Jodi Sta. Maria,
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
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 »
This film borrows heavily from other more successful horror films. There were times that it seems like Ouija was lifting scenes from the original Grudge series and other successful J-horror films. The scary scenes are generic yet moderately effective, but I give it credit for exploring the family conflict while delving into the supernatural aspects and the location shooting added a bit. Picturesque locations contributed a bit. Not that there is anything wrong copying more successful trends, this film just doesn't add enough originality of its own. I expected more from the cast. With Calzado and Santos (and yes she can turn in wonderful performances, armchair critics!) onboard with some good actors around, acceptable performances can be considered a let down from them. While Filipino horror films like Sukob, Feng Shui, and Pa-Siyam featured local Filipino superstitions, Ouija is happy to borrow trends, successful ones at that. Try those horror films before renting this. Those films can compete with the best the continent can offer. Horror fans and those looking for Filipino films could certainly pick better films than this.
