A great guilty pleasure
25 November 2006 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

"Long Time Dead" is one of the better Ouija board thrillers around.

**SPOILERS**

Tired of partying all night long, Liam, (Alec Newman) convinces friends Stella, (Laura Belmont) Rob, (Joe Absolom) Webster, (Lukas Haas) Spencer, (James Hillier) Annie, (Melanie Gutteridge) Lucy, (Marsha Thomason) and Joe, (Mel Raido) to try a Ouija board. As they start to die mysteriously, they find evidence that the Ouija board used may have summoned a Djinn through it. After finding the same thing happened years earlier to a coven of devil worshipers, they search for the answers for getting rid of the Djinn. Aware the Djinn is one of them, they race to stop it from taking over their friends.

The Good News: This is one of the better Ouija board thrillers out there. The best part about the film is that there's an abundance of very creepy scenes during an attack. Each one is predated with some wonderful atmosphere and has their own individual moment. The one in the boiler room at the beginning is incredibly creepy, as the setting involved, the constant off-screen bumps, creeks and groans, and the crazy camera angles make it a great suspense scene. A couple of other moments that are quite suspenseful. There is a spot near the end where one of the teens is hiding in a locker and the monster walks up and stares malevolently inside. Then his eyes shift into evil cat's eyes mode. The other big scene is the external shot of the students' house, where the demon stalks a soon-to-be-victim and switches off the lights on each floor one by one as they walk up the stairs, all seen from outside. Even inside, there is a tense moment as that victim quietly walks around the house trying to get out after conveniently leaving his keys upstairs, therefore having to go back up and get them and having to get out once again. The continuing circumstances around it makes it all the better and creepier. After all that, the film does have some great gore and some great deaths. There's some great burn marks over the body, some ripped throats, having their head rammed against a wall repeatedly, and being stabbed with a wooden stake, among other great deaths. The great news about the gore is that it's never over-the-top and is just the perfect amount for the type. The very rapid pace is quite perfect, keeping it moving along nicely without a lot of down-time in between the kills. It's a really decent film.

The Bad News: There's relatively few points I can fault with this one. The main one is that there's a real clichéd feeling to everything involved. The Ouija board is brought in with very little creative thought, the fact that nothing really happens out of the ordinary and the ending twist being so obvious to guess are classic examples of this. They are the main examples of what's wrong, as it's nothing new that's been seen before.

The Final Verdict: It's nothing new, but there's at least a lot of suspense and some decent deaths to aid things along. It's worth watching if you're into those kinds of films, but don't expect nothing ground-breaking in the process.

Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Language and drug use
