Storyline

Half-sisters Aileen and Romina, along with first cousins Ruth and Sandra, reunite in Camiguin to bury their grandmother. Accompanied by Sandra's friend, Lucy, the five girls dare to call on the spirits of the dead when they find their old Ouija board from when they were kids. The Ouija board is burned by accident before they are able to finish the ritual, trapping a murderous entity around them. As they begin to realize the terror that they have brought upon themselves, Aileen and Romina's hostile relationship even become more strained, while Lucy's sanity brings a heavy burden on Sandra, and Ruth's boyfriend, Gino, is unknowingly pulled into the danger and horror that await all of them. Confronted by imminent Death, the girls have nowhere to go unless they can identify the spirit and find out where it is buried. It is only by leading the spirit to its burial ground that they will able to release the spirit from the Ouija board and survive its fatal hauntings. Written by igma.tv

Trivia

When the concept of the movie was first presented to him, director 'Toppel Lee' was hesitant to accept since there was already an earlier movie made based on the game (Spirit of the Glass (2004) by Jose Javier Reyes) which he described as well-made. So instead of focusing on the game, they decided to focus on the characters being haunted by a ghost. See more »

Asian Horror at its Best!
20 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Actually, I wasn't expecting very much from Ouija. I thought it'd be a another plain Asian horror movie like One Missed Call and Bangkok Haunted. Surprsingly, I found myself quite entertained, the movie could be one of those great Asian horror just like Ring and A Tale of Two Sisters.

At first the story doesn't seemed to be original, but there is much more too it than the "ouija board". Toppel Lee, the director, doesn't focus on the game itself, but on the after effects of it.

The story does have some "Asian horror" clichés, such as the girl with the face covered with hair, but I guess that is just normal because that idea was brought by Ring and then adapted into almost all Asian horror movie like done in A Tale of Two Sisters.

All I can give now is much praise for the movie. The storytelling is told beautifully with flawless shots. The musical score builds up to an excellent scare and terrifying moments along with that beautiful cinematography.

The characters are not shallow. They are human, not just another character in a movie. Each character has their own story, though the movie does focus more around Judy Ann Santos and Jolina Magdangal, who I thought gave an excellent performance.

The supporting cast of the movie does deliver. Desiree del Valle and Iza Calzado were excellent, as always. The great Anita Linda gives one of the best chilling performance I've seen even though her role is limited. The younger cast in the form of Rhian Ramos, Valerie Concepcion, Angela Ilagan and JC de Vera, also gives their best performances.

Overall, Ouija is in the same level of Asian Horror Classics such as Ring, A Tale of Two Sisters and Kairo. The film will definitely deliver scare to you, I guarantee it!
