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

Horror for Beginners
10 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about this movie, it was from a reviewer on IMDb who rated it as highly as the original Ring and A Tale of Two Sisters. I respectfully disagree with this assessment.

This isn't to say I hated it but rather it was a bit more obvious, linear and formulaic than The Ring and A Tale of Two Sisters.

The first half hour of Ouija is cliché driven plot development, but without much merit. There is nothing to really set it apart or grab the attention.

The movie feels utterly lukewarm. But then the movie starts to take off as the after effects of the Ouija unopposed begin to manifest. In fact almost every scare in the movie was predictable, ineffective, and uninspired. They needed to dig a lot deeper to be anywhere in the league of A Tale of Two Sisters. But I digress.

The movie begins with 4 girls playing with a Ouija board as kids calling out to the "Spirit of the Glass", which leads them to experience some rather odd things but grandmother stops it with an incantation at the water's edge.

We then move 10 years into the future, where the girls on the beach call forth the grandmother who had recently died, with the use of the Ouija board again which leads again to bizarre happenings, but this time the grandmother is not there to stop it.

The girls are really quite beautiful, which doesn't hurt, but I cannot say the movie was scary at all. And while it wasn't scary, it wasn't terrible either. It was just too simplistic.

And like another mentioned, it stole many elements blatantly from other films in the genre including Ju-On, where at least one entire scene was stolen, The Ring, Dark Water, and others.

Ouija is a horror movie for kids just watching their first scary movies.

6/10
