I.e sewing of the mouth so I was freaked out when I almost never get scared of horror movies. If you walk in expecting this movie to revive the near dead horror genre, you may be disappointed, however with its creepy effects and nice plot twists, it does give <more>
the horror genre a pulse once more showing its a hard genre to kill. I enjoyed this movie because I didn't expect the world of it, and I didn't realize it was pg- 13 for the longest. It doesn't have to b rated R to be scary.
Wow. Just, wow. I do, actually, love this movie and am giving it a 9/10 because of that. Of course, it's not the best but it's not the worst either. Well, hell to those who say that because this is defiantly one of my new favorite modern scary movies.I gotta say, though, I really wanted to give this a 10/10, but there were a few things that bugged me. One was that in the trailer Sarah played by Ana Coto was seen saying "It's not even real, okay. It's just a game," while her voice gets all demonic and her eyes go white. Well, that didn't happen. Well, it did but <more>
it didn't. She said something like that but her voice wasn't demonic nor did her eyes go white. Not to mention the countless other things that happened in the trailer but didn't in the movie. but the thing with Sarah that was so memorable for me personally not being in the movie made me mad for a bit And that wasn't the only thing that bugged me. The movie left off at a weird spot that makes it need to have a part two. And, if you ask me, the parts that we saw in the trailer that weren't actually in the movie will probably be in part two. because they need to make one Now, what if you want to see it but you don't know if it's "your style"? Well, let me break this down. If you're the type who loves jump-scares, you'll like this movie. It's packed full of them. You'll even jump at things that you never thought you'd jump at or things that aren't really a threat. If you're the type of person who likes a lot of gore and morbidness, this movie isn't really for you. Sure, this has some morbid parts here and there, especially with the killing of the characters and the design of the antagonist s ? , but nothing like a slasher-killer movie. And, if you like movies where you'll have people yelling at how stupid the characters can be *cough**cough*Every Scary Movie Ever*cough**cough* then you'll defiantly like this movie. And, I gotta say, despite it's faults, I love this movie, I'm glad I saw it in thee theater, and I would love to spend my money on it again.Now, if you excuse me, I need to go make plans to see this again.
Sunday evening, I went and saw the movie "Ouija". I insisted I would not see this movie, because to be honest I was too scared. Something about summoning spirits just horrifies me! But I went with a few friends so that comforted me a little. I was extremely anxious going into the movie because I was so scared and after watching it, I had every right to be! This movie was definitely scary. Maybe it is because I was already nervous but I will say I was not disappointed! The movie had me jumping and covering my eyes the entire time! My friend next to me was squeezing my hand so hard, I <more>
thought all blood circulation was going to stop in my hand! Coming home that night, I was so scared I had to walk in with my flashlight on my phone just to turn on the lights in my house! As scary and good as it was, I wouldn't say this will go down in the "Horror Movie Hall of Fame" but it is definitely one I would suggest to anyone to go see!
My friend & I really liked this movie. We had seen Annabelle recently & were very disappointed. Not the case with this movie. The beginning did drag a little bit, but not to where you start to get ready to leave. I felt the acting was good. The movie did have an ending, however, it ended in such a way where it would be easy to make a Ouija 2. Isn't that the case with most movies these days? I don't mind that at all, especially if I really liked the movie. We were so spooked that hours later when we were at a casino, a slot machine was making very strange noises as we walked by <more>
it. We thought maybe it was one of those that plays music to get you to play it, but it wasn't. We just looked at each other & rushed out!! I like a good movie that leaves me spooked!
Ouija is one of those that feels like an Asian horror film remade for an American audience. And also it feels like a horror film from the 80's. I don't consider this film a great film, not something I would want to own, but has a horror film it does deliver the jump scares.The young leads in the film are pretty descent, but some of the other characters are hit and miss. The film does have some good twists and turns you sometimes won't see coming, but in some ways if you seen films The Ring 2000 , and The Grudge 2004 , so maybe Ouija will seem like nothing new, but still an <more>
entertaining film. See this movie if you're in the mood for some jump scares.
