OUIJA

 Ouija Movie Review

Two young girls play the board game Ouija--years later, as teens, one of the girls rediscovers the game, only this time it leads her to suicide. Now the other girl (Olivia Cooke, Bates Motel) and her pals try to discover what really happened to their friend. While Ouija doesn't deliver anything really unique, it doesn't deliver anything terrible either. For the most part the acting is okay, with the obvious exception of Lin Shaye (Insidious), but you expect horrible acting from her.

She has all the answers.

The scares range from cheap jump scares to absolutely creepy. There is a decent twist to the plot, but again, it's nothing we haven't seen before. Keep in mind it is rated PG-13, so don't go into this expecting a ton of gore. This movie has obvious Japanese horror influences, and reminds me of movies that came out ten years or so ago--this may explain why I like it so much. This is not a horror classic, but it's not the terrible movie like some make it out to be. I actually quite enjoyed it.
