Flanagan delivers yet again
 

How anyone can be surprised by how good this film turned out to be is beyond me. From OCULUS to HUSH to BEFORE I WAKE, director Mike Flanagan has proved time and time again that he knows how to make elevated horror films, and OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL is no different. Flanagan's penchant to mix human drama with horror is present here and continues to be a winning formula. After all, caring about the characters is the basis of any good horror movie. The film also has a cast giving credible performances, well-timed jump scares, and a great retro style that hearkens back to horror films in the 1970s. For a Halloween flick, you can't ask for more, and in that front, this Ouija sequel delivers.

Creepy
 

OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL is super creepy. And it has good amount of well-placed jump-scares to rattle even the toughest audiences. As a horror fan, I definitely enjoy this installment way better than its predecessor. ..

This prequel has no business being as good as it is.
 

This prequel has no business being as good as it is. The first Ouija film came out in 2014 and quickly faded away into obscurity. So imagine my surprise when they decide to make a 'prequel' of all things. I hunch is that The Conjuring films have been pretty successful and they are set in the 70's, when things were a little creepier, no cell phones and genuine scary aesthetic. Imagine my surprise again when up and coming horror filmmakers Mike Flanagan was the man behind the camera. The underrated mirror horror flick Oculus and deaf home invasion flick Hush were two of his recent outings. Things were looking not too bad for this flick and to top it off, it received some pretty decent reviews. ..

Infinitely superior to the original
 

I just went back and read my review for the original 'Ouija'. It was a fairly negative review overall and there was an interesting line in there about these movies being doomed before they even start making them because Ouija boards aren't scary. Step forward Mike Flanagan to prove me wrong. Flanagan is becoming a bit of a heavyweight in the horror industry with each of his films so far being very strong. Here, he does the near impossible and makes the a sequel (technically a prequel) infinitely stronger than the original was. ..

creepy atmosphere and good story with an insidious ending
 

Halloween night over her gave us 3 flicks to watch, I watched Train To Busan and The Windmill Massacre but Ouija I never went due the failure of he 2014 version. On poster the font used to write Ouija was the same on both flicks. Never wanted to see this one due the 2014 version I noticed the reviews were better so I did go watch it afterwards. And it's a hell better then the 2014 version. The way it was shot and the slow movement of the flick did add towards the creepy atmosphere. The ticking of the clock throughout the whole picture also add the creeps. It all starts with an Ouija fraud and of course slowly it turns into a possession. It never had any boring moments and the effects used were great. Even as they were CGI, it all worked out fine. Be sure to watch it until the end credits are over, you're in for a big surprise if you're a horror geek. Worth picking up. Gore 0/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 3/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5

"Ouija: Origin of Evil"- Everything the lame-brained and poorly made original was not. Atmospheric, well-paced and lovingly crafted with taste and thoughtfulness.
 

Perhaps the most shocking and surprising treat of the 2016 Halloween season is director Mike Flanagan's prequel tale "Ouija: Origin of Evil"- a skillfully crafted, tasteful and highly atmospheric follow- up to the disastrously bad 2014 thriller "Ouija." It's frankly stunning just how good a film Flanagan was able to build from such a poor foundation, weaving a tale that honestly not only runs laps around it's far inferior predecessor... but honestly made me completely forget about what came before. In my mind, "Ouija" will be a forgotten victim of studio greed, while this prequel will stand tall as the "true" film based on the iconic and controversial board-game of terror. ..

The best Ouija

This prequel is much better than the original
 

Who knew Ouija was going to release a sequel (or in this case, prequel), that could provide more than cheap thrills and shallow characters? Ouija: Origin of Evil certainly delivers. The highlight of this movie would be the wonderful child acting by Lulu Wilson as Doris Zander. Whether intentional or coincidental, the girl portrays childhood innocence very well, which ultimately becomes a mask for the possession. The story is set in the 1960's around a widow and her family who are trying to make money as mediums (counterfeit ones, of course). It is not centered around present day teens making stupid decisions in their hormonal angst, and that is already a good start. There was potential to make it more. The elder sister is very skeptical in the beginning, and remains so throughout the movie. This seems to be her only role in the film, and it would have been nice to see her resolve some of her own conflicts. The effects are not brilliant, especially some that appear on Doris's face, but overall they do the trick. Some may not like the ending, but I for one don't feel the need to achieve moral resolution in any supernatural horror production, so I liked it, even though I wish it hadn't been so abrupt/final. Good movie. 7/10.

Better Than It Has Any Right To Be, But Still...
 

Like most horror movie fans, I was not impressed with the first Ouija film. It was flat and lacking in almost every aspect. For that reason, I didn't plan to spend my hard-earned money on a prequel (this film takes place before the original). The surprise part of my story is that my daughters dragged me to see it and I really liked it. It was a whole different concept than the first film and it worked on many levels to be what I feel is one of the strongest horror films of 2016. ..
